About Jessica Brennan

Welcome! I take a personalized and holistic approach to psychotherapy with women. As both a licensed clinical psychologist and certified yoga teacher, I incorporate the needs of the mind, body and emotional self into treatment. I specialize in helping women build more positive relationships with their bodies, personal self-care and emotions. My therapeutic style includes a variety of effective treatment modalities, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I also incorporate mindfulness, compassion and problem-solving strategies. Throughout treatment, we work together to increase insight into problematic patterns and to establish more balanced coping strategies. I have experience treating eating disorders, anxiety, depression, feelings of being “stuck,” trauma, grief and relational issues. In therapy, I focus on more than just the challenges that you, the client, may face. I also emphasize your personal strengths and past successes to help you to create the life that you want. I will send you a confirmation email upon booking an appointment which outlines the office policies, office information, and an opportunity to verify your insurance prior to your session. *Please note the missed session policy. If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please cancel at least 24 hours prior to your appointment time to avoid the missed session fee.*
