About Me

Hi! My name is Jessica Busekist and I am a Mental Health Counselor in NY state. I have been providing therapy and support for over six years in a variety of settings and with a variety of people. I have spent many years both as a counselor and in other jobs working with youth.
I believe that it is important to meet people where they are at and allow you as the client to be in charge of your treatment. This can be especially important when working with teens, as sometimes they are uncomfortable or unsure about counseling. My goal is to help you determine what your needs are and what the best path is to achieving your goals and improving your life.
Whether you know exactly what you need (which don't worry, most people don't) and just need some help along the way; you are looking for skills to give your strength and courage; have deep hurts or traumas that you want to address; or you are just looking for a support to talk about ongoing concerns and stressors, I'm here to help.
I know that finding a good therapist that is the right fit for you is important, just like finding the right doctor. It's important that you take the time and feel that our counseling relationship is right for you. After all, your time is valuable and your mental health is important; and as a good provider I believe that you deserve the best treatment and I will do my best to provide that.

Jessica is a great listener. She has good insights, asks specific questions and makes helpful suggestions. Every time I speak to her I feel better and after only a few sessions I am already seeing improvements in my thinking. She is a great source of support. Thank you, Jessica!

Working with Jessica has been so helpful to me. This is my first experience with therapy and I was so nervous I wouldn’t know what to do or say, but she put me right at ease. Meeting with her has already helped me understand some of what’s actually going on in my brain, and how to take steps towards growth. She’s professional yet very comfortable to talk to, I’ve already recommended teen counseling to several people because I’m so thankful for this resource.

Work with me!
