Professional statement

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who provides therapy and supervision via telehealth in RI and CT or in person in EG, RI. I have 10 years of experience supporting motivated individuals, couples, and families as they grow. I have worked in various clinical settings providing care to those with mental health stressors, unemployment, individuals and couples with different gender identities and sexual orientations, and for woman’s centers and adoption agencies coaching and educating parents with different family dynamics.

I help people who have experienced trauma or are struggling with anxiety to gain control of their symptoms and improve their quality of life by reflecting on how past events are effecting them and how to work through that. I am an LGBTQ+ ally who enjoys helping those who experience challenges with this part of their lives. I provide support to parents and couples at all parts of their journeys such as during or after pregnancy, blended families, adopting/fostering children, relationship conflicts, communication challenges, and setting boundaries with others. I value collaborating with individuals who would benefit from career counseling to find their purpose in a career they are passionate about, finding employment, or managing the stressors of college. I use an eclectic approach that stems from a strengths-based perspective to show that everyone is unique and resilient.

I know starting therapy can be challenging but I am here to support you in achieving the rewarding success you are looking for so please reach out if you are interested in beginning your mental health journey or want to connect for a free 15-minute consultation first. I also have 5 years of clinical, administrative, educational, and supportive supervisory experience and continue to enjoy providing supervision, including steps of private practice. You can reach me at 401.541.5886 or JessicaHarrisonCounseling AT g mail.
