Jessica Hutson, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Our lives are ever-changing and evolving; presenting us with new opportunities and challenges along the way. We may find that what was once manageable becomes overwhelming, or that new circumstances bring struggle and the need for additional support. I am someone who believes that we all encounter times in our lives where we can benefit from seeking additional guidance and support. I would love to walk that path with you.
I was born and raised in Austin, Texas. I attended the University of Texas for both my Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and also my Master’s Degree in Social Work. My own experience with loss related to a parent’s terminal illness further reinforced my drive toward the counseling profession. I have worked in the hospice and bereavement field for the last 5 years and continue to work as a hospice social worker; assisting patients and families with navigating the grieving process. I am passionate about helping people find deeper understanding, hope, and rediscovery after loss and significant life events.
My goal as a therapist is to offer a relaxed, informal setting where we can discuss both where you came from…and where you want to go. Whether you are experiencing a significant life transition or just feeling overwhelmed with daily stressors, I will provide a safe, trusting environment to explore all of this. I believe that small shifts in thinking and behavior can have profound effects on our happiness and well-being. It’s never too late (or early!) to seek positive change in our lives.
