Hi I'm Jessica and I am originally from California, now living and licensed in Tennessee with 15 years of professional work experience. Rather you are looking for just someone to help you figure it out or help you navigate through career problems, family and couple issues or deeper mental health problems, I'm here! I've built my career as a clinician helping clients with stress and anxiety, depression, coping with substance use and legal issues, relationship issues, and trauma and abuse. Everybody is unique and have developed some positive strengths to help guide them and overcoming challenges as well as some unproductive thoughts and behaviors that may be problematic. I'd like to help you channel the positives to defeat the negatives and live a more fulfilling life. I believe it’s not what you are experiencing as much as it is how you are viewing it and dealing with it. I use therapeutic approaches that respect your values and accentuate the positives. My overarching approach is cognitive behavioral analysis and therapy. It’s an intervention that examines how the thinking process guides behavior and uses acceptance, mindfulness, and commitment to initiate change. If you or your loved one is experience emotional or mental health symptoms and desire to manage it better, I’m here! You are here taking the first step in seeking a more rewarding and happier life and I am here to support you in that process.

Jessica is fantastic. She understands what I’m going through and helped me see around the stigmas surrounding mental health. No judgements, just results!

I have been talking with Jessica for a couple weeks now, and I am grateful that she responds quickly in our chat messages, listens to my concerns, and is comforting on our video calls. I am glad I joined better help, it is useful for me to talk with a therapist on my own schedule.

Jessica has been incredibly insightful. Her ability to take what I say and present an alternate perspective has been very helpful. She is always professional and challenging. She present ideas and tasks that challenge me to put myself outside of my comfort zone for a better me and I really appreciate that.

Therapy for me was a big step, especially conducting it in a virtual setting. I was matched with Jessica Lyons and when I say she is a well needed breath of fresh air, I mean it! She actively listens, take notes and suggest/recommends working points on what I need to work on. I feel so comfortable talking with her and she puts my mind at ease throughout our sessions.
