Professional statement

Jessica received her Master’s in Social Work from New York University, going on to complete her licensure (LMSW) in New York and New Jersey. She has experience working in a wide range of clinical settings allowing for an in-depth understanding of the life transitions and daily stressors impacting adult lives. Jessica specializes in working with young adults in helping them overcome challenges, navigate relationships, and develop strategies to build the life they want to live.

Jessica focuses on getting to know her clients beyond the surface. She takes pride in her ability to build trust with each client, developing a meaningful connection that allows for vulnerability and self-reflection, without fear of judgement. She takes the time to understand the experiences her clients are struggling with while valuing, exploring, and understanding the person as a whole.

Through extensive training in evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness Training, and Trauma-Informed Care, Jessica is able to draw on and integrate different therapeutic modalities in order to meet the unique needs of her clients.

With the understanding that each client has their own set of challenges and experiences, she works collaboratively with her clients towards their goals and develops a tailored plan for each individual. Jessica believes that with the right tools and support, clients can begin to create the shifts they want to see in their lives.


Message to clients

At the center of my therapeutic work is the relationship with each of my clients. I take the time to learn who each client is, where they come from, and what their goals are.

My approach is collaborative and compassionate. I work hand-in-hand with my clients to empower them in identifying their strengths and skills while developing recognition surrounding patterns and thoughts that are no longer serving them.

Through listening and truly understanding, I work with clients in developing different insights into themselves, their relationships, and the way they show up in the world. Together, we build coping tools and strategies to manage difficult moments, emotions, and circumstances,

I believe the key to success in therapy is authenticity. I strive to build an environment where my clients can show up as who they, however they are. Whether there are areas clients are feeling stuck in or frustrations they want to talk through, the atmosphere I create is one without any judgment or pressure and one where clients can feel safe, valued, and supported.
