Jessica is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate in North Carolina. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and her Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, both from Liberty University.
Jessica began her counseling experience by providing intensive in home and crisis stabilization services, as well as occasional therapeutic day treatment services in schools. She then served as an outpatient clinician, both in home and office settings. Jessica has enjoyed working mainly with children, adolescents, and families. She has specific experience with family systems, trauma, and crisis, which she addresses through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, play therapy, and art therapy. Jessica also provides parenting support for families with children who have behavioral concerns, as well as individual therapy to young children.
One thing that Jessica is passionate about is helping clients enjoy therapy. It’s important to her to meet clients where they are by taking into consideration their interests and incorporating those into sessions. Jessica loves to be creative in sessions by using art or play when appropriate, especially with younger clients or family sessions. She has a broad range of experience helping clients with a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, PTSD, self-harm, oppositional defiance disorder, ADHD, and grief. Jessica encourages clients to examine how their culture, religion, family, trauma, and other important areas of life may have influenced their current experience.
When Jessica is not working, she spends her time with her husband and son, watching movies, having game nights, and attempting to relax by reading, making art, or working out.
