I believe relationships are the primary vehicle life gives us for personal growth and development. This process can be challenging, as we fall in love with, and attach to, someone who begins to trigger long-held insecurities, fears, traumas, or pain from our past. Many think this means we are not compatible with one another, but I believe if two people are willing to actively engage in this reality of relationships, become mindful of the process each person is experiencing in the relationship, and engage in personal growth, relationships are not only reparable, they become deeply meaningful, intimate, and securely attached.
My approach to couple's counseling utilizes Emotionally Focused Therapy, (the most evidence-based approach for healing attachment in relationships), as a way to help each person in the partnership engage in their own growth and evolution within the relationship, as well as their partner's.
Not every relationship can be saved, and many people discover it may be time to let go of an attachment that no longer feels safe, nurturing, or secure. However, whether it is letting go, repairing, or strengthening a relationship, the process can be much healthier when done in the safe and therapeutic space of couple's counseling.
I look forward to supporting you and your partner as you move forward from the challenges you face today.

Jessica is amazing. She is insightful, kind, gentle, yet firm.
Jessica has really helped us to work through some very difficult times after living through two category 5 hurricanes last year with two small children in our household. She has done an excellent job of helping us to identify our own attachment fears and giving us guidance on how to navigate some incredibly trying situations.
We would probably be divorced without Jessica’s help. She listens and directs in a compassionate and caring way. She didn’t choose sided and gave us both the support we needed. Jessica is wonderful!
I felt like I knew Jessica from a while back. She made opening up to her so easy. She understood me more than I think I do. Thank you.
She is doing a wonderful job. This makes talking about our problems so much easier with a mediator.
The situations that we have been experiencing as a couple were beyond imaginable with so many complications coming at us from every angle. We knew what our problems were since we sat down many times and discussed it but we needed someone to help us learn to work on them and not just keep repeating them over and over. We are currently still in couples counseling as of now. And Jessica has been extremely helpful so far :)
