Jessica Downs, MSW, LSW
Jessica approaches her work with compassion and a sincere desire to understand her clients. She believes that life experiences shape the way we see and feel about ourselves, others, and the world. Trauma, or any disturbing event, can significantly distort these perceptions. This includes humiliation or betrayal; abuse; accidents; witnessing or experiencing natural disasters; or any other event that has been hurtful or disturbing, either from the distant or recent past.
When life experiences are harmful or traumatic, we can feel stuck, and unable to move on. This can be overwhelming and defeating, and can often lead to a sense of hopelessness and despair. Jessica can help you on the path to healing so that you can feel like a whole person again.
Jessica has received specialized training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, a proven approach to treating trauma and anxiety disorders. She has also spent several years working with teens as a high school and community college educator, and enjoys the creativity and emotional charge young women and young men bring to counseling. She also works with adults who suffer from trauma or the effects of disturbing life events.
In addition to her expertise in working with trauma, Jessica is trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, and helps couples work to restore love, trust, and connection in their most important relationships.
Some of Jessica’s counseling specialties include:
- Trauma Treatment & EMDR Counseling
- Anxiety Counseling
- Depression Counseling
- Individual Counseling
- Teens and Young Adults
Jessica sees clients at Colorado Counseling Center’s Centennial office.
