About Dr. J

Hi, my name is Dr. Jessica M. Shine and affectionately called Dr. J by my amazing clients! I am caring and passionate about my purpose to help you heal past traumas and navigate through life’s difficult experiences and transitions. I love working with people from all walks of life and growing our therapeutic relationship in a non-judgmental, safe, and supportive environment. I strive to provide you with the necessary tools for your growth and success as your therapist, accountability partner, shoulder to cry on, and cheerleader! I’m here to connect the dots and help you understand how your childhood, family dynamics, intimate relationships, life experiences, and trauma all factor in the life decisions you make.

During our time together, I will utilize client-centered therapy with an eclectic approach by combining Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Psychodynamic, to name a few. In using these approaches, we will collaborate to discover the negative behavioral patterns and or thought processes that have kept you in a stuck place and prevented you from leveling up.

When working with clients, I find myself helping clients that tackle issues such as trauma, familial dysfunction, anxiety, depression, life transitions, and intimate relationships. I am a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator. Prepare/Enrich is a wonderful relationship tool used for premarital and marriage counseling that allows you and your partner to complete a thorough assessment, providing a personalized snapshot of your relationship and guiding our therapy sessions. Additionally, I hold level 1 and level 2 training of Gottman Methods Couple Therapy. This therapy is designed to equip therapists with specialized knowledge and skills in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy. I also have extensive training and certification in Prolonged Exposure Therapy, one of the most highly effective treatments for people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among many other mental health needs.

I’d love the opportunity to meet you and help you blossom into the person you desire to be. If you’re looking for an authentic, down-to-earth therapist who is ambitious, passionate, caring, and intentional about your healing, you found her!

I look forward to hearing from you, contact me for your journey to wellness.
