Description

Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 13 years of experience with children and families. I provide comprehensive assessments and evidenced-based treatment to families who have been impacted by adverse traumatic experiences, are struggling with their young child’s behavior, or are looking for support with adoption related concerns. I have a special interest in supporting BIPOC children and teens who are struggling with issues pertaining to race, discrimination, and identity. Trained in

*Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
* Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), & Racial Trauma Adaptation
* Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
* Attachment, Regulation, and Competency Framework (ARC).
* The Resource Parenting Curriculum

Jessica believes every family wants the best for their children but may need additional tools to the navigate the challenges presented by intergenerational and/or developmental trauma, adverse childhood experiences, racial identity development, or neurodiversity. I use a family-centered approach to restore healthy parent-child attachments and strengthens parenting strategies to ensure children’s underlying needs are met, while focusing on minimizing maladaptive behaviors. In adolescents and young adults, I explore the role of trauma and identity development on the child’s sense of competency in the world, and work to build a foundation to help every child feel safe, capable, and loveable.

I also provides clinical supervision to master’s level clinicians, have experience in public speaking, and am trained to facilitate family groups focused on Adoption, parenting a child in care (the Resource Parenting Curriculum), and Healing Identity through Anti-Racist Communities.
