About Me

My passion....What gives me meaning and purpose in life....Is to provide support to men and women who struggle with trauma. Trauma comes in all forms and affects us all differently. It makes it difficult to function effectively in everyday life. It tears relationships apart, leads us to abuse substances, affects sleep and our ability to work, and causes us to lose trust in the people and places we love the most. I have specialized training in EMDR, Cognitive-Behavioral, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and Dialectical Behavior modalities. I specialize in working with military veterans and first responders and their families, individuals with complex childhood trauma, and relationship issues that are a direct result of trauma. The couples counseling I provide is trauma-focused, designed to target codependency, commitment and attachment issues, narcissism, and inability to trust. I am currently fully licensed in the State of Texas as an LPC. I graduated at the top of my class with Master's degrees in both Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Addiction's Counseling, and am currently a member of Chi Sigma Iota Honor Society.

Reviews

Written by S.A. on Oct 20, 2021 after therapy with Jessica for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Jessica has helped my partner and I work towards better communication and respect. She listens to both of us equally and provides things to work on. She takes our problems seriously but is light-hearted and easy to get along with!
