About

Licensed marriage and family therapist, owner, and clinical supervisor at Inspired Life Counseling, Jessica Wilkerson is trained in EMDR for trauma and in EFT for couples counseling. She truly believes that this career is her mission, and she brings the Lord with her into her work day, each day. Focusing fully on the client's presenting need and goal, she gives her full attention to understanding where her clients have been emotionally and relationally. Where have they been wounded? What has the enemy been telling them about themselves? How can they move toward healing, and then toward a happier life with deeper relationships?

Inspired Life Counseling also has pre-licensed therapists who have their Master's degree, but aren't yet licensed. They are wonderful clinicians who see clients and then who meet with Jessica to learn and obtain clinical guidance. Sometimes it's more financially feasible to work with one of her associate clinicians, knowing that you're therapy is still guided by Jessica Wilkerson, LMFT 104464.

My Christian Faith and My Professional Practice

There isn't enough room for my testimony in regards to my faith and my profession. The road from working in the corporate arena, through graduate school, and onto licensure was long - and there were many times I doubted that this arduous journey wasn't just wanderlust or the enemy cultivating discontentment. Each time, I was tempted to quit the Lord showed up in unfathomable ways making it clear and obvious that this was His path for me.

I am comforted to know that when I'm with my clients it's not me in the room creating the change. The words may come from my mouth, but it is God who is speaking to my clients' hearts. He has opened doors for me to continue to receive extensive training in trauma and in marriage counseling, and he has put a fire in my veins to save families from turmoil, and His children from doubt, inner lies, toxic relationships, and more.

Because every denomination has varied differences, I don't go into scripture during sessions unless a client specifically asks for it, and then I speak about it in a way that I feel is clinically relevant. This is because it's easy to shift from the topic of my client's pain and into a discussion about scripture. I have faith that my clients can access their ministers, their Bibles, and those who fellowship with them - this is their time to explore their hearts.

Proverbs 20:50 - The purpose in a man's heart is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out.
