Hi there, I'm Jessica!

Hi! I am Jessica Ayala, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Certified Employee Assistance Professional (CEAP). I focus on holistic well-being and believe in the importance of addressing personal and vocational aspects of life. I excel at providing practical guidance and support to individuals, and my extensive experience in case management equips me with valuable skills in coordinating resources and advocating for clients' needs. I believe that seeking help is a sign of strength and self-care.

My approach

As an LCSW, I hold a deep understanding of human behavior and mental health, enabling me to provide empathetic and evidence-based therapeutic interventions. I have a comprehensive grasp of various therapeutic modalities and tailor my approach to meet the unique needs of each client. My therapeutic toolkit includes cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, mindfulness-based interventions, and psychodynamic and Humanistic approaches.

My focus

With over 17 years of dedicated practice, I have become a trusted ally for adult individuals seeking support during phases of life transitions, grief and loss, anxiety, situational depression, postpartum depression, women's issues, case management, recent medical diagnosis, conflict resolution, and career/vocational stress.

My communication style

With a warm, safe, and empathetic approach to clients, I create a compassionate and nonjudgmental space where clients can openly explore their thoughts and emotions, fostering a strong therapeutic alliance.

My journey to mental healthcare

After the loss of a family member, I found support through an MSW program. This transformative experience ignited a passion in me to help others overcome obstacles and receive the support they deserve, emphasizing the belief that we cannot navigate life's challenges alone. With a profound understanding of the power of professional guidance and the healing potential of care, I have devoted my career to assisting individuals in moving forward and overcoming personal hurdles. This is what drives me to this work, as I have witnessed firsthand the transformative impact that therapy can have on individuals' lives.

My goals for you

I strive to empower individuals to overcome obstacles, find meaning, and achieve their goals. My dedication, professionalism, and unwavering support make me a valuable partner in the journey toward emotional well-being and personal fulfillment.

My first session with you

During the initial meeting, clients can expect a collaborative and supportive environment aimed at understanding their unique needs and goals for support.
