Professional statement

Dr. Jessica Cardwell is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with a private virtual practice based out of Northern Virginia. Dr. Jessica has worked with children, adolescents, adults, and families for nearly 20 years in the D.C. area, and now also provides virtual therapy services to clients in most states.

Dr. Jessica understands seeking mental health support can be a scary experience. She offers a non-judgmental, supportive, and safe setting for clients and an individualized treatment approach. No one should have to live with frequently feeling overwhelmed by life's stressors, their thoughts, or their feelings. Dr. Jessica works with clients to help them better understand the nature of their difficulties and identify personal areas of strength that can be used to form more adaptive coping skills so they can reach their goals and feel content with themselves and their daily lives. In addition to individual therapy services, Dr. Jessica frequently works with parents of children with mental health, behavioral, and developmental difficulties to help provide them with the education and support they need to in-tern provide their children with optimal support.

Dr. Jessica was an NCAA III Track & Field athlete followed by 13 years competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and currently teaching ladies classes. Dr. Jessica's athletic and coaching experiences in addition to her psychological training make her an excellent fit for many athletes working to overcome performance anxiety and manage their mental health needs while being an athlete.

Message to clients

I understand from my own therapy experience how difficult it can be to take the first steps of scheduling an appointment and the vulnerability one feels as they first open up to a stranger about the difficulties they are having. My first priority in starting with new clients is to ensure they feel safe, heard, and unjudged in the therapeutic process. We will discuss what goals you have and how I can help to provide therapeutic support for relief from symptoms and improvement in daily functioning. As a seasoned provider of telehealth therapy services, I offer the convenience of remote sessions through a HIPPA compliant portal to help ease your ability to add therapy services to your life so you can begin to take better care of yourself.
