Jessica Ried, MA

master's in clinical mental health counseling

I specialize in child and adolescent disorders concentrating on autism and ADHD, with a focus on depression and anxiety. My youngest brother has autism and has struggled with his mental health. It was difficult to find providers for him, so I wanted to specialize to help other people with autism and other issues. I really enjoy hiking and long walks in the woods with my dog. I graduated from Potsdam State University of New York with a Bachelor of Arts, and from Liberty University with a Master of Arts in Counseling. I am a member of the American Counseling Association.
