Her practice is rooted in attachment based work. In a general sense, this means her work is lensed through an awareness that our interpersonal relationships (particularly our early ones) and experiences can shape how we move through our lives and how we function in current relationships. This also means that an authentic connection and collaboration is part of the treatment. There is a healing power in developing healthy and secure relationships. Holding a safe, empowering, nurturing, contained space within the therapeutic relationship is at the foundation of her practice.
She believes that cultural, ethnic, immigration history and spiritual background (or lack thereof) should be honored in the therapeutic process. Jessica identifies as an ally to the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities.
