Great to meet you!

Welcome! I’m Jessica Rodriguez, LCSW, and founder of Fresh Start/Nuevo Comienzo. I am a dedicated and empathic licensed clinical social worker with over 15 years experience in providing therapy and support to adults seeking to improve their mental health, behavioral health, and overall well-being. I have also provided clinical supervision to other therapists. I currently provide telehealth services in English and Spanish.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I use a client-centered approach in which your unique needs and goals guide the work. I use evidence-based practices and psychodynamic therapy that is inclusive of the mind-body connection and individual characteristics, experience, and preference. I have extensive experience working with individuals facing a wide range of challenges, including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, stress management, self-esteem, and other concerns.

What you can expect from our first session

Often times we start to notice differences in our emotions or behaviors or others can notice differences and let us know. We may notice day-to-day task completion becoming more difficult. We all have ups and downs and challenges, but if things are becoming more difficult, it may be the time to reach out. No judgments, just a safe space. Take care.
