Hello and welcome! As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I believe in a strength based approach to personal healing and growth. As a therapist, I respect the opportunity to work with individuals and families struggling with grief and loss by providing a safe place to share, learn and heal.
I foster empathy and acceptance as patients and families address life changing diagnoses and care needs. With over ten years of experience providing support to individuals and caregivers struggling with dementia and mood related issues, I utilize an integrated approach including, but not limited to, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Psychotherapy. I seek to empower individuals and families with the knowledge and tools they need to promote dignity and wellness.
Finally, my background in grief and loss counseling has also prepared me to address the unrecognized and often untreated issues associated with pet loss, specifically the complicated and overwhelming emotions associated with chronic and terminal care of a pet, related end of life issues, and the emotionally challenging process of pet surrender.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. Your insight and willingness to seek support is the first step toward healing and growth. I wish you the best on your journey!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Jessica Hanson. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
After learning that local therapists were scheduling six or more months out, I reluctantly turned to betterhelp. I was matched with Jessica right away and we met that same week. She has been such a gift to my journey. She helped me climb out of a very dark space and once I was more healthy, helped me work toward other professional and personal goals. She is well-trained in both mental health and leadership coaching. Awesome presence. Amazing, deep knowledge. She is the best of the best.
Jessica has been SO helpful to me. She is exceedingly patient and kind. I started out wanting to work on my romantic relationships with her and have ended up working on so many other aspects of my life by extension - career, family, etc. I highly recommend her as a therapist.
Jessica takes time to address and correct thinking while covering several topics each session. I appreciate her forward thinking approach and focus on strengths and activities to do between sessions. She is down to earth and straight forward, while taking time to identify and connect with you.
Working with Jessica has been awesome so far! She has validated my feelings every step of the way, finds ways to point out my strengths, and then use them to address any concerns I have.
I have only been working with Jessica for 2 weeks and I am already learning a lot. She is a great listener and our sessions have been very productive. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for help. I am excited to continue working with her and changing myself for the better.
I sought out BetterHelp because I felt stuck. I chose Jessica specifically because of her work related to grief over dogs. My issue was not dog grief (though some of it might be) but I thought someone that empathetic would be a good person to have in my corner. I have had just two sessions but I already feel more in control of my life and future. In my first session alone, I felt a heavy load lift from my shoulders for all the insight. Jessica is a wonderful listener and provides intuitive, practical tools for navigating relationships and the future.
In the short time I have met with Jessica, I am blown away at how easy it is to talk to her, how understanding she is and how much I have gotten out of our sessions! She is wonderful!!!
Jessica is a great listener and really asks probing questions to understand your situation and works out solutions tailored just for you
