Jessica Ferrol is a holistic mental health therapist and life coach located in South County, Rhode Island, who synthesizes eastern and western psychotherapy in her counseling services. Jessica specializes in helping clients navigate anxiety, depression, addiction, relationship concerns, body image issues and dysmorphia, and significant life transitions. She also has expertise in substance use disorders, and welcomes individuals who may be experiencing these difficulties at various stages.
In her practice, Jessica crafts unique treatment plans for clients based on an integrative perspective. She considers what a client's goals are in seeking counseling; how they can make changes in their daily living routine to reduce or alleviate both mental and physical imbalances; how they can reach optimal wellness in the mind and body; and ways they can create mental and physical resiliency via coping skills and self-care therapies.
Jessica has extensive experience in providing holistic health services, having worked in the field for over two decades. Throughout her years of private practice as an Ayurvedic practitioner, she has provided consultations to the community, created custom herbal formulations, and led workshops. This expertise influences her approach to treatment, which is rooted in the mind-body connection. Jessica is also a level 2 Hakomi practitioner and a certified yoga therapist.
Though Jessica's practice is physically located in Westerly, she is able to connect with clients across the state of Rhode Island through remote sessions. She looks forward to meeting you.
