Jessica Nappi, LPCA

 Everyone experiences change and transition throughout their lives, it’s what keeps us human. From welcoming a new bundle of joy into the world to grieving the loss of loved ones, our lives are constantly in transition. However, change is difficult. Adjusting to change can bring about stress, anxiety, lowered self-esteem, and depression. Yet, in these moments of change is where personal growth is cultivated. Are you experiencing a life change? Are you starting college, newly married, or changing careers? Are you moving, going through a divorce, or retiring? If so, therapy can help you navigate through this transition and grow in the process.

As a therapist specializing in life transitions, I adhere to the eclectic approach. By this I mean that therapy looks different for everyone. As a therapist, I implement aspects of person-centered, solution-focused, strengths-based, mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral theories to help you understand and cope with your specific stressors. Together, we will investigate your challenges and collaborate to create goals. We will delve into the impact these stressors have on you and will begin to explore techniques to overcome them. You’ll be encouraged to try out your new skills in your life outside of therapy. We will collectively reflect on how these skills are helping you. We will work towards building a toolset that will allow you to defeat your stressor and manage future life transitions.

I love being in nature and have seen the benefits of embracing the natural world on mental health, especially through therapy. I am always looking for new evidence-based practices to share with clients and am open to exploring how your interests can be therapeutic for you. As a Kentucky native, I have both lived and worked in rural and urban areas throughout the state and understand the ever-changing culture of our commonwealth. No matter what stage of life you’re in, I am here to listen.

Jessica sees clients in the Florence office and via telehealth.
