Jessica Bailey

LCSW

About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Louisiana with over 6 years of experience working as a social worker. My experience includes working with adults 18+ as well as families with members of all ages. I have worked in many settings including Department of Corrections, hospitals, home based, outpatient mental health clinic, and substance abuse treatment clinic. I have background in providing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Grief Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, addiction counseling, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness techniques.

I value the dignity and worth of my clients as well as their right to self determination. I view the client as the expert, as they are giving the details of his/her own life. I do not see it as my place to pretend like I know what he/she is going through but instead provide a safe, comfortable space where we can work together as a team to work through problems or emotional needs that may be interrupting his/her daily life. The therapeutic relationship is extremely important in therapy. I will do my best to ensure that my clients feel they are a priority and can be honest and open while working with me. I pledge do the same.

Jessica is an “old soul”. I felt totally comfortable with her from the start. She made me feel heard and helped me focus on where to begin on my path forward. She pointed out a perspective that hadn’t occurred to me previously. I felt a bit lighter and more hopeful after my session. Looking fwd to working with her towards a brighter tomorrow!

I have enjoyed every moment of therapy with Jessica Kelly, from the first session I could tell that she understood my concerns and was more than willing to try different styles to see what fit me best. She often sends messages between live sessions to check in and is very prompt with responses. I would recommend her to everyone!
