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!

I loved that Jessica took the time before our first session to find out what my concerns were and then came prepared to our session with a plan and therapy route. If she hasn't heard from you in a couple days she takes the initiative to check in and see how you're doing. She is kind, validating yet helpful, and very pleasant to talk to!
