Master of Social Work (MSW)

Jessica Hudson

As a devoted and empathetic Social Worker, I am dedicated to providing a secure environment for individuals to navigate their thoughts and emotions concerning depression, anxiety, trauma, and life transitions. My Master's degree in Social Work is the foundation of my deep commitment to assisting individuals in overcoming their mental health challenges.

I have extensive experience working with diverse groups, including teenagers, families, and those dealing with mood and anxiety disorders. My expertise particularly lies in supporting individuals who have encountered trauma or are coping with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), guiding them through managing their experiences.

Life’s challenges can be daunting, often casting a shadow on our mental health. In our sessions, I aim to offer clarity in recognizing triggers and leveraging strengths. Together, we will set attainable goals and work towards them, embarking on a transformative journey towards self-discovery, growth, and resilience.
