Jessica Branch, LCPC, Bilingual Counselor (Spanish) - Offering individual and family counseling & meditation workshops
Welcome!
 
If you are looking for a collaborative and kind counselor to consult with about a problem that has either come into your life recently, or a problem that has been around for a long time, you have found the right person.  My goal as a counselor is to provide you with a safe and respectful environment where you can talk through what is causing you difficulties in your life. Then, we will collaboratively work to reduce the effects of the problem(s), so that you will become more able to live your life the way you want!
 
My specialty is working individually with adolescents and adults, with family sessions as needed.  I also enjoy working systemically with families by including the whole family in continuous sessions.  I provide individual and family therapy services in both English and Spanish.  I have helped many adults, adolescents, and families to cope with a variety of problems, such as anxiety, stress, depression, grief, divorce, addictive behaviors, self-harming behaviors, relationship difficulties, and family challenges.
 
If problems are making your life, or the life of a loved one, complicated or difficult, please give me a call.  We will set up an appointment to discuss your current concerns and for you to experience how I can support you.  If it feels like a good fit, we will set up regular sessions, typically weekly, until the problem is no longer causing concerns.
