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!

LPC #2959 (Expires: 2021-07-01)
She is very knowledgeable, patient, supportive, helpful, flexible, I truly couldn’t imagine using a different counselor. She is very straight forward, doesn’t just tell you what you want to hear, tells you what you need to hear to be your best self, she is the beat!!
Dr. Hamm always show great interest in the people who she works with. Always listening and encouraging me to do better, when I feel like everything isn't going well. Providing useful advice and feel back with life and personal growth.
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 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
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 is a consummate professional and at the same time warm and engaging.

Kind, sweet, and brilliant. Someone who goes quickly to the heart of the matter.
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.
Dr. Hamm has such a warm sense of communicating, full of positivity and hope. She always responds in a timely manner and has wonderful things for me to ponder in between communication. I’m very thankful to be paired with Dr. Hamm.
It is still early but she is much better than any previous counselor.
Dr. Hamm is a wonderful counselor. She is easy to talk to and share things with. I feel like I am talking to a friend who truly cares.
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.
I don't know where to start with Jessica. She's such an amazing listener and understands what I'm dealing with. I feel like I can trust her for what ever is on my mind. Very professional and the warmest person I know.
I am still new to this service. So far, Dr. Hamm is good at asking questions that are important for me to think about myself and which challenge me.
Dr. Hamm has been very understanding of my issues. She has helped me to come to terms with the root causes of my anxiety and depression and has helped me deal with a very tough year. I appreciate how considerate she is and how caring she seems to be.

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.
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.
Dr. Hamm is so understanding! She's professional while still being so easy to talk to. I have never clicked with a counselor so fast!
