About Me

Hi! I am a licensed clinical social worker in Indiana with over 10 years of experience. Most of my work has been in the school setting helping kids reach their full potential. I have worked with children struggling with a wide range of challenges including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, bullying, self esteem, self harm, trauma, anger management, conflict and social struggles. I have mostly worked in schools, but also have experience doing outpatient treatment. I am currently a School Social Worker serving kiddos in grades preK to 8th and have been serving kids and families at my school for 8 years.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is meeting clients where they are at so we can work together on creating realistic goals. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your child's unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by M.E. on Mar 28, 2021 after counseling with Jessica for 2 months

Jessica does a beautiful job with my teen daughter. She keeps in communication with me as the parent to make sure we are progressing in the right direction. I can’t thank her enough for all she has done for my family.

I have been in counseling before and Jessica has been the only one who understands how I’m feeling and she is very relaxed and laid back. I don’t feel pressured at all to tell her everything.

Jessica just gets it, and is very supportive.
