Jessica Pereira, Behavioral Health Clinician
Hello my name is Jessica Pereira. I am a Behavioral Health Clinician for our Verona location. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker as well as a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I have always had the passion to help others, specifically in advocating for those who have felt stigmatized for struggling with mental health and substance use. This led me to get my Bachelor in Arts with a major in Psychology and minor in Criminal Justice, and my Masters in Social Work. Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to work in different settings with members from diverse populations, which has allowed me to grow as a therapist. The work I do is not only rewarding but it inspires me to continue to do more within the community. While I love what I do, when I am not working, I love to spend time with my friends and family, being out in nature, traveling and most importantly going to as many country concerts as I can. I am so excited to join the Eleanor Family to provide support to all of our community members and be apart of #RecoveryforLife.
I’m excited to introduce you to the rest of our Eleanor Health Verona clinical care team!
