Jessica Hood, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Indianapolis
Difficulty managing your child's behaviors at home, school, or community? Is your child angry, irritable, or moody? Constant phone calls about their behavior? Don't know where to turn for help? If YES to any of these, I hope you will take a moment to consider working with me. I know the stress can leave you reeling and exhausted! Now, take a second to imagine being less worried and less stressed about your child...I would love to help make that vision a reality for you.
I enjoy working with children, teens, and their families to help them gain control of the issues affecting their lives. I believe therapy should be client specific & result in the change you want. I will work to get to the heart of the issue and resolve the problem.
I have worked in schools, inpatient residential centers, child welfare, and outpatient settings. I specialize in working with children & teens, but love to also work with adults who appreciate a direct and motivated approach. *I do NOT accept Medicaid/sliding fee.**I don't see children under the age of 5.*
