Jessica completed both her undergraduate B.S. in Psychology, and M.S. in Mental Health Counseling at SUNY OSWEGO. She was a slightly older, nontraditional student with a young son during this time, and has been practicing in the counseling field since 2015. Much of her experience has been working with clients who are faced with challenges such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, life transitions, and parenting.

Jessica feels that having a sense of humor in addition to other healthy coping skills is highly beneficial for our overall state of mind. She provides a non-judgemental approach, and enjoys utilizing such therapy techniques as CBT, providing encouragement, and helping clients to gain self awareness. Jessica encourages self care in various forms, assigns tasks for clients to engage in between sessions and assists them in helping themselves. She believes in the tremendous value of nonverbal communication during sessions, and finds that discussing this with clients has been helpful in educating them regarding their triggers as well as various symptoms. Jessica truly believes that each individual has the skills and strengths to improve their overall well being, and assists with empowering them. Jessica has worked with many parents who are experiencing such concerns as lacking confidence, as well as guilt for various reasons. Parenting education has been beneficial in building awareness and confidence associated with the difficult yet rewarding task of successfully raising children. Jessica holds the opinion that there is always room to improve, grow and better oneself. Since working in the field of mental health, she has learned that many of her clients felt isolated with their concerns, as if they were the only one in society experiencing anxiety, depression etc. Jessica has also found that validating and normalizing the concerns of clients begins to improve their mental state and improve confidence.
