Therapy and Counseling
I came to Jess because I needed help overcoming my drinking habits, dealing with depression and focusing on my career. I have worked with other therapist in the past and have not gotten anywhere with them. With Jess, it was different. She helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel. We worked together closely on a weekly basis and as each day passed I got better and better. I am currently 192 days sober, have a good job at a CPA firm and feel 1 million times better.Oct 28, 2016Verified

Mental Health Counseling
Awesome! Great! Spectacular! A miracle worker! These are just a couple of words to describe Jessica. I contacted Jess through Thumbtack and within in the hour she responded to me. We had a 10 to15 minute free conversation via Skype and I knew instantly we were a match. Jess and I had weekly evening therapy sessions via Skype. It was great and easy. It is very rare in my experience that a professional is willing to work after 5:00 p.m. Jess had no problem doing therapy session with me at 7:00 p.m. or even a couple times at 9:00 p.m. When I think about it, it is hard to believe that she was my therapist and we never actually met in person. I guess the times are changing. Jess is a super-duper therapist. Hire Jess, but only if you are looking for a thoughtful and topnotch therapist that is going to give you the therapy you need to overcome your problems. Thank you! Love, JenOct 24, 2016Verified
Marriage and Relationship Counseling
Jessica is a great therapist.Nov 20, 2016Verified
Jessica was nothing short of fantastic. I sought out Jessica's services because my husband and I were fighting on a daily basis and just couldn't see eye to eye on many issues. All of our sessions were done via facetime (video conferencing), which made it extremely convenient for my husband and I. I never knew you could receive counseling via the internet. Wow it is great! From day one, we both felt very comfortable with Jessica. She was very easy to speak with and always told it to us the way it is. We loved her honesty and witty personality. We started off with one hour session once a week. We did this for about 12 weeks. At Jessica's recommendation, we slowed it down to one hour session every two weeks. Now, I am happy to say we only talk with Jessica once a month. Sometimes, every now and then I will sneak in an individual session as a little tune-up to help me with other issues not related to my marriage. I highly recommend Jessica to anyone looking for a therapist. If getting better or conquering your issues is your goal, Jessica is definitely the person to help you get there. Thank you Jessica. Mark and I can not thank you enough.Oct 20, 2016
License Type: Social Work (UT)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I traditionally start off with a free 10 to 25 minute phone call or video conferencing consultation whereby I introduce myself, obtain an understanding of the individual or families therapy goals, and explain my process and approach. This allows potential clients to “try before they buy” and experience the therapy process without any pressure or obligation. The free consultation allows the client and I to determine if we are a good fit
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Florida Atlantic University. I have worked as a Psychotherapist, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Counselor for the last 5 years. Over the course of my career I have treated/counseled hundreds of patients. A portion of my practice is dedicated towards treating clients dealing with marital or relationship issues related to conflict resolution, intimacy, cheating, trust parenting challenges, and self-reflection.

While at Renfrew I facilitated process, psycho-educational and topic groups for adolescent, adult and older adult females in a residential eating disorder treatment setting using multi-modal approaches: CT, CBT and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I provided one-to-one support, assisted in crisis situations using therapeutic skills and techniques and conducted assessments for safety based on needs of patients.

Additionally, I have worked with clients facing relationship challenges, parenting challenges, depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, PTSD, eating disorders, drug addictions, alcohol addition work-life balance issues, career decisions, empty-nest adjustments, and etc.
