About Me

I am a Professional Clinical Counselor licensed in Virginia. I am also a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC) and a Registered Peer Recovery Specialist (RPRS) with almost 6 years of experience working with clients with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, addiction, OCD, and family problems. I’ve also guided people on how to reach goals, make important life decisions, and helped them achieve their goals for a greater purpose for their lives.
My counseling style is client-centered, collaborative, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I believe helping you process your emotions in a safe nonjudgmental environment, will allow you to feel more in control and safer before we get into heaver topics.
My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, person centered. Each person is unique and so is your treatment. We will work together to formulate a treatment plan based on your needs. Some of the techniques I’ve used in the past are journaling, homework assignments, mindfulness practices, worksheets, and videos.
I look forward to getting to know you better and helping you to achieve your goals!

Jessica is very sweet and understanding. She is a great listener, which is important as I tend to just verbally dump whatever is on my mind! She can listen, parse out my spiel, and work with me to provide steps towards improving my situation.

Written by J.E. on Dec 16, 2021 after therapy with Jessica for 3 weeks

Jessica is patient, kind, and caring. Very loving. She listens to understand, not to respond. I never thought that someone could understand all of me including what I have been through but Jessica is one of a kind and knew exactly what I would be thinking before I could get it out. She is just amazing.

Jessica is a thoughtful, knowledgeable and deeply empathetic therapist. She utilizes time well and I always come away feeling like I have something to chew on and work with, and I've been heard in the process. I've had sessions on hard days and good days, and she met me where I was at in both circumstances.
