Emergency Behavioral Health
I believe person-centered, relational care is essential for positive outcomes in a patient's health.

Approach To Care

Jessica (she/her) has worked in community mental health and managed care settings for more than 10 years. She uses evidence-based interventions such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Solution-Focused Therapy in her work with patients. Jessica takes a whole person approach to identify each person’s strengths, available supports and resources and creative solutions to presenting concerns. She believes that building trust and establishing a therapeutic alliance are essential to the recovery process, building an environment where each person feels like they can provide crucial input and direct their own care.
