JESSI COLLINS, LCSW-C
Jessi believes that clarifying a person's core values and developing psychological flexibility is key to increasing feelings of well-being and establishing healthy, committed behaviors. By fostering an empathetic and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship, Jessi works with clients to develop and achieve meaningful personal goals. Since 2009, she has provided psychotherapy to young adults, adults, seniors. Jessi utilizes concepts from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing and Solution-Focused treatment to help clients get "unstuck." She has clinical experience treating depression, anxiety, bipolar and mood disorders, anger management, grief/loss, family relationship conflicts, stress management, increasing self-compassion and self-worth, improving personal boundaries, and managing expectations. Jessi has worked extensively with individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia and psychotic disorders, individuals affected by intimate partner violence, individuals with legal/criminal backgrounds, and adults with chronic medical issues.
Jessi also serves as a clinical supervisor for part-time clinicians at Baltimore Washington Counseling Center and has been providing clinical supervision to graduate-licensed therapists since 2014.
