More about me

Licensing: LMFT
Years in Practice: 10
State: GA

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Georgia (LMFT) and I have been working in the counseling field since 2012. I have experience conducting individual and group therapy, in-office and online, with clients presenting with depression, anxiety, relationship and parenting issues, teen concerns, and a wide range of challenges including grief/loss, addiction, trauma, abuse, bipolar, as well as personal growth, adjustment issues, and crisis. For the past nine years I have worked within the Georgia prison system to provide counseling services to female offenders that have been placed in a treatment program to address mental illness and substance addiction.

My counseling style is empathetic, integrative, and person-centered. I believe that the therapy process should be collaborative to allow myself and the client(s) to work together to re-author perspectives and to discover solutions and insights that will help the client find new ways to thrive.

In my work with clients, I use some leading psychological modalities, such as Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Solution-Focused Therapy. I also utilize the Gottman Method, Motivational Interviewing, Strategic, and Trauma-Focused approaches. I am also a Certified Grief Specialist.

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.

Jessica provides support that I haven't been able to find elsewhere. She is attentive and hears me, rather than just listens to me. I'm so grateful for her.
