Jessica L Stewart
She/Her/HersPsychologist, PsyD Clinical Psychologist, CP Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Dr. Jessica Stewart is a clinical psychologist in Providence, Rhode Island, who specializes in working with adolescents, adults, and families struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma recovery, family disconnect and conflict, life challenges and changes, and identity development and appreciation.
Dr. Stewart has over 25 years of experience, working in a variety of settings with people of all ages, backgrounds, and presenting challenges. In addition to private practice, she has worked in private and public schools, outpatient clinics, inpatient and residential hospitals, and medical settings. She has presented nationally and is a published author on topics related to her expertise in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).
While CBT is her primary approach to therapy, Dr. Stewart incorporates aspects of mindfulness, dialectical behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, and positive psychology into her care for clients. She believes a therapeutic relationship is most effective when it focuses on identifying and incorporating the client’s strengths in order to expand their competencies, heal from hurts and trauma, and more confidently move in a consciously-chosen direction (not one that results from reactions to the challenges faced). In addition to counseling, Dr. Stewart conducts psychological and neuropsychological evaluations and supports teens and young adults in better understanding who they are as learners and building their competencies as doers.
Dr. Stewart grew up in Southeastern Massachusetts, studied psychology and philosophy in college in Kentucky, then moved to Pennsylvania for graduate school and the first 10 years of her career. She returned to the Massachusetts/Rhode Island area to raise her family closer to home. Dr. Stewart sees patients in person in her office on the East Side or via telehealth.
