As someone who has embarked on her own counseling experiences, both in times of peace and chaos, Jessica understands the internal battle when beginning therapy. Aware of the courage it takes to start the process, she strives to provide a safe place where the counseling journey can evolve at the pace that feels natural for you. She takes a relational approach to therapy and believes that freedom and healing can come as light is shown on your story. From experience as a former high school teacher and work in international adoption and refugee/immigration resettlement, Jessica is passionate about serving both youth and adults seeking healing and direction.

Jessica received her Master’s degree in social work from the University of Central Florida and holds certification from Texas Christian University in Trust-Based Relational Intervention. As a bilingual (English/Spanish) therapist, Jessica embraces several modalities towards healing the whole person which include psychoeducation, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and client centered, solution focused approaches, with an emphasis on play and art therapy.
