Jessica Albertson

Psychologist

I am a licensed clinical psychologist offering individual psychotherapy to adults and adolescents.

My work focuses on helping my patients come to know themselves more deeply in order to reduce emotional distress, improve relationships, and gain insight into their current struggles.

I received my Ph.D. from City University of New York and my M.Ed from Harvard Graduate School of Education and I have experience working with individuals across the lifespan. Using an integrated psychodynamic approach, I help my patients feel empowered, more self-aware and more confident in their choices.

Most importantly, I strive to help my patients feel truly heard and known, as that is the foundation upon which long-term meaningful change is built.
