Hello and welcome! I am Jessica Byrd (she/her), therapist and owner of Embodied Empowerment Counseling Services.
I empower women to overcome cycles of anxiety, perfectionism, and stress that keep them feeling stuck and unfulfilled.
I believe that people heal best when they have access to a space where they are seen, heard, and able to be their authentic selves. As a therapist it's my job to help you access your inner strengths so you can create a life that is fufilling and sustainable. My hope is that you leave my office with a greater understanding of who you are and feel more confident in how you want to move forward.
My Background and Experience
My clinical experience and training have focused on women’s mental health in areas related to body image, sexuality, reproductive health, self-esteem, trauma, anxiety, and relationships. I've been working with in the field of women’s mental health for nearly a decade and have experience working in a variety of settings including women’s shelters and outreach programs, the criminal justice system, women’s reproductive health centers, eating disorder treatment centers, and outpatient private practices.
I believe that women are most empowered when they have access to the wisdom of their bodies. As we work together in therapy we will create space for you to slow down, taking care of your body, and reconnect with what matters most to you.
You deserve to feel comfortable and confident in the life you've built for yourself.
I am honored that you have chosen this practice to continue your healing journey and look forward to working with you! Reach out to me so that we can talk more about moving forward together.
