Professional statement

Jessica Foley is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Waltham, MA specializing in women’s mental health. In addition to her practice in Massachusetts, she also sees clients based in California, Florida, Connecticut, and Arizona for online therapy appointments.

Jessica 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. 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.

Message to clients

It can be tough to start counseling; telling your story to someone new. It's a brave thing to seek help when life feels out of control, and you should feel proud of your choice to make a change.
I have special expertise in treating many women's issues - everything from emotional pain stemming from reproductive health challenges to dealing with infidelity in a relationship. As a woman, I understand how life can affect us differently. Problems like unplanned pregnancies, chronic illnesses, overwhelming anxiety, eating issues, postpartum mood issues - it's stuff like this that can really have an impact on how you feel.
It can be difficult to talk about the problems that are keeping us up at night, but counseling is one place where it’s ok to say anything, and to truly be heard and helped. In goal oriented psychotherapy, we will use the power of your narrative to show the way to a more connected life. You will experience a safe, empathic environment to share, learn and grow through our work together. Healing through making changes in your life isn’t always easy, but therapy can be a supportive place to start! You are the expert of you, and I want to help you use your intuition to be the best badass 'you' you can be. I look forward to embarking on this journey with you.
