About Jessica Potter

About Me, Jessica Potter LMFT...

I have been a psychotherapist in the Bay Area since 1996, and have had a private practice in Marin County since 2006. Some areas of focus in my work have been substance abuse and addiction prevention and treatment, working with children and teenagers, family therapy, and treatment of trauma. It is rare that I work with someone who has not been touched by some form of addiction or trauma, and my clients have greatly benefitted from learning how family addiction and traumatic experiences affect them in their relationships, in their work, and in their everyday lives.

Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked as a director of Programs for people with disabilities and underserved populations where I encouraged young people to realize their strengths while living with a disability, living below poverty level, and coming from refugee and immigrant families.

I am also trained in using EMDR, (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), as a very successful treatment of trauma for people of all ages.

My private practice allows me the flexibility to work with people from many different issues and experiences, with clients from multi-cultural and multi-ethnic backgrounds, and to provide treatment in ways that best meet the needs of each individual or family.
