Family Therapist, Jessica Hansen LCSW at Unified Family TherapyMore About Me

My name is Jessica Hansen, I went into the field of social work for the purpose of helping people. I have a huge passion for helping children and youth overcome the many difficulties they face in the world today. There is a rise in difficulties that our younger populations are exposed to. I help children and youth face challenges with anxiety, depression, grief, self-esteem, divorce, and relationships. I utilize techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-centered therapy, and Play therapy to help my clients work through the issues they are facing. On top of these techniques, I like to help teach communication skills when there is a need for more effective communication among parents and children. 


I have experience working in schools both in the classroom and in a counseling position. I had the opportunity to work in an inpatient treatment center. Over the past year, I have been in a community-based practice doing community-based rehabilitative services and counseling. Prior to entering the social work field, I was a CNA where I developed my love and passion for helping others. 


I received my bachelor’s degree from Utah State University in social work with a minor in mental health awareness and advocacy. I then went on to complete my master’s degree in social work from the University of Kentucky. Due to being fresh out of school, I am full of new perspectives and techniques. I want to create sessions that are interactive and useful for my clients. I look forward to working with you and helping you overcome the challenges you are facing.
