My name is Jessica W Bonds and I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 16 years of experience. I earned my BSW from California State University Long Beach in 1999 and an advanced standing MSW from New York University in 2000. I also completed both an Advanced Practice Certificate in Individual Clinical Practice with Adults and Adolescents at New York University in 2006.
I have been a practicing social worker for the last 16 years in various positions. I began my private practice four years ago and this has proven to be the most rewarding challenge I have encountered in my life thus far. My focus is on stress, anxiety and anger management, self acceptance, trauma relief and achieving a balance in life. My experience includes working with anxiety, depression, stress related disorders and self-acceptance. In addition, I have experience with working with different cultural backgrounds, ages and genders. I employ multiple approaches tailored to each individual's needs.
I am able to work with
organizations providing services to assist in decreasing problematic behaviors
and emotions while enhancing productivity and performance. I have provided
workshops to promote self-care, stress management and healing using meditation, activities and sound healing.
I provide reiki, sound healing and hypnotherapy services in both an individual and group setting.
In addition to therapeutic services, I have provided assessments for a variety of needs including:
~ Psychosocial assessments to establish hardship for the purpose of immigration
~Home studies for adoption.
