Jessica Foley is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Waltham, MA specializing in women’s mental health. She sees women navigating life transitions, including pregnancy and postpartum, as well as anxiety, depression, and eating and body image. Her clientele includes college students, young professionals, moms, and women working in STEM-related fields.
Jessica has a wealth of experience working with women throughout the perinatal period, practicing part-time out of an OB-GYN office for added convenience and collaboration. She helps women develop a practical schedule and tap into local resources to balance newborn care with their own needs. A large component of Jessica's work is helping women redefine cultural narratives and their own expectations about what motherhood and being a woman should look like, gaining confidence in their unique voice and ambitions.
Jessica draws upon various therapeutic approaches to help her clients break down isolating barriers and build stronger connections to themselves and others. Jessica operates from a Health At Every Size model, coaching clients to listen to their natural eating instincts rather than external measures. She strives to create a safe and supportive environment for clients to share their most intimate stories, including around their bodies, relationship with food, and intrinsic sense of self-worth.
