About me

My name is Jessica Myers and my greatest passion in for helping people! I help by meeting each client, who include children, adults and families, to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships by discovering each members strength and build resilience so they can know themselves as peaceful, complete, whole and safe. I do this through kindness and connections with individuals as well as resources.

My educational background includes a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology with emphasis on marriage and family from Webster University. I have a Bachelors in Arts. in Psychology from Columbia College. I am a practicing Licensed Professional Counselor. My resume is colored with a wide variety of jobs working with diverse populations, from bartender to full time mother to directing a clinical program with a community mental health company, that deeply influence my work with people. I have been a crisis counselor and outreach counselor as well working with families with have a member who have a developmental delay, I have experience counseling in domestic violence shelters as well.

I believe connecting people with resources and support can assist in all facets of relationships and allow for each person to gain additional knowledge and support. I allow each person to process and talk about any question or feelings in a safe place where we can work together to learn what will work for each person and client. I will be there to help guide each person with their own skill set to help with any challenging behaviors that may present and we will problem solve together.

I’m not a nod-and-smile, sort of therapist, I love to find solutions and I stay current in all research so I can bring tools to help each person — you’ll find that I laugh loudly, wear leggings and love to find mindful moments in my day while looking for all the positive things I can find and I practice yoga, thankfully it’s the effort not the harder poses that count! I know if I’m not real, I can’t expect you to be either.

And when you feel safe to be real with me, we can work on how that carries over into the rest of your life.

I do that through a variety of approaches. I’m holistic, looking at all aspects of your life: mind, body and spirit. I’m eclectic, drawing from years of my own clinical training, graduate work, and experience. I’m a learner, continuing to research and attend trainings, and “geek-out” on resources to enhance my therapy and leadership skills.

My clients appreciate that I offer a ton of support and make them feel safe in therapy, yet I don’t shy away from giving direct feedback and ideas, or challenging a thought or belief that might be getting in the way of progress. I like to hear about relationships, past and present, believing that they hold many keys to your breakthroughs. I’ll provide tools and strategies as needed, and perhaps a book recommendation… or two.

Another thing you need to know about me?

I truly believe your life and your relationships can get better! It will take work, and some time, but it ABSOLUTELY is possible, and I’m here to help you make that happen.

As an avid world traveler, I enjoy working with clients from many different cultural and religious backgrounds. I have been on multiple multicultural competency committee at all places of employment.

When you develop a relationship with a caring, attuned therapist and leader you will find new ways to solve problems, heal old wounds, and change the way you live your life.

My Mission: Create a Safe Space Where All People Can Grow

"We have to be vigilant about creating a culture in which relationship people feel safe, seen, heard, and respected."

I am dedicated to creating an open and inclusive space that welcomes and reflects diversity of all kinds.
