About Me

Hi! I am a licensed clinical social worker in Indiana with over 10 years of experience. I have worked with children, adolescents and adults with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma, and anger management. I have mostly worked in schools as a school social worker, but also have experience doing outpatient, home-based counseling and residential treatment.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is meeting my clients where they currently are and making realistic goals. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I will never judge you or your experiences. I will always support and encourage you throughout your journey.

It takes a lot of courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Jessica is willing to text, video or call for our sessions. She listens and asks questions that make me think. She has a very warm voice which really helps soothe the soul.

Jessica is simply the best. She is always there for me when I need to talk and I so appreciate her warm and non-judgmental style. Our sessions have become such a beacon of hope in my life, and I feel grateful that I can work on bettering myself with her guidance every day.

I have been in counseling before and Jessica has been the only one who understands how I’m feeling and she is very relaxed and laid back. I don’t feel pressured at all to tell her everything.

Jessica just gets it, and is very supportive.
