About Me

My name is Jessica Szymczyk (pronounced sim-zick). I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 20 years of experience working with families, individuals and couples. I identify with the LGBTQ+ Community and spent several years working with individuals who are living with HIV. I especially love working with adolescents and emerging adults as this is such an important time in an individual’s life. I practice Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as my primary intervention. This type of therapy helps an individual to develop a healthy and functional relationship with their emotional experience. I also utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as my foundation. I believe that all individuals possess the skills they need to be their best selves and my job as a therapist is to connect you to your inner wisdom so that you can achieve your goals. My style is very conversational, and for your first visit, you are encouraged to “interview” me so that you can decide if you think we will work well together. If you have hesitated to try therapy in the past, I would love the opportunity to dispel any reservations and show you how therapy can help you discover your best self and live your life to the fullest.

Education & Experience

I earned my Master's Degree from Rollins College in 2002. I have worked in community health agencies for over 20 years. Most of my clients have experienced trauma, both "big T and little t" trauma.
