Silvana Jester, LCSW
It's not easy making that first phone call to speak to a therapist. In fact, it can be quite scary! I place a strong emphasis on authenticity and the client/therapist working relationship.
My ideal client population would be those who do not feel heard or understood by others. I believe that we all have a purpose in life, and sometimes we may need assistance locating it.
My primary interest areas include teenagers engaging in self harm, experiencing suicidal ideation, and trauma.
I enjoy using techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness.
