Jessica currently works as a licensed professional counselor. She received her masters degree from Fairfield University in clinical mental health counseling. During her time at Fairfield University she was a member of Chi Sigma Iota Honor Society and completed her internships at Child and Family Guidance and the University of Bridgeport. Throughout her professional career she has worked with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, life transitions, substance abuse, trauma, mood disorders and occupational wellness. Although Jessica’s therapeutic approach is rooted within cognitive behavioral therapy, she is open to any therapeutic intervention that will best serve her clients. As an athlete and dancer, Jessica is also open to creative approaches involving art, movement, and exercise. She also enjoys working with athletes/performers as they work through issues involving performance anxiety and self-esteem. She firmly believes that creating a safe and comfortable environment for her clients will allow for deeper exploration and a willingness to be vulnerable. Coming from a large family and becoming a mother herself she is passionate about working with the perinatal/postpartum population as well as helping individuals work through familial conflict.
One of Jessica’s motivating factors behind becoming a therapist was her desire to help people feel less alone in their struggles. Life can feel extremely overwhelming and lonely but the power of the therapeutic relationship is something everyone deserves to experience.
