Professional statement

Jessica Martin is a Mental Health Counselor in North Kingstown, Rhode Island with expertise in anxiety, trauma, sexual assault trauma, first responder mental health, mind-body wellness, and life transitions.

Jessica has significant experience working with survivors of trauma through her work at Day One Rhode Island Rape Crisis Center. She also has a unique specialty in working with first responders such as members of the police and military who often witness difficult crime scenes. She earned her BA degree in Criminal Justice and her past experience includes working with first responders through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Her practice is located in a beautiful area near the ocean, and she often incorporates the environment in her work with clients, such as by going on outdoor walks. In her private practice, she sees young adults, college students, adults, and couples, and offers flexible hours including early mornings and Sundays. Jessica has a dog, Ace, who often accompanies her at work.
