Jessica Schiller, LADC​ (student intern)

A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day. A string of such moments can change the course of your life.” —Chris Germer

Jessica’s goal is to create a comfortable and safe space to partner, explore, celebrate, grow, and heal. She has a collaborative, compassionate approach that honors the experience and dignity of the individuals and families she works with. Jessica uses attachment and strength-based approaches. Services are individualized to best meet goals and can include mindfulness, DBT Skills, experiential, solution-focused, narrative, or family systems work. Jessica is particularly passionate about working with those seeking recovery from addiction, trauma, and shame, as well as those looking to improve the quality of their relationships. She is inspired by the courage of those seeking growth and support and brings hope, non-judgement, straightforwardness, and humor. 

Jessica has worked with substance use disorders, mental health, and trauma since 2007 as a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor. She is currently pursuing her master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. She has completed training in trauma responsive and gender responsive care, resilience training, DBT, and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
