Professional statement

People that work with Jessica, struggle with self-doubt, a strong inner critic and feeling that worry, people pleasing and imposter syndrome are getting in the way of them living their lives to their greatest capacity. Jessica helps the people that she is working with to develop an ability to nurture themselves with compassion and to have more capacity to live in authentic connection to their strength and live with more joy. People that work with Jessica find they have a stronger sense of self, more fulfilling relationships and a greater capacity for being present amongst the fullness of life.

Jessica Dyer is a licensed clinical social worker and somatic experiencing practitioner based in Oakland, CA. Through somatic practices and attunement to the underlying unmet needs present in people's lives, Jessica partners with people to heal wounds that may have resulted from hurt in relationships and early on in life. Sometimes these wounds are difficult to name and feel hard to access but show up in feeling anxious, depressed and numb to life. Through the mind-body connection and healing unresolved patterns, Jessica helps people to bring more balance to their nervous systems, feel relief, connection to themselves and stronger abilities to set healthy boundaries.

Jessica is sensitive to the power in the transition to parenthood and has training in perinatal mental health and trauma. She is passionate about supporting people to feel empowered in the transition to becoming parents and nurturing themselves while they embrace caring for another. She finds this time in people's lives to have the potential to be transformative and deeply healing.

Message to clients

I deeply respect the therapeutic relationship and know how important it is to connect with your therapist. In my work, I honor where you are at in your healing journey and trust that if you choose to work with me, we will develop a strong alliance to work towards the goals you want to achieve whether that is to have stronger sense of self and boundaries, feeling more vitality and feeling more capacity for joy. Please feel free to reach out to see if I would be a good fit.

In my work, I bring an awareness of power and privilege of my own and others and the impacts that the oppressive systems we live in have in people's lives and that addressing the pain and harm caused by oppression is a part of therapeutic work. I provide an inclusive practice where all bodies are welcome. I am currently seeing people via telehealth all over CA and some limited in person in Oakland, CA.
