I am a licensed clinical social worker in Idaho with over 10 years of experience working as a counselor. I have worked with clients across the life span who come with concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, addiction and co-morbidity issues, family dynamic challenges, and those with a trauma history.
I approach counseling as a partner with my clients. I believe in compassion and empathy and that feeling truly heard is valuable to clients. My approach combines client-centered, cognitive-behavioral methods, and the use of dialectical behavior skills . We will work together to determine the approaches you feel best support your journey of growth.
Examining ourselves and wanting to grow is heroes' work! I look forward to supporting you in your journey.

Jessica can understand the situation or challenge at hand, and even what I’m feeling, without me giving her the greatest explanation. I really appreciated her advice and it benefitted me quite a bit. She is so kind and patient.

Absolutely love her from my first appointment. Was having issues with our online session and she did all she could to fix it and ended up calling me. Made me feel validated that I did matter and she cared!
