About Jessica

Licensed Psychotherapist and Energy Healer

Located in Palm Beach County, Florida, I work with people—either in person, or by phone or Skype—who want to understand themselves, their relationships, and the lives they have created in a new way.

I listen and ask questions that your friends and family members wouldn’t ask.



My orientation is primarily psychodynamic, which means I will be curious about your early life and how your patterns of thinking and feeling initially came to be. The coping mechanisms implemented by a toddler or young child are often brilliant and effective, but as adults, we should probably update them. I am trained in a variety of body-centered modalities, which can help you access the innate wisdom of your body. I am certified in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and frequently use mindfulness based techniques to address psychological concerns such as anxiety and depression.

I earned my MA in Counseling Psychology from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. My undergraduate work took place at Haverford College, Haverford, PA, and I was also a visiting undergraduate at Harvard University, Cambridge MA. I have been a licensed psychotherapist in Florida since 2006.

Energy Healing

My training in energy work includes seven years of study and three years of teaching at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, certification as a Reiki Master, training in hypnotherapy, regression therapy, and DNA activation techniques.

I work with the energy consciousness system which includes the physical body, the chakras and various levels of the auric field, the dimension of hara, and the core star dimension.

In a healing session, we may explore areas that influence your state of well-being, such as your health history, life stressors, belief systems, your family and childhood history, and relationships.

Even in darkness it is possible to create light.

– Elie Wiesel
As a fan of conventional education and well-respected institutions, I had my judgments about “flaky” or unproven alternative practices. But in working with a Brennan healer during graduate school and personally experiencing relief of symptoms of hypoglycemia through this work, I became intrigued by this modality.
