 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 18 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 18 years in various positions.  I began my private practice in 2012, and this has proven to be the most rewarding challenge I have encountered in my life thus far.  

My Approach
I employ an eclectic holistic approach in my practice. My focus is on  bringing about harmony from within. The importance of self care and understanding cannot be stressed enough.  My goal is to assist you in listening to your inner voice to help bring about growth.  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.
