Dr. Jessica Hamm

(PhD, LPC-MHSP, MAC)

About Me

I am a PhD level counselor licensed in Tennessee with nine years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including: depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem issues, trauma, and addiction related issues.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe we are all worthy of being treated with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is tailored to the individual but I have found a lot of benefit in blending cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and mindfulness based counseling approaches. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes a lot of courage just to make that first contact for help. I am here to empower you and be with you each step of the way as we face life’s challenges together.

I look forward to working with you!

Dr. Hamm is by far the beat therapist I have ever seen, and I’ve had my fair share growing up, couldn’t see me doing therapy with anyone else at this point!

Written by C.A. on Aug 17, 2020 after counseling with Jessica for 1 month on issues concerning depression, and addictions

Dr. Hamm has been very kind and understanding, and informative regarding the issues I've presented. She has followed up with me consistently, even when I've not reciprocated the contact in a timely manner.

First and foremost, Jessica is compassionate. She creates a welcoming environment where you can be yourself and be open about what you’re going through. I’ve been seeing her for about 3-4 months and have seen so much improvement in how I feel. :)

Dr. Hamm is wonderful to work with. She is very understanding and knowledgeable. I have only been working with her for about 3 weeks and she has already helped me so much.

Dr. Hamm has been really supportive through my journey to better health. Being there when I'm feeling like emotionally train wreck and always cheering me on. Even when I'm not at my best. I couldn't ask for a therapist who's willing to give me useful advice and feedback.

Thanks for all your help.

Dr. Hamm has helped me face my social anxiety. She not only has helped me through some tough times, but has also helped me stand on my own. I would greatly recommend Dr. Hamm

My progress is slow, but Dr. Hamm is patient and respects where I’m at in my grieving process. Having my feelings validated with compassion and guidance is something I’ve never experience in my life. Dr. Hamm is truly saving my life.

Dr. Hamm is the BEST

Written by A.I. on Jun 25, 2020 after counseling with Jessica for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Dr. Hamm has been incredible. She is so skilled and knowledgeable! She handles every message and conversation with compassion, kindness, and care. She's so skilled at therapy that my epiphanies often feel like my own idea, but I can see from my own psychology education where she is helping me connect the dots without giving me the answers. I always feel heard and validated. With her help, I have made significant strides in my mental health. The ability to message with her daily is a huge asset to my life and mental health, as is the function where I can share journal entries with her directly. I recommend Betterhelp often and I highly recommend Dr. Hamm to anyone who is looking for a therapist!

Dr. Hamm is amazing. She adds expertise when needed, but sits back and listens when I need to vent. I’ve learned so much about myself and grown so much in such a short amount of time.

Dr. Hamm was the 3rd therapist I tried on here. He stood out because she showed active listening, deep understanding, and asks a lot of questions. I feel like I can trust her with my mind and she won't lead me astray. I plan fo keep seeing her for a long time.

Jessica is one of the most down to earth people I've ever met. She's real and authentic. She doesn't shy away from the issue but also has an extremely warm tone and approach to the issues at hand. I love how she's honest but always there in my corner to support me. She never makes me feel judged or unheard. She's been an enormous help.

Jessica has been a trusted ear for me during a very difficult time. Her insight and helping me understand situations has saved me a lot of extra pain. I am very grateful to have had her as a counselor and would highly recommend her.

Written by T.R. on Jul 17, 2017 after counseling with Jessica for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, grief, sleeping, self esteem, and career

She was wonderful with my problems, letting me speak all my worries and suggestions and making sense of my babbling. In the end, everything she suggested to me worked and she has a calm essence around her, it makes you want to trust her. And that is what I did and I was happy I did. I would recommend Dr. Hamm to anybody.
