Jessica Gihm primarily utilizes TEAM therapy, a type of cognitive behavior therapy that was developed by Dr. David Burns. TEAM stands for testing, empathy, agenda-setting, and methods. It is a framework for conducting evidenced-based therapy. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is based on the idea that if we can change the way we think, we can change the way we feel.
Jessica holds a Master of Arts Degree in Counseling Psychology from Western Seminary. Which is an institution that specializes in fostering graduates’ appreciation and inclusion of spirituality, attachment, and family systems perspectives in their counseling work.
Since 2008, Jessica has provided individual and group treatment services to adults in community mental health treatment settings with a specialty in cognitive-behavioral interventions and treatment models (e.g. Seeking Safety and TEAM therapy). Additional clinical experience includes work as an inpatient assessment counselor, administrative supervisor to mental health clinicians, a trainer and coach to new clinicians, private practice clinician providing couples and individual therapy, and as a mental health director supervising behavioral health staff in a correctional facility.

Jessica has helped me tremendously figuring out how to improve and change a difficult personal relationship issue. She is highly skilled in up-to-date techniques that allowed me to make rational decisions. Jessica is also very patient and focused on improving the situations of those who seek her help and support. I recommend her to anyone who finds themselves in a situation that seems unsolvable. She will support you and help you find the solution that is best for you.
Jessica has been a wonderful counselor! She listens, provides thoughtful comments, helps me to view situations differently, and holds me accountable. Would highly recommend her to others!
Just cause very very involved and listens, she is kind and responsive and understands.
I would highly recommend her for any first responder.
I took a break for a little over a month and realized in that time just how much sessions with Jessica have benefitted me.
I signed back up and look forward to continuing work with her.
Jessica is an amazing therapist!
