About me

Hi there, I am a licensed independent social worker with over 15 years of experience in the medical field. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, and chronic health issues. Prior to working in the medical field, I worked in mental health clinics and helped patients manage and overcome life crises. I also specialize in helping people get connected with community resources for basic needs such as affordable housing, food, and health insurance.

My counseling style is warm, interactive, and solution-focused. I believe that listening well and meeting people where they are at emotionally, mentally, and in all aspects is key. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your own specific needs and what you would like to achieve.

It definitely takes courage and motivation to seek help and positive change in your life. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

My practice hours are 7:45am - 4pm Monday - Friday. I usually check my messages 2-3 times each week unless it is the weekend. I would then respond to you that following Monday.

Jodi is great at listening and providing insight as well as tools to manage the challenges we face in life from setting boundaries to self care and self reflection. She has been a huge help to me.

I really like Jodi. She is professional and really hears me.

I don’t know what I would do without Jodi’s help during this difficult time. Words aren’t enough to describe how much she has helped me. She is doing Gods work. I can’t thank her enough for always listening to me and showing care and compassion for everything I share. And giving me feed back and techniques to help me work through the difficulties in life.

I have enjoyed working with Jodi. she listens to me about the several different issues i'm having trouble with. she lets me talk then she provides realistic ways for me to deal with these issues. once she pointed out that life is messy. when i'm having a problem I forget that i'm not the only person with a problem. she is right, life is messy for everybody. she has given me some tools I can use like journaling and what mindfulness is. she has recommended books that I have found useful. I like that she keeps her private life to herself. i need her professional help much more than I need her friendship. I am able to talk with her about issues that friends should never know of. I am comfortable with her and trust that she gives me her best. she is a gift from God. I needed her and through betterhelp I'm getting the help i've needed for a long , long time.

Jodi is a great, attentive listener, but more than that she contributes to the conversation and gives inspired advice. She’s changed my perspective on a number of behaviors and has given me tools to work things out. She makes me feel secure in showing who I am. And she has her own personality. Highly recommended.
