I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with over 6 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and over 10 years of experience as a life coach. I have primarily worked with clients dealing with various concerns including depression and anxiety, self-esteem/self-worth, relationship issues, sexual orientation, and career challenges. I also aid in helping people deal with trauma from racial oppression and violence.
My counseling style is direct and caring, with you as the leader and expert of your experience. I meet you where you are and begin with strengthening the foundation you will build on. Whatever ideations, thoughts, and beliefs you currently have will be used and/or challenged in an environment that allows you to safely, freely, and openly express them. Aside from safety concerns, this is a completely judge free zone no matter the culture/subculture, gender, pronoun, or race. I create and uphold an environment of MUTUAL respect of boundaries and you are able to go at your pace. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, experiential, psychodynamic, and motivational-interviewing which would be tailored to your needs.
I believe in elevating the personal power within and guide you towards accessing that. Living in truth looks different for everyone. Let's find out what it looks like, for you!

I haven’t returned to Jessica for a long time, but even with one message, it’s like I’m back to being supported on everything, which is just a testament to her talents as a therapist. BetterHelp is lucky to have her!

Jessica Mitchell is and continues to be a great listener, giver of insightful advise, and confidante. She helps me focus on what is important while providing space, time, and support when I struggle through my emotions. I like the homework she gives, specific thoughts to reflect and/or write about. She has helped me figure out where I should focus and always tailors the work in and out of our sessions to align with my wants/ needs. Very grateful to have her as my therapist.

My life is changing for the better because of the support and guidance I receive from Ms.Mitchell. Her ability to pick up where we left off or where I currently am is amazing! And she’s always on point and takes time to discuss, question and guide me towards my goals in this therapy.
