A Bit About Jessica...

Hi there! My name is Jessica Dougherty, LPCA (she/her), and I am excited to be a part of the Vancouver Counseling Solutions team! I earned a Master’s Degree in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling from The University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley, and I will be providing services to those in the state of Oregon.

 

I have a background in working with young children, adolescents, young adults, and adults. My primary focuses are treating anxiety, depression, sexual/physical/emotional abuse, interpersonal conflict and relationships, family conflict, self-esteem, stress, disability adjustments, life transitions, self-harm, self-identity, and behavioral concerns. Throughout our collaboration, the following modalities may be used: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Reality Therapy, Systemic Therapy, Existential and/or Play Therapy.

 

As a counselor, it is my top priority to provide you with the safe space you may need to speak your truths and share your thoughts and emotions. Counseling may seem intimidating, so my hope is to bring you a comforting experience and provide you the opportunity to progress and identify your resiliency throughout your life experiences. I look forward to meeting and sharing this new journey with you!
