By changing our thinking patterns, we can improve our mood and sense of well-being. For those who have been "stuck" in a period of restlessness or stagnancy, we can find freedom. Alternative thoughts can positively affect our behavior and how we interact in the world and with the world - and, how the world responds to us. Ultimately, modifying old thinking patterns can effect great change—and provide us with solid, successful, and satisfying relationships we really want.


Dr. Jessica has been providing therapy to children, adults, and families for over 15 years, specializing in working with individuals, couples, and families with histories of trauma and adversity and problematic relationships.  Utilizing effective cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques, within an overarching relational framework emphasizing attachment and family systems, Dr. Griffin challenges her clients to explore their past.  This further examination of past, can provide information on current dysfunctional thinking styles and relationship difficulties in the present.  With this increased understanding, in the last phase of treatment, she guides clients in focusing on their future development - what is it that they truly want  - and works to help them get the outcomes they desire.  For individuals who are not highly symptomatic, but who are dissatisfied with life or who wish to become "unstuck" in a current situation or problematic relationship, she is available to provide short or long-term coaching.
