Jessica Jarman, M.Ed, LPC
I’m a licensed professional counselor in Columbia, SC that works with LGBTQ+ clients looking for a safe space to work things out.
I graduated with my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling in 2013. I found myself specializing in trauma, spending several years as a therapist in a domestic violence center and then in substance abuse treatment.
When I arrived in Columbia I took on a support group for LGBTQIA+ teens and realized how few therapists we have that truly specialize in working with the LGBT+ community. I decided this is where I needed to be.
As a member of the LGBT+ community myself, you’ll never have to educate or defend your identity with me. I love to laugh, I’m sarcastic, irreverent, energetic and honest. I paint, draw, sculpt and sew. I have two dogs that I absolutely love and yes- I do want to see a picture of your pups.
