My name is Jessica Slash, and I am a licensed clinical social worker. I have spent most of my adult life working in human services, resulting in over 20 years of experience working with people from all walks of life, each with unique stories and experiences.
My therapeutic approach prioritizes safety and acceptance, so we can cultivate a non-judgmental space for you to think about how to live your best life—walking alongside you as you develop the insights and skills that help you uncover and move through any internal challenges that might become barriers to you achieving the life and relationships you desire.
My work as a therapist is deeply rooted in evidence-based science around trauma, attachment, and adaptive and affective neurology. Using this science as a foundation, together, we will tailor your treatment to your goals and individual needs. The work we do will be deeply rooted in the neurobiological realities of what it means to be human and the impact our life experiences have on our emotional, psychological, biological, and neurological well-being.
Our work together may include processing and learning how to heal from past traumas, coping with and understanding anxiety or depression, working through adult attachment challenges, or simply supporting you as you move through life's challenges. No matter your goal, I sincerely believe in your ability to overcome challenges and move forward to live the life you desire and deserve.
Should you choose this path with me, I look forward to working with you and hope to be of service to you soon.

Jessica is an incredibly knowledgeable and skilled therapist. She is always up to date on the latest research, listens carefully and seems to almost intuitively always know what you need and how you need to receive it. She’s by far one of the bed therapists I’ve ever worked with.
So compassionate and honest! Highly recommend!

Jessica was the person I needed to listen to me as I felt I had nobody to talk to. She really legitimized my feelings and I’ve felt instantly better about so many things.

Jessica is amazing! I've never done therapy until recently but every week I seem to learn something new with her. She has a style that fits me perfectly. Very easy to talk to. I don't think I could see another therapist after her. She is very intuitive. I learned more about myself in one hour than I have in 38 years the first session. Amazing person and even better therapist! RESPECT
