Jessica Wilson, B.S., is currently pursuing a Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Columbus State University. Although still fairly new to the program, Jessica is committed to acting as a source of solace and trust within the relationship establishes with her clients. She is invested in promoting cognitive, emotional, and social growth in her clients and looks forward to learning from them as much as they will learn from her.

Jessica has 6 years of experience working with a wide age range of children from her time as a nanny and preschool teacher. During her time as a teacher at The Goddard School, she learned to assess the emotional, cognitive, and social development of children and how to implement strategies to improve each. In her childcare experience, she has worked with children experiencing anxiety, adjustment disorders, and ADHD. Her graduate coursework has taught her effective crisis intervention strategies as well as different assessment tools to use during therapy. Working with children allowed her to realize that a lot of the issues a child experiences are often overlooked and misunderstood, which is why she is invested in acting as a voice and advocate for the needs of her clients.

Jessica looks forward to enrolling in an Education Specialist program for Professional Counseling as well as pursuing Registered Play Therapist certification upon completion of her degree. She is currently a member of the Licensed Professional Counselors Association of Georgia, the American Counseling Association, and Chi Sigma Iota.

Ms. Wilson works under the Direction & Supervision of E. Amanda Dellinger-Allen, LPC, CPCS, RPT/S, while at Thrive.
