GET TO KNOW YOUR THERAPIST

Jessica (Michele) Flores LPC

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Licensed Creative Arts Therapist (LCAT), and a Registered Dance/Movement Therapist (R-DMT). I value the therapeutic relationship and will be a non-judgmental and compassionate witness as I get to know you as a person. Together, we can explore your day-to-day life, history, patterns of thoughts and behaviors, and relationship dynamics.

I use a variety of mental health methodologies to fit each person’s therapeutic intentions. I commonly draw on psychoeducation, mindfulness skills that foster awareness and curiosity, bottom-up approaches such as Internal Family Systems (IFS) and dance/movement therapy (DMT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to strengthen a values-based, authentic life.

​Collaboratively and compassionately, we can process, work on, and let go of low self-esteem, self-sabotaging thoughts, insecurities, anger, family conflict, life transitions, anxiety, feelings from the past, maladaptive patterns, and limiting beliefs, and instead feel a sense of autonomy in guiding your life. In working together, with some amount of kindness towards yourself, you can re-connect to trusting your inner wisdom, knowledge, and guidance to live a purposeful and fulfilled life. 

​Some of my favorite things are having work/life balance, reading while drinking a hot cup of tea, nature walks, and traveling. I have been an avid reader since I was 5 years old, my favorite tea is chai, and the next country I would love to visit is Thailand.
