African American Couple

Owner & Licensed Therapist, Charlotte, NC

"I love being a therapist for that moment when my client realizes that they have the power to change their direction in life. That spark in their eyes shows me that they have found hope again, and I am grateful for the opportunity to lead them." -Jessica Craig Driggers, M.Ed, LPC
 

believe in the inate ability that we have to heal ourselves in most situations, physically and emotionally. We just need the tools to do so, that's where I come in. I am present-centered, meaning that I work with my clients in the moment- exactly where they are. I look at your body language, at times just as much as I focus on what you are saying. Our bodies can tell just as much of a story as our words. I use cognitive behavioral therapy often, because there is a strong interaction between what we think, how we feel, and the associated behaviors. 

I'll assist you in identifying where you see yourself in the world, your value system, and I'll challenge those areas against your presenting concerns. I am action-oriented, which means that there will be assignments outside of the counseling room. I believe that counseling goes beyond the office and is most effective when we live it out in our daily lives. I assist my clients in healing considering the pressures and norms in today's society. I am a distance credentialed counselor, meaning that I can meet with you for online counseling sessions when appropriate.

My ideal client is:

  • Depressed or sad

and/or

  • Anxious or worried

and/or

  • Has low self-esteem or confidence

and

  • Motivated to change and work hard.
