NOW PROVIDING EMDR * Therapy for recovery from PTSD, childhood trauma, car accidents, panic attacks, anxiety over various issues such as public speaking, dental procedures, and more.  If you think EMDR might be a form of therapy you’d like to try, contact the Chico Creek Counseling office at (530) 410-0505.


Jessica Wilkerson has been providing therapy to individuals, couples, children, teens, and families since 2009. She has a special affinity for working with teens, and helping parents of teens learn ways to interact in their families to create a calmer and happier home life. No matter the client, the idea of a calm and happy life is what Jessica brings into the therapy room each time she meets with a person or couple. This is because she genuinely believes joy is achievable despite what struggles we each may be battling at any given time.


Jessica has received training in EMDR, Trauma-Focused CBT, is accredited by The Positive Parenting Program (Triple P), and is continually attending training seminars in working with couples, marriages, and individuals.


Jessica’s caring personality, education and training, and her personal experiences as a single parent, re-marriage, experience in “Corporate America,” and navigating through big life changes makes her well-rounded as a therapist with a drive to help each person, family, and couple succeed in their goals. She freely admits that she’s a little bias in that she believes in working hard to avoid divorce, and that saving a marriage most often creates less heartache than divorce can bring. That being said, she also has a deep, deep heart to help people recover emotionally after experiencing such loss and pain, and to assist them in understanding themselves, their pattern, and what they can do differently to avoid making the same choices in future partners.
