I will take the time to get to know you, your interests, and what excites you. I like to incorporate mindfulness into sessions. Yoga is a big part of my life and has really helped me with my own anxiety. Outside of work, I like being active outdoors, whether it's doing yoga in my backyard, going for a walk, or spending time at the beach with a good book. That's how I practice self-care.

Get to know Jessica Young

I always knew I wanted to help other people. I wasn't exactly sure what that was going to look like, but I knew I had a passion for psychology. I wanted to connect my passion with helping others. That led me to pursue a master's degree and become a licensed therapist.

For me, it stems all the way back to college. In my undergrad program, I took an abnormal psychology course. When I heard about OCD and how it affects people's lives, I thought it sounded so debilitating and for some, it can feel hopeless. There's not necessarily a lot of treatment out there for OCD. So I wanted to be a source of hope for people with OCD, because you can have a successful life. This is something that doesn't have to control you and take over your life.

I have lots of experience with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship issues, and bipolar disorder. My background is largely in working with children and adolescents in a school setting. I connect really well with children, adolescents, and young adults.

My first big piece of advice is: don't be afraid to make yourself a priority. Don't judge yourself: Look at your behaviors and tendencies without judgment. Know that you're brave by making the first step in seeking treatment. My goal as a therapist is not to necessarily fix all your problems—I can't wave a magic wand and take them away—but to work together with you to build internal resources you can use to manage changes and challenges.

Voice that concern, and let's explore it together—why might you be fearful? We'll go from there.

Been with Jessica for almost a year now and she is amazing. She is extremely nice, patient and understanding without giving that reassurance that OCD loves. Super intelligent and knowledgeable and I am blessed that I got paired with her

Todays session was definitely more difficult because the ERP was anxiety inducing. However, Jessica walks me through it. I’m very comfortable around her and she makes ERP less of a hassle. Jessica is always on time and she is very attentive to my feelings.
