Hello! My name is Jessica.
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #111115
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor #8276
I am the owner of Wellness with Jessica. I am a proud daughter of Hispanic immigrants, therefore a first-generation immigrant and first-generation college graduate. I am a bilingual (Spanish/English) dually licensed therapist in the state of California. I am also a God-fearing-traveling-nature-and-coffee lover!
I have been working with children and families for about 18 years in different capacities. I began my journey as a mental health provider in 2015. I have provided a number of specialized therapeutic services to those dealing with challenging life experiences (i.e. depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions, and crisis intervention). Individual well-being is my number one priority! I go above and beyond to help individuals through life challenges. If you would like more information about my services, please get in touch.
I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to the teachers, mentors, professors, coaches, colleagues, clients, friends, and family for planting a seed somewhere for it to grow, to make me who I am today.
"For I know the plans I have for you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
I cannot express how grateful and honored I am for my experiences (the pleasant and not so pleasant) because they have shaped the way I think and what I believe. I've learned about compassion, empathy, second chances, perseverance, resiliency, and the believe that people can change- if they want to, when they are ready.
I am grateful for my faith, therefore thankful to God for holding my worries and doubts when they've felt all too much. Giving me wisdom, desire, and words to be there for those who are hurting/struggling.
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
2 Timothy 1:7
