Jessica Morris is an Associate Professional Clinical Counselor. She received my Master of Science in Clinical Counseling from the Community-Based Block Program (CBB) Multicultural Counseling and Social Justice Education at San Diego State University. Her education in multi-cultural counseling and social justice means that she approaches each individual with empathy and awareness when it comes to navigating racial and gender identities, and life experiences. In addition, her background as an athletic coach and personal trainer means that she brings a knowledge of fitness and nutrition to her clients who are working toward weight-loss or simply a healthier relationship with their bodies and food. No matter what the issue is, she is passionate about helping those seeking change in their lives to achieve their goals.
Jessica’s primary focus is working with both adults and adolescents struggling with anxiety, self-esteem, relationship issues, weight and body image, disordered eating and addiction. She uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, and other tools to help clients overcome and move past behaviors that aren’t contributing to their personal growth and happiness. She helps clients to identify and achieve small-scale, doable goals which build a foundation for lasting change.
As someone who has struggled in the past with self-esteem and body image issues, Jessica knows firsthand the pressures individuals face to fit into a societally-approved mold. She also understands what it takes to find a healthier, more peaceful relationship with your body, food, and exercise, and is passionate about helping you do the same. Whether you are someone who struggles with weight and body image, self-esteem, anxiety, relationship issues or addiction, Jessica understand how complex and debilitating each of these can be. We each have our own story and challenges, making the recovery and healing process unique for each of us. She looks forward to walking this journey with you.
