Jessica Kinsey (she/her/hers) is a student intern at The Meaningful Life Center. She is currently earning her Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a graduate certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy at Rollins College. She obtained her undergraduate degree in Clinical Psychology with a minor in Mass Culture and Collective Behavior from the University of Central Florida. At an early age, Jessica had the desire to help others, but it wasn’t until her undergraduate that she understood her calling was to become a counselor. Jessica offers a safe space to welcome folks as their authentic self to process their experiences and work towards a life that each client wants. Her areas of interest are eating disorders, family systems, trauma, self-esteem/confidence, self-love, identity development, stress management, anxiety, and depression.
Jessica has a background of working with and advocating for adults, teenagers, the eating disorder community, and survivors of human trafficking. She enjoys working with folks of all ages, sexual orientations, and other held identities. Jessica’s approach utilizes dialectical-behavioral, mindfulness, narrative, and play therapy. She incorporates a multicultural and feminist approach to help empower clients to heal while strengthening their mental and emotional well-being. Jessica is an LGBTQIA+, non-monogamous relationship-affirming, and kink/BDSM-affirming student intern. In her free time, Jessica loves spending time with her partner, friends, and kitty cat (which she named Oohteeny from the Jawas in Star Wars). She also enjoys being outside, doing yoga, riding her bike, doodling, and finding beauty in the small things in life.
