About Jessica

Jessica Rose Portrait

Like many therapists, my journey to becoming a mental health professional is deeply personal and inspired by my own experiences.

From the earliest moments of childhood, I felt a strong calling to support others and provide a non-judgemental ear for their feelings. But it wasn’t until I went through a series of traumatic events in early adulthood — and subsequently sought out my own therapists — that I realized I could channel my caring, compassionate nature into a career.

My experience in therapy opened up a path of healing and self-discovery for me. It helped me understand how life’s events, combined with my empathic nature, had caused my inner dialogue to grow increasingly toxic and abusive. Then, it helped me transform that dialogue into something kind, caring, and uplifting. 

In short, therapy reignited my passion for life and sparked my journey to becoming a therapist. 

Fast forward two decades, and here we are. Today, I’m proud to provide a safe space where others can improve their own relationships with themselves and grow into the happy, healthy people they were always meant to be. 

My Practice

Jessica Rose Therapy Office

I understand that taking the first step towards healing can seem daunting.  That’s why I’ve designed a warm and inviting office space in the heart of downtown Chico. Here, you’re welcome to be yourself and share your heart’s contents without fear or judgement.

My private practice is a hate-free space that welcomes individuals of all backgrounds, including women, men, and those across the LGBTQIA+ spectrum.

My Credentials

I hold a Master’s Degree in Psychology from Chico State University and have spent over a decade working one-on-one with clients. These years of study and practice have given me the knowledge and skills to create personalized, effective treatment plans proven to get results. 

Alongside my formal degree and work experience, I also hold EMDR certification from EMDRIA (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing International Association) and continue to attend therapy-related workshops.

Your path to healing starts here.

If you’re ready to take the first step towards a happier, healthier life, I am here to help. With my guidance, expertise, and understanding, you can develop a better relationship with yourself, heal from past traumas, and build the resilience needed to face life’s challenges head-on.
