Jess is passionate about working with children, adolescents, and adults to create meaningful, long-lasting change. She values creating a safe, non-judgmental space for clients to better understand their thoughts and behaviors and to apply the principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). By working collaboratively, Jess helps clients identify and engage in useful coping mechanisms to make positive changes in their lives, decrease anxiety and enhance wellbeing. Jess has a special interest in treating OCD, phobias, generalized/social anxiety, and depression.  Jess emphasizes the importance of involving parents in understanding their child’s needs to be able to best support them outside of sessions.

Jess Garlow is excellent! We have loved having her work with our son and can see a vast improvement in his anxiety over this past school year. She is professional, courteous, amazing with kids, and a great communicator.
