Jessica attended Belmont University graduating with a degree in Social Work (BSW). She went on to attend The University of Tennessee for her Masters of Science in Social Work (MSSW). Jessica continued her training and supervision to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). She is trained in a variety of evidence-based modalities: Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI); Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) – Levels 1 & 2; Theraplay – Levels 1 & 2; Circle of Security (COS); Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT); Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT); Attachment, Self-Regulation, and Competency (ARC); and Motivational Interviewing.
As a therapist, Jessica specializes in trauma and attachment issues but also provides therapy for children and teens who are experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, anger issues, family conflict, or are struggling with behavioral problems. She has over eight years of experience working with children and adolescents at both Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s Child and Adolescent Inpatient Unit and Catholic Charities of Tennessee. For the past several years, she has been working with children and teens adopted through the foster care system by helping them overcome the trauma/neglect of their past and connecting with their new forever families. Jessica believes that kids heal and grow through relationships, so she often incorporates family therapy into her sessions to help strengthen a child/teen’s sense of safety and connection to his/her parents. Building on this family systems approach, Jessica loves providing parent coaching to help parents identify emotional needs driving their children’s negative behaviors and help establish a plan for re-connection and correcting.
