I work to provide a safe space, full of grace and compassion, as you navigate your thoughts and feelings. Do you ever wonder why life is filled with so many heartaches, disappointments, and struggles? Are you fighting to understand yourself and your family? Have you tried to make sense of your feelings and ever wonder why you are stuck in the same unhealthy cycle? I am called to strengthen families and help others find freedom, healing, and wholeness while promoting resilience. Likewise, walking with you and witnessing your growth is a true honor. Understanding the complexities of human nature begins with the assumption that people are multifaceted. This is also why I strive to understand individuals through a biological-psychological-social-spiritual lens. My deep interest in people, problems, and processes has allowed me to develop the ability to see the complex patterns and interrelatedness of understanding individuals within their respective contexts.

Dr. Jessica Pae is a licensed Psychologist and received her doctorate and masters in Clinical Psychology at Wheaton College.

Here I was trained in family health and the integration of psychology and theology. Furthermore, I received my bachelors at the University of Denver. Over time, I have then built a repertoire of skills instrumental in providing excellent treatment in outpatient/inpatient hospital settings, primary care clinics, schools, and residential treatment centers. I have extensive experience conducting evidence based treatment with children and families challenged by a wide spectrum of psychological disorders, in both individual and group settings.

Mental health awareness and prevention, parenting, healthy families, diagnosis, and psychopathology are things I love teaching people. In both urban and suburban settings, I have worked with patients from diverse ethnic, socioeconomic, and religious populations. My wide research experiences include adoption, adolescent spiritual development, suicide prevention, and the ripple effects of mass shootings. This of course has helped inform the psychological community about different aspects of family health. I also have a deep a passion for making psychology relevant and practical to the public and am available for speaking/ teaching engagements.

By tailoring evidence based strategies, I will then strive to take a holistic approach in helping you achieve your own well-being. I engage people from various subcultures as part of my training, professional and personal life, as I have found that individuals are inseparable from their cultural and social identities. Of course, I passionately advocate for my patients and have a flexible interpersonal style and can be both directive and gracious. I of course will take an empathic, caring, and compassionate stance in my therapeutic work while challenging you to own your therapeutic process. I desire to provide an emotionally safe atmosphere for others where they can explore painful struggles and at the same time to offer humor and joy for life that inspires optimism and hope.
