Hello and welcome! I’m Jessica Fountas, a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) in New York and Connecticut. As you spend time on my website getting to know me and the work I do, my hope is you will begin to feel excited about getting to know yourself and your relationships more deeply.

I am a relational therapist and I work collaboratively with clients to make meaning out of lived experiences. Together we get curious about how internalized beliefs and communication styles hold you back from the life and relationships you aspire for. Our conversations help you develop new tools and integrate positive ways of being. In working with me, you begin to identify strengths and resiliency you’ve overlooked before.

External influences and relationships often shape perceptions and perspectives. Through unpacking these powerful systems in our therapy sessions, you become more intimate with yourself and others. Traditional psychology often identifies people as the problems within their lives while neglecting to tie in how outside factors lead to feelings of disconnection. Challenges such as anxiety, depression, high conflict, low self-esteem, addiction, and more, are often coping mechanisms inherited and learned. Together we look at the multiple intersections of your life to help understand why unwanted thoughts, behaviors, and patterns have developed. Our work helps you let these themes go and replace them with new and different ways of connecting with yourself and others.

Understanding how labels and ideologies become internalized identities enables you to question whether these ways of experiencing yourself still serve you. Together, we challenge whether these behaviors still resonate and have meaning for you. Our work together facilitates choice and agency in your life and your relationships.

In addition to my clinical work, I am an American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT) Clinical Fellow and an AAMFT Approved Supervisor candidate. I am a Faculty Supervisor and Adjunct Professor at Antioch University New England’s master’s degree program in couple and family therapy where I am also studying for my doctorate in couple and family therapy and expected to graduate in May 2024. I earned my master’s degree in clinical psychology from Antioch University Southern California in 2002.

I find meaningful joy in helping people live full and awakened lives. Please reach out if you have any questions about working together.
