When you meet Jessica, you’ll meet a genuinely kind therapist with concern for your issues. She’ll welcome you into a safe space where together you’ll discover your strength and patience to overcome the issues you’re dealing with.
Jessica is inspired by clients who face multiple barriers to wellness yet keep a stubborn desire to have a better life. She’s worked with a wide range of people to address many types of challenges, including depression, PTSD, relationship issues, family communication problems, dual diagnosis, physical chronic disease, trauma from abuse and sexual assault, and sexual offending histories. She’s an affirming and informed provider for people in kink, ethical non-monogamy, and LGBTQ+ lifestyles.
Jessica uses a variety of tools to customize treatment for each client, like practicing coping skills, communication exercises, trauma sensory integration, role-play, play therapy interventions, and developmental needs-meeting strategies. Her work is strongly influenced by attachment and developmental theories, trauma-informed care, and evidence-based practices. She draws from evidence-based therapies such as CBT, EMDR, DBT, and ERP, and theoretical therapies such as person-centered and psychodynamic.
With a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington, and a Master’s degree in Couple and Family Therapy from the University of Kentucky, Jessica has worked as a therapist in both private practice and community mental health settings. She believes that quality care should be available to everyone who wants to be happier and more fulfilled, regardless of background or history.
