All About Jessica

Jess is a skilled therapist with a warm and personable therapy style. She has almost 10 years of experience working with adults in a variety of settings. Jessica provides a safe and collaborative environment to help her clients gain new perspectives and achieve relief from distressing emotions.

In session, she uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which explores how negative thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. This approach helps clients to learn how to identify and re-frame negative core beliefs. Once they are identified they can be replaced with more positive beliefs, which improves the individuals mood and outlook on life.

She also uses Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) which focuses on mindfulness and developing emotional regulation skills. DBT teaches clients strategies that help them manage strong feelings and develop healthier responses to their emotional triggers.

Clients who work with Jessica can expect to leave sessions feeling equipped with practical coping skills to use as they navigate the ups and downs of their lives.
