I'm Jessica Schroeder

I work to strengthen the connection between you and the loved ones in your life.  When our work is complete, my hope for you and your family is for you to feel connected with one another, to feel supported by one another, accepted for who you are, to be a valued member of your family and appreciated by those closest to you.  I want for you to feel admired and adored by your partner.  I want your family to be a warm and nurturing place for your whole family. 

My Story

As soon as I began taking classes in Psychology, I knew I wanted to serve my community as a therapist.  It wasn't until I took Psychology of Families at the University of Kansas that I realized my passion for couples and families.  As the class progressed, I felt enlightened learning about family dynamics and how families operate.  This curiosity is what led me to the field of Marriage and Family Therapy.
