I have been practicing psychotherapy for 13 years in various clinical settings. I have experience helping adults cope with depression, anxiety, interpersonal relationships, life transitions, parenting issues, vocational issues, anger management, trauma, abuse, and grief. I practice cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which examines the relationship between your thoughts and the feelings that those thoughts cause. I also teach stress relief, which frankly we all need, in the form of relaxation techniques and mindfulness. I can help you reduce your worries and stress, adjust to change, reach your personal goals, and find short and long-term solutions to the problems you’re struggling with.
I'm glad you're here with me on this journey!

I have transformed so much for the better with Jessica's support. I'm so grateful for her and everything she's guided me through. She's helped me gain so much in terms of self-love and self-advocacy. Whenever I tell my friends the wise nuggets from Jessica, they always tell me that I have the best therapist, and I agree. She really listens and tells me what I need to hear to help me best navigate life's tough moments in a way that are truly in integrity with me. I highly recommend her!
