Jessica McClellan, LCSW
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Illinois, with many differing experiences in the field of mental health and well-being. I have experience working with families, couples, and individuals between the ages of 5 and 90 years old. I have experience supporting my clients with concerns related to anxiety, depression, eating disorders, mood and personality disorders, and trauma-related disorders amongst other mental health conditions. Less specific to a diagnosis, I thoroughly enjoy supporting clients with life adjustments and desires for fulfillment and personal growth.
As a Certified First Responder Counselor, I am dedicated towards creating mental health resiliency within a safe environment so that First Responders, Veterans, Military, and their families can address the many issues that they face. I utilize techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy.
I enjoy getting to know each of my clients right where they are and helping determine the most effective route in treatment to help them meet their goals. I do utilize psychological testing that is within the scope of practice when needed or applicable.
My goal as a therapist is to ensure every client that suffers with mental health, PTSD, or day-to-day stressors receives top quality treatment without the fear of judgment or a lack of confidentiality.
