Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Jessica O’Connor is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who works primarily with school aged children, adolescents, young adults, and their parents and families. Using a strength-based, solution focused approach she works on problems occurring both in school and at home. Working together with her clients she helps them to find and accomplish solutions to a wide range of problems and concerns. When you check in with your child at the end of their school day do you hear things that have you concerned? Has your child told you they are being bullied? Have their grades dropped or did a parent teacher conference not go so well? Or does your child not want to go to school at all? Unfortunately, problems at school are all too common and our children are suffering from their effects. In therapy we can work on the specific areas of concern your child is facing at school and teach them tools that they can apply in their everyday lives. It is hard to focus on academics when other things are weighing on your child’s mind. At home, has there been a life change, new addition, or loss? Is it hard for everyone to get along? When was the last time things at home were peaceful? Family therapy can be a good option when things seem to have gone off course. Parenting and guardianship can come with challenges all on their own. Jessica offers a 2 hour private parenting session that coaches parents and guardians on how to communicate with their children, use effective discipline, strengthen the parent-child relationship, tips for increasing quality family time, and more. Sometimes things in life do not go according to plan. Jessica has experience in helping clients of all ages navigate through personal issues that come up and interfere with everyday living. When we try to make positive changes or battle the challenges presented to us sometimes having a neutral, understanding, and open minded person to talk to can make all the difference.
