Education and Training
Jessica is Board Certified in neurofeedback by the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance. She has received extensive training in the theory and application of neurofeedback and QEEG from Brain Science International, EEG Spectrum International, Inc, The Learning Curve, Inc, the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, Biofeedback Training Institute, and the Behavioral Medicine Research Foundation.
In addition, Jessica has training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and has received specific EMDR supervision.
Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy (DNMS) is a therapeutic approach based on what is known about how a child’s brain develops within a healthy family. It was designed to treat present-day problems that originated with unmet childhood needs. It has also been used to resolve memories of painful physical, emotional, or sexual traumas.
Interpersonal neurobiology is an interdisciplinary field which incorporates knowledge from anthropology, biology, cognitive science, neuroscience, physics, psychology and systems theory (among other fields) to assist in understanding human experience.
Jessica works from a non-pathologizing wellness model and also pulls from postmodern theories of counseling, particularly narrative therapy. The general principles of this approach include viewing the client as the expert in his or her own life and not presuming that there is one ‘true’ reality.
