Jessica Rick, PsyD, LP (she/her)
Jessica is a licensed psychologist who finds herself incredibly inspired by the unique human ability to build a meaningful and authentic life despite the darkness that many of us face. She views her role as a therapist as two-fold: validating that you are doing the best you can given the skills and resources you already have, while also empowering you to grow through new ways of thinking about and coping with difficult circumstances. She strives to work collaboratively with you to examine your values, foster resilience to overcome challenges, and move towards a life of purpose. Jessica sees individuals for therapy.
An individualized and person-centered approach to therapy is central to Jessica’s work with clients. Outside of this, her approach integrates aspects of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and positive psychology.
Jessica has a particular interest in working with struggles related to anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship concerns, and identity development. She specializes in working with individuals who identify as “perfectionists, “people-pleasers,” and “overachievers” and find these traits are holding them back from a meaningful life.

Jessica grew up in Wisconsin and has spent portions of her life in Iowa, Georgia, and Kansas. She is a Midwesterner at heart and is happy to now call Minnesota her home! Outside of work, She finds joy in exercising, trying new restaurants, and playing with her adorable Shiba Inu pup, Koda.
