Jessica

I deeply believe in each of our innate drives toward healing and wellness. At times we need support to find our way along this path; this is where therapy can be an essential tool. I employ a collaborative approach to support the development of curiosity and compassion for one’s whole self. In therapy we tune into the body’s wisdom, foster acceptance of ourselves in the present moment, and reshape narratives of our past.


I am a psychotherapist with nearly a decade of experience in the field. My background is in treating adult and child survivors of trauma, as well as those experiencing anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and distress related to life transitions.


In addition to my psychotherapy background, I draw from training as a yoga instructor at Abhyasa Yoga Center and in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction at Mindful Harlem to support those I work with in reconnecting with their bodies. I also integrate into my work Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a body-oriented talk therapy aimed at developing mindfulness of our somatic responses, building internal resources and processing traumatic memory.
