About me

Greetings! Allow me to introduce myself. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Missouri. I am a graduate of University of Missouri-Columbia. I have been a MSW for just over 5 years but have worked in the human services field for over 25 years. I practice CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, Complex Trauma Integration , T-CBT and EMDR. I am creative and eclectic. I love expressive arts therapy, utilizing movement, visual arts, music and storytelling to move towards personal growth. I am a challenger and confront clients on incongruencies, inconsistencies and behaviors that just aren't moving them towards their goals. I am a teacher, providing skills training to deal with strong emotions. I am a cheerleader, rooting for you all the way. I am also a confidant and safe place .
I would love to hear your story. I listen, seeking to build on strengths that will empower you to overcome the challenges that are between you and the life you are striving for! Together we will develop a plan to help you achieve your goals. I truly believe that you are the most important person in your treatment. My goal is to build a relationship that will support you in this process. I look forward to our work together!

Jessica is well versed in the nuanced factors at play with my particular issue, and able to not only provide counseling directly on the issue I came to counseling for, but also, the wholistic context of other issues at work in my situation. Highly recommend her!
