Jessica Morton

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Suite 119 (Main Level)
Education

Bachelor’s degree in Psychology – UW-Platteville
Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy – Edgewood College

Clinical Approach

Jessica welcomes individuals, couples, and families. Problems are seen as a system-wide issue requiring all people affected by the “problem” to work together to open the lines of communication that address unspoken needs and feelings. Every voice deserves to be heard and understood, which is why therapy is a partnership and not an expert telling you what to do. Jessica listens to each person with equal respect because every individual has the power to make positive, lasting changes in their lives. No one is considered “broken” or needs to be “fixed.” Because we are human, there is always room to grow and improve our own lives.
