Professional statement

Jessica is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who graduated from the Catholic University of America in 2018. Previously, she was a teacher for over 18 years and has seen many different issues that affect both children and families, including; school issues, grief/ loss, domestic/ sexual abuse, homelessness, teen pregnancy, drug abuse, anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADHD, and various other traumas. Jessica came into the world of mental health with the goal of helping other’s work through their issues and achieve long-lasting success in overcoming life’s hurdles. She has experience in treating anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and trauma. Additionally, Jessica believes in treating the whole person and her philosophy lies in the concept that a person’s mind, body, and soul should be well- cared for. Furthermore, she believes that therapy is a team effort, and that the client plays an integral role in their own treatment. Jessica works with the client in order to create a safe and welcoming environment that will most benefit the client and their needs. She has experience working with CBT, Mindfulness, and TF-CBT therapies. Jessica believes that life’s struggles can be turned around into learning opportunities and that there is nothing that one cannot overcome and work through. In essence, out of adversity comes strength! She is a living, breathing example of this.

Jessica is seeing clients (young adolescents to adults) via telehealth only. She does not take insurance at this time, but is willing to work on a very generous sliding scale.


Message to clients

When I was 6 years old, I was diagnosed with Steven's Johnson Syndrome, an allergic reaction to something...in my case penicillin. I ran a fever of 105.4 that essentially caused my body to burn from the inside out, resulting in 3rd degree burns from my knees up, including all of her mucus membranes. After recovering from both my lungs and kidneys collapsing and being in a temporary coma, I was diagnosed as legally blind, mostly deaf in my right ear, and with lungs that have severe scar tissue resulting in a lifelong chronic cough. I use magnifiers and other low-vision aids to assist with reading.

I share this story to hopefully show just how strong and passionate I am at my core and how knowledgeable I am when it comes to helping clients move through their own issues. I know what it's like to have challenging obstacles and I know what it takes to overcome them. I'd love to share this with you.
