More about me

Licensing: LCSW, LCSW-C
Years in Practice: 5
State: MD

Hello and Welcome! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in New Jersey as well as Licensed Certified Social Worker-Clinical (LCSW-C) in Maryland. I received my Bachelor's degree in social work from The University of Georgia and my Master's in social work from The University of Maryland- Baltimore.

My counseling approach is individualized to each client based on their needs, life circumstances, and strengths. I utilize a variety of treatment modalities including but not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused therapy, and positive psychology. I have worked with people who have and/or are experiencing depression, anxiety, domestic violence, sexual assault, grief, life transitions/changes, college/work/parenting stress, and survivors of childhood sexual abuse. No matter what you are seeking therapy for, I hope that you will find me warm yet gently assertive in holding you accountable to help you reach the treatment goals that we will come up with together.

I look forward to working with you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I am very pleased with my time with Jessica. She has been quite helpful in assisting me as I deal with various issues. She prescribes various methodologies that force me to better understand and accept my situation. We have worked through numerous worksheets which have been helpful to me in creating habits to reduce and minimize the tendencies I have to worry and stress. Jessica is resourceful, patient, and understands my situation and how to help remedy. Her feedback is candid, and she increasingly has challenged me to meet my goals and deal with my situation. I would recommend her to most anyone in my type of situation.

Jessica continues to do an excellent job of providing tools which, when used consistently, provide guidance and direction in dealing with issues I have (anxiety, stress, a feeling of not being able to control things, etc.). I have learned a great deal in working with Jessica. I am increasingly better at recognizing situations and dealing with them. Jessica is patient, and she listens to the issues, and responds accordingly. I have asked Jessica to hold me more accountable, where possible, to reaching my goals. We have recently revisited my original goals and are tweaking them to ensure progress in the weeks ahead. I appreciate Jessica's demeanor and her desire to understand the issues before prematurely coming up with an "answer". Jessica has been of great help to me. She has done a good job of retaining a great deal of background information that resurfaces over time, which Jessica is able to tie together.

Jessica has worked hard to understand the myriad of emotions, issues, thoughts, challenges and aspirations I have. She listens very well, is patient and responds in kind with various ideas, forms, homework, all of which have, over time, helped my situation. Although there was, in the very beginning, concern that Jessica was not "seasoned" enough (based on perceived age difference), Jessica has demonstrated great capability, and has been able to respond to every issue raised, regardless of age. Jessica I think has been very good about bringing up things I have mentioned previously -- it is sometimes a fact raised or a discussion that took place between us months ago; but Jessica remembers and either draws back to, or applies these past lessons/conversations to what is taking place now. She does a good job of bringing up past tools, to reinforce their importance to learn (e.g., tools to instill mindfulness). Jessica is a very positive person which is very helpful; and yet Jessica freely discusses feelings that run the spectrum of emotion. And she takes the approach that all of us, in our own way, "feel this way" sometimes. I am very pleased with Jessica's approach and what we have accomplished so far. I know I have to do more of the "heavy lifting" when it comes to better dealing with my issues and challenges; but Jessica is there to provide the tools, guidance, and support needed. I appreciate her efforts and insights. I like her style of listening and suggesting as a colleague, rather than dictating solutions because she knows better. I am very pleased with Jessica’s performance and appreciate her efforts to help me.
