Hello, I'm Jessica and I am here to be a listening ear, a helpful guide, and a support. I am a licensed professional counselor who has worked in mental health related fields for 12 years, with four years specifically in mental health counseling. I have a Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling from Wayne State University and am also working towards my Ph.D. in counseling. I chose this profession from a profound desire to help and a strong belief that we all deserve help and healing.
Deciding to seek help is the first brave step towards wellness. Taking positive strides and making healthy changes is what I am here to help with. Developing a warm, inviting, trusting, and calm environment is what I strive to provide each and every session. For me, the most important aspect of therapy is developing a healthy therapeutic relationship where you feel safe to share your feelings, thoughts and experiences. I use an integrative treatment approach to fit you and your goals; however, I most frequently use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and client-centered techniques. I have experience helping adults of various backgrounds with a variety of presenting issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, and substance abuse. I am also fluent in Spanish and have experience in providing bilingual therapy.
My ultimate goal for my clients is to feel comfortable, empowered, and achieve positive change.
