Be at least as interested in what goes on inside you as what happens outside. If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place.

About Jessica

I believe in the power of psychotherapy to transform lives.  I continue to expand and challenge my own mind, body and spirit through my personal work, play and exploration and I consider this vital to my ability to work effectively with others in a healing capacity.  Like many of my clients, I'm a working mother, finding my way as I go, struggling and cherishing, triumphing and feeling overwhelmed at times.  In my past lives I've been an artist -- a singer and songwriter, and I've been a bookkeeper.  I consider myself very fortunate to now be able to work in a field that I love and feel passionate about, where I can blend my artistry with my analytical mind - and I find that both are useful and necessary for healing.  Areas of particular interest and ongoing study include Internal Family Systems, meditation and mindfulness, neuroscience, creative expression, spirituality, pregnancy, postpartum adjusting and parenthood - as well as all of the relational and attachment struggles that emerge between people who matter to each other.  I work with individuals and couples in my practice and I facilitate support groups for moms (Adjusting to Motherhood and Mindfulness for Moms) and for people in the birthing field.  I'm in a private practice with other therapists who also specialize in maternal mental health in Los Gatos, CA.  I specialize in the following:

  • prenatal and postpartum transitions
  • parenting
  • marital challenges (including separation and divorce)
  • depression (lack of joy and energy in the self)
  • anxiety (inhibition and fear that keeps you from reaching your potential and from being who you really are)
  • attachment and relational struggles (failure to connect with others, destructive, painful "love")
  • highly sensitive parents & infants
  • supporting doulas and midwives in their work

I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of California at Los Angeles in 1996 and a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University in 2009.   I
am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFC 53881)
