Jessica Bouchard, MA, LPCC

(she/her/hers)

Clinical & Treatment Director

As a strengths-based therapist, I strive to help clients find and employ their natural strengths and use their successes to guide them on their therapeutic journey. The therapeutic relationship and process can be a  powerful tool in helping individuals reframe issues and find new ways of being that bring peace, happiness, and new perspectives. I have devoted my work to providing treatment, therapy, psychosexual evaluations, and evaluations of inappropriate sexual behavior to guide treatment planning for adults, adolescents, and children who have engaged in sexually abusive or harmful behaviors. Both in the community and in correctional systems, I have extensive experience in helping clients work through difficult and/or problematic sexual issues or behaviors, as well as those related to sexuality which may stand in the way of living life to the fullest. Additionally, I am an ally for and provide therapeutic services to individuals who identify with the LGBTQ+ community. My approach to therapy is affirming and non-judgmental, providing space to process through and explore past hurt and trauma, ineffective patterns of behavior, and explore new perspectives.
