Hi! My name is Jessica Van Cleave, I am a nationally board certified counselor and I am really glad you found me!
The most important factor for success in counseling is the relationship. I believe this comes from trust and authenticity. So I must confess, I am not a flawless perfect therapist that knows or can preach all of life’s answers to you…..but I genuinely care. I’ll listen and reflect, even the things that are difficult to talk about.
My approach is direct but kind; real yet hopeful. I gently push clients out of comfort zones while always remaining accepting and respectful. I use evidence-based counseling techniques (which just means science supports the stuff I use) including: Trauma-Focused CBT, EMDR, mindfulness, and humor.
I value trust, humor, vulnerability, and mutual comfort in the therapeutic relationship. If these are qualities you also value, connect today! Convenient and confidential counseling sessions are done with anyone in Michigan through secure video from the comfort of your home, car or any quiet space! All that is needed is reliable connection and private space. Immediate and flexible appointments available, including evening/weekend.
I look forward to working with you!
