 Listening to others and helping them to heal is one of  my greatest joys. I strongly believe that achieving inner calmness, understanding and acceptance are all ways in which we can improve the quality of our lives.

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.
