About Me


We all face challenges and changes in life, though I believe we all have the capacity to grow as we overcome these obstacles. Our bodies and minds are wired to heal and sometimes we benefit from focused support and attention to work through our barriers. I hope to be a part of your journey towards healing and prosperity. I am Jessica Sweeney, licensed mental health counselor and founder of Sunglow Counseling. I utilize a collaborative and strength-based perspective in therapy – an approach that reinforces a client’s ability to be authentic and find meaning in their process.




Educational Background


After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Florida, I moved to Chicago and completed a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Roosevelt University. After a few too many harsh winters in Chicago, I made my way back to Florida and have been developing my career ever since. I’ve been a counselor for 9 years and I absolutely adore what I do. I have specialized experience working with addiction, trauma and teens as well as the LGBTQIA population.
