I am so grateful to have been matched to Jessica as my BetterHelp therapist. Jessica has been helpful in my healing journey, always listening, validating, and helping me connect the dots and understand behavior patterns and the roots of my self-beliefs. Jessica was easy to talk to and share with, and I never felt judged by her. I always looked forward to our sessions. While my healing journey continues, I wouldn't be where I am today had it not been for Jessica's support. Thank you.

More about me
Years in Practice: 11
Welcome! Congratulations on taking this next step in your journey to becoming the best version of yourself. Starting therapy, whether you have never been in counseling before or are trying a new way to connect with a counselor, can be scary, and I hope learning more about me and how I approach counseling helps you feel more comfortable.
I am a 2008 graduate of the University of Maryland School of Social Work and I have been practicing clinical social work as a therapist in private practice for the past ten years. I have worked with people of all ages, experiencing a wide range of conditions, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and difficulty adjusting to life changes. I approach therapy from a holistic perspective, incorporating a number of theoretical perspectives, based on your needs. I draw from cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness, and other approaches.
Therapy is a collaborative process, starting with where you are, identifying your strengths and needs, and working together to set goals to help you get to where you want to be. I am non-judgmental, open, and committed to the core social work values: service, social justice, dignity and worth of the person, the importance of human relationships, integrity and competence. I hope that you will feel comfortable sharing your story with me, and that the therapeutic relationship we will build will help you feel welcomed, safe and understood.
*If you would like to work with me, please note that my availability for live sessions for new clients is currently limited to what is shown on my schedule.* If this does not match with your availability, please consider selecting a different counselor, as my availability is not likely to change in the near future. I wish you the best on your journey, and hope we have the opportunity to work together.
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.
