Jessica L. Penkal, MSW, LSW

Jessica L. Penkal is a Licensed Social Worker in Ohio who has been practicing since 2021. She has a Master’s of Arts in Social Work and a Master’s of Arts in Clinical Psychology. Are you on a journey of self-discovery? Are you having difficulty communicating your needs and creating boundaries with others? Are you part of the LGBTQIA+ community in need of support and affirmations? Are you wanting to learn what barriers are preventing from you achieving your goals? Do you have difficulty regulating your emotions? If any of these questions resonate with you then Jessica could be the right therapist for you. Jessica is not interested in changing what makes you special just because society is unaccepting of it. Being your authentic self is a part of mental health. Jessica believes therapy is not a one-size-fits-all, so she uses multiple approaches. She believes person-centered therapy and feminist therapy are important to show respect to the client for who they are and allow them to be a full participant in the direction of their treatment. Assertiveness communication is a necessary skill if a client wants to create boundaries. It is important for Jessica to make mental health treatment as accessible as possible and offer hours outside of the normal 9 to 5 on weekdays. Jessica also thinks it is vital to explain in the first session about consent during treatment. That you as the client have complete control over how much you are willing to share while trust is being built. Outside of work, Jessica enjoys expression through the arts utilizing vibrant colors through several different mediums of acrylic paint, crochet, jewelry making, and dancing. She also likes a game night with friends whether it is a card game or online computer gaming.
