Jessica L. Greenberg Psy.D.
I am a licensed psychologist who specializes in working with children, adolescents, and adults with a wide range of psychological issues. I have extensive training in a range of psychotherapeutic treatment techniques and tailor my interventions to meet the unique needs of any individual and family.
I own and operate my private practice in the Roland Park neighborhood of Baltimore, MD. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, with departmental honors, from Oberlin College, and earned a Doctorate of Psychology from the George Washington University.
I completed a pre-doctoral internship at the Village for Families and Children in Hartford, Connecticut and a postdoctoral fellowship at the Institute of Living, part of Hartford Hospital. I am licensed to practice psychology in the state of Maryland.
In the past several years, I have worked in therapeutic schools, outpatient hospitals, community clinics, and both public and private schools where I provided individual and group psychotherapy, psychological evaluations, and parent consultation.
Much of my practice involves the treatment of children and adolescents. Parents often seek out therapy for their child or adolescent when there are difficulties with academic performance, self-esteem, socialization, family relationships, stress management, or friendships. Using talk or play therapy, I work collaboratively with children to explore their thoughts and feelings so that we can better understand their challenges, address them, and resolve uncomfortable experiences. I aim to help children access their resiliency and develop tools to more effectively regulate their behavior and emotions.
Parent involvement in a child’s treatment is essential. I provide parents/guardians with resources that can assist them in understanding the nature of their child’s difficulties and reduce any tension or challenges arising in the parent-child relationship. I typically meet with parents for a parent session at least once a month, or more frequently if deemed necessary. Parents can benefit from learning strategies for helping their child at home and collaborating on how to best support the child across all environments.
I provide individualized psychotherapy services to adult clients presenting with a range of concerns including issues of adjustment, anxiety, depression, stress management, or relationship challenges. With sensitivity and curiosity, I help clients develop a deeper understanding of themselves and the origins of their difficulties. By doing so, clients can develop insight into their challenges in ways that help them consider different perspectives about themselves and others. My ultimate goal is to build a trusting relationship where clients can feel safe expressing difficult emotions in order to experience relief and increased confidence and fulfillment.
Areas of Specialization
With warmth, empathy, and curiosity, I work collaboratively with my clients to help them feel understood and recognized. I help my clients develop insight into patterns of behavior that get in their way of being successful or feeling fulfilled. I believe in helping clients access their resiliency and strengths while building skills to navigate the change process. By doing this, clients can make choices that lead them to live freer, more satisfying, and successful lives.
I have extensive training in a range of psychotherapeutic treatment modalities and techniques including psychodynamic therapy, play therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, trauma-informed treatment, parent guidance, and group work. I tend to favor a psychodynamic approach, which focuses on the impact of early experiences on how we think and feel about ourselves and interact with others; however, I tailor my interventions to meet the unique, integrated needs of any individual.
Adjustment to Life Changes/Transitions
Depression, Anxiety, Stress Management
Difficulties with Friendships
Parent/Child Relationship Concerns
Q: What can I expect during our first session?
I view the first few sessions as a consultation period. This will allow me to learn more about you, get a better sense of your needs, and for you to get a sense of what it will be like working with me. After this period of time, I will share how I think I can be helpful to you. The first appointment will last for 60 minutes.
Q: Do you take insurance?
As a licensed psychologist, my professional services qualify for patient reimbursement and may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. As an “out-of-network provider," I collect fees directly from you. Many plans allow you to apply for reimbursement using the billing statements I provide. I can also provide your insurance company with additional information they need to process your claim. I encourage you to contact your insurance company prior to your first appointment to determine your outpatient mental health benefits.
Q: How do I pay for therapy?
I currently accept cash, check, and credit cards as a form of payment. Payment is due at the time of service. I will provide you with a statement at the end of each month, so that you can submit it for reimbursement to your insurance company.
