Jessa Fabiano, MSW, LICSW

Jessa has worked in the Counseling Center at JCS since 2016. She earned her MSW at Rhode Island College and is a generalist, strengths-based social worker with over 18 years of experience working with all ages and stages of the lifespan but has special expertise with teenagers and LGBTQ+ folks. Jessa has a background in creative arts, however, her clinical practice is grounded in evidence-based theory which creates a unique environment for transformative growth, personal development, and a safe space for clients to be with and process their experience. In the words of Pema Chodron, Jessa believes, “Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals.”
