Hello! I’m Jessica.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #108042

I joined Chico Creek Counseling in September of 2019 and am excited to partner with individuals, families, and couples on their journey to self-discovery, healing, and developing meaningful connections.

When working with my clients, I utilize various techniques and interventions rooted in Client-Centered approaches, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. I value assisting clients’ in discovering and identifying their needs and goals in order to tailor a therapy process that supports and assists in their journey.

I am from Southern California and have lived in Chico for the past four years. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles. I earned my Master’s degree in Counseling from California State University, Fullerton. I am currently licensed as a Marriage Family Therapist.

My Approach & Values

I have experience helping clients navigate the challenges of depression, anxiety, anger management, trauma, life transitions, and grief and loss.

Before Chico Creek Counseling, I worked in school-based counseling for six years. There, I helped children and teens identify goals, develop coping skills, manage behavioral issues, and collaborate with parents and guardians to maintain progress at home and at school.

I spent two years working with children with autism and their families, using ABA Therapy (Applied Behavior Analysis) to identify and develop ways to cope with harmful behaviors, increase communication skills, and navigate social relationships.
