Professional statement

Jasmine Appleberry is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Lincoln, RI who works with adults across the lifespan, often during times of transition, when life changes can bring about uncertainty and unearth old fears. Her clients range from recent high school or college graduates, to people who have recently moved to the area, career changers, and retirees who are navigating the difficulties of anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, loneliness, and self-esteem. With a background in medical social work, Jasmine also has expertise in the emotional complexities of grief, loss, and chronic illness.

Jasmine utilizes a mindfully-driven and integrative approach, drawing from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Her goal is to help clients learn to identify patterns in thoughts and emotions, so that they can decide how they want to move forward. Alongside more insight-oriented work, looking at how past experiences contribute to present challenges, Jasmine is dedicated to helping clients build practical life skills such as creative problem-solving and communication strategies. In session, she is interactive, provides feedback, and uses humor when appropriate.

Open and accepting, Jasmine’s office is a safe and supportive space for people from all walks of life, and she is particularly knowledgeable about the unique challenges facing members of the LGBTQ community. Jasmine's style is authentic, honest, and transparent. She believes every person deserves to feel comfortable in their skin and have the skills they need to assert themselves out in the world.


Message to clients

Your perspective is valuable to me, and I want you to have a chance to express it in a space of safety, warmth, and collaboration. You deserve to be heard and to get help uncovering your wishes, what gets in the way, and how you can lead a more fulfilling life. We will talk about tools, but we will also talk about how your unique assets and values can be built upon, and how your patterns can change meaningfully. Moving through painful transitions, acceptance and change can both be hard. I believe in hope, and I want to be with you as you feel more empowered, and know more ease and satisfaction. I am a very down-to-earth, engaged, and compassionate therapist. I will deeply respect that you have come to me, that you have great undiscovered wisdom and skills, and that we are embarking on this journey together.
