Jessica CaraballoI worked as a case manager for adults with developmental disabilities for five years in the Boston area. Part of my job was taking my clients to their counseling and psychiatry appointments and collaborating with their providers. This experience motivated me to go back to school to receive my master’s degree to become a counselor. I believe we are all a work in progress and that everyone can benefit from counseling at some point in their life, given the many stages we go through. I have a passion to help others realize their strengths and recognize what motivates them to make changes that will result in living healthy and fulfilling lives.
