Jessica earned a Master's degree in Clinical Social Work from NYU and has years of experience working with families and individuals. Jessica’s desire for helping others came from her experience as an interior designer spending many hours working with clients who would share the many challenges they were facing in their personal and professional lives: infertility, relationship issues, parenting struggles, depression, anxiety, loss and substance abuse issues. She felt honored that her clients shared their struggles with her, but also felt a great responsibility to be able to truly and adequately help them. This is when Jessica decided to switch careers and become a therapist with the goal in mind of helping “every day people” in her private practice live their best lives.
During graduate school she focused on working with those struggling with mental health and substance abuse at Summit Oaks Hospital – a psychiatric and substance abuse inpatient facility. She also worked with the same populations at Hoboken University Medical Center’s Outpatient Mental Health Clinic.
Since graduation she has worked as a medical social worker at Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen,NJ, and Jersey City Medical Center . She has worked in the field of hospice as a counselor for Grace Hospice in Edison, NJ and Renal Ventures of Clifton, NJ. In these positions she counseled families and individuals struggling with depression and anxiety surrounding new diagnosis and end of life issues.
At Jersey City Medical Center she counseled families and patients struggling through obstetrics and gynecological challenges: infertility, post partum depression and anxiety around being new parents. Additionally, she has worked in the community of Hudson County for Child and Family Solutions of Turnersville, NJ as an in home therapist.
Currently, Jessica is running a successful private practice in Hoboken while maintaining per diem status at Jersey City Medical Center and Summit Oaks Hospital. She is also a member of the Hoboken Chamber of Commerce, BNI Gold Coast and the National Association of Social Workers. Jessica truly enjoys helping the residents of Hoboken overcome the “every day challenges,” in their lives and believes her greatest reward is their happiness.

She was exhausted. She quietly stole a moment for herself as she rested her head on a throw pillow. She reminisced about the carefree and happy memory of picking out the pillow when they bought their first piece of furniture together, a year after they met. As she laid there she realized she was experiencing […]
Lilly slowly walked up the stairs and reached into the front pocket of her backpack for the house keys. She could hear the fighting between her parents from the landing of the stairs and thought “Will they ever stop?” She then became mad at herself for not staying longer at the playground with the rest […]
They had been dating for about two years. They met at a local friend’s Fourth of July back yard BBQ. They were the only ones whom the host did not know from work. Talk of programming and outsourcing left them on the sidelines truly positioned to seek comfort in the other. The past two years […]
