Jessica believes therapy should provide the client with a greater understanding of where they want to go in life, and support them to move in that direction. She strives to provide a safe, non-judgmental space so a client is free to explore. In this space we can empathically question patterns and dynamics that may be holding one back from making changes in life.

 

We can work together to remove barriers, or reframe how one thinks about and interacts with challenges.  Through increasing mindful awareness of what is or is not working in life and exploring core values and goals, the client is empowered to grow and thrive.

 

Jessica’s approach to therapy is psychodynamic and collaborative, also utilizing techniques from acceptance and commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
