Jessica Foreman, MA, PLMFT
Project H.O.P.E. Program Coordinator
Mrs. Jessica Foreman is a Provisionally Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who hails from Arcadia, LA. She graduated from Louisiana Tech University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science in Family Science. She obtained a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Counseling from Asbury Theological Seminary in 2016. Jessica is passionate about mindfulness, relaxation, self-care, healthy boundaries, and the practical integration of theology and counseling. She loves teaching parenting classes and frequently uses Gottman Couples Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Sand Tray, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy with her clients. She believes that people are a product of their relationships and facilitates connections by fostering attachment, empathy, and reconciliation among couples and families.
Jessica loves living in Lafayette with her husband with whom she has three children. She is a huge fan of Marvel and Monty Python, and breakfast is her favorite food. She’s a little nerdy, reading research articles gives her great joy, and although a self-proclaimed slow runner, she still enjoys hitting the pavement as much as possible.
