“Feel the Fear and DO it anyway.” (Susan Jeffers). One of the first emotions a client feels about attending therapy is usually fear. It is quite normal to have such a feeling. This is a non-judgment zone and a place where one can feel “safe.” Jessica works with all ages, particularly adolescents with the use of solution-focused therapy, person centered therapy and positive psychology approach to treatment, to name a few. Additionally, Jessica comes from a diverse background and has experience within a multicultural society in which she has a deeper understanding of cultures and respect for cultural competence.

Jessica graduated from New Jersey City University with a Master’s in Counseling with School Counseling Certification in December, 2010.
