About Jessica Joiner

Jessica has a private practice in the Denver/Metro area of Colorado where, in addition to working with athletes, she also works with military personnel, first responders, as well as other individuals and couples. She has an integrated approach that includes a social justice, systems, and advocacy perspective. She values the importance of human connection and relationship with others and sees it as a powerful vehicle for change. She considers it an honor to help others on their journey to achieving their best life through recovery, healing, and empowerment.

She uses a variety of approaches, tailored to each client, to help them meet their goals. These approaches include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Brief Solution Focused, and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR Trained), among others.

Jessica has over a decade of experience working with those afflicted with addiction, complex trauma, and co-occurring disorders.  She is using that experience and her expertise to address the many issues that arise for athletes. Jessica works with all levels of athletic performers to address issues such as anxiety/depression, daily stress and pressure, substance abuse/addiction, adjusting from one level of play to the next, identity, injury, and overall mental health and wellness.  She is a member of the Alliance of Social Workers in Sports where she is a Co-chair of the Clinicians Committee and has presented at two of their National Conferences along with other organizations and Universities.  In addition, Jessica is an approved and listed provider on the Mental Health Registries for both the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA), and the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC).

Jessica is a professional speaker and as part of her practice, she enjoys presenting material on various topics related to mental health in sports, equity, diversity, and inclusion issues, as well as those related to substance abuse/addiction.
