Professional statement

Jessica Riocci, LMFT is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist offering virtual sessions for those residing in CT and NY. Jessica works with individuals, couples, and families. Many of Jessica’s clients initiate therapy when experiencing anxiety, depression, and significant life changes. Jessica often has clients that seek her out for a more holistic, somatic, and strength-based approach to their mental health care. Jessica is passionate about serving the perinatal population during the current maternal health crisis. Jessica has advanced training in the area of maternal mental health, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, and holistic postpartum care.

Jessica uses a systemic theoretical orientation and integrates experiential, mindfulness, cognitive, behavioral, and somatic interventions depending on the client’s needs. Jessica’s clients often leave therapy with new helpful perspectives, more self-awareness, action steps to help them achieve their goals, and more experience and skills in mindfulness, feeling safer in their body, processing and integrating painful experiences, and staying within their window of tolerance amidst a wider range of emotions.

Jessica’s style is warm, creative, and intuitive. When a client first comes in, the presenting problem, history, exceptions to the presenting problem, current supports, and goals for therapy are explored. Jessica is dedicated to providing a relationship that is collaborative and respects you as the authority and change-maker in your life.

Jessica received a Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fairfield University. Jessica gained experience at Coastal Connecticut Counseling, Southwest CT Mental Health Systems, and Discovery Behavioral which gave them valuable experience in working with children, families, adolescents, the mental health system at large, and significant anxiety and depression. Outside of private practice, Jessica enjoys spending time in nature and exploring other healing modalities and traditions from cultures across time and space.

Message to clients

I have deep admiration for anyone willing to try something new, take time to reflect, be vulnerable, face fears, look at themselves, see their role in a pattern or dynamic, and seek support whether for themselves or their family. When working with adults, we often work individually however, when clinically appropriate, other family members may join. When working with children and teens, family involvement is key for sustainable change. When a child or teen is the primary client, we would alternate between individual, family, and parent/caregiver-only sessions.
