About: Jessica's strengths-based approach is firmly grounded in the concept of integrative mental health, which is a holistic means of treating individuals so they can "grow to greatness" and create a vision for their lives that is more than they thought was attainable. It combines a conventional medical model with aspects of neuroscience, nutrition, exercise, and spirituality. Jessica's goals as a therapist are to help her clients heal from the pain of their past, gain skills and knowledge to make positive choices, and ultimately lead transformed lives.
Jessica also had the unique opportunity to gain a real understanding of the negative effects traumatic experiences can have which led her to pursue specialized training in trauma treatment. She strives to create a safe and welcoming environment where people can heal and grow. Stressors both large and small may pose challenges to daily living and having a strategy to handle those experiences can often be the freedom a person wants and needs.
Jessica earned her B.S. degree from York College and her M.S. degree from Western Maryland College. She also has a Certificate of Advanced Trauma Treatment from the University of Maryland School of Social Work. She has been an active member of LifePoint Church for 14 years.
