D o you know anybody who’s so good at asking questions, that talking to them helps you see things more clearly and gives you more confidence? Dr. Jessica Pavlick is like that. She’s a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice who excels at connecting with people on the things that are most important to them.

How did you get into this field?

A good experience with a psychologist who helped me and my family when I was a teenager. This experience always stayed with me, and I thought if I could help people in a similar way, it would be very meaningful work. Despite trying other more financially lucrative ventures, I ultimately came back to what felt most purposeful.

What do you love about the work?

Seeing others come to love and accept themselves, as well as utilize their authenticity as a gift to the world. Getting to be a part of that journey with someone else.

Why do people hire you?

I value being honest, open to learning and humble.

How do you feel about study skills?

They are imperative for a happy life. You can let life run away with you, or figure out how to be present and prioritize so you can have time for the things we need most, like connection, resting and having fun.

What is your favorite piece of advice to give students?

I think the ee Cummings quote says it best, “To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting.”
