Life can be an amazing journey; and sometimes it seems unkind. Let us help you bring new life to your journey by seeing life through a different lens. A new lens (therapy) that allows you to no longer walk your journey in darkness but as you apply the light (therapy) your path becomes illuminated!
I have years of experience with the substance/drug abuse population; but am qualified to counsel various populations. I mostly use cognitive behavioral therapy as my model treatment but will often use a form of integrative therapy in blending specific types in an eclectic way that works best for the client. I also offer Christian-based counseling services for those in need.

Hello! I am Jessica Denton and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate who is very passionate about the field of Human Services, Counseling, and Mental Health.

I also received my Bachelor's of Arts in Human Services and Counseling from Lindsey Wilson College. I have experience working with a variety of individuals.
I like to take an approach to therapy that will fit the needs of the client, but I mainly focus on using CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy).
