About Jodi


My name is Jodi Willems and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), licensed in both Delaware and Maryland. I see clients in-person in my office in Newark, DE. Although I offer teletherapy sessions, I find that the in-person setting is much more beneficial for the therapeutic process.  For those clients wishing to do EMDR therapy, I only do EMDR in person. 

My practice is based on emotional healing and helping clients to feel safe. The therapeutic relationship is based on mutual trust and I work to gain your trust so that we can address the issues that brought you to therapy. I work from a person-centered, holistic approach and will treat you as an individual, respecting your unique life story and experiences. Our focus will be to work towards the goals you feel are important in your life. I value your participation in therapy because this is an integral part of healing the soul. 

My work encompasses many areas including anxiety/stress, depression, grief, codependency, substance use, and trauma. I am certified in EMDR by the EMDRIA International Association. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Therapy) can be an effective intervention and approach to therapy that can assist clients who are experiencing symptoms of trauma. 

My experience has taught me that I must be authentic with you in order to gain your trust. I will accept you unconditionally and value you as a human being. I will create an atmosphere of empathic understanding so that I might best understand your unique life experience and provide you with the best possible therapeutic experience.

My Values

My Mission

My mission is to help clients who have experienced trauma find peace in their lives. This involves educating clients about what trauma is and how it has affected them.  Healing trauma is a physiological experience because trauma lives in the body, not just in the mind.  I highly recommend reading a book called The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk, as he explains the correlation between the brain, mind and body in healing trauma.  

My Process

My process is different with each client because everyone's story is unique. Each client comes to therapy seeking something different and it is important to identify your goals in therapy before we start the process of healing. Initially, we will concentrate on taking a history of your life events to see how they have impacted your life, for better or worse.  We will talk about your symptoms and how they are impacting your quality of life. Then we will plan which therapeutic interventions will be appropriate. 

Let's work together

My style of therapy is interactive and collaborative with clients. I offer a warm and welcoming environment so you can feel safe.  I need to earn your trust so that we can build a healthy and trusting relationship where you can allow yourself to feel vulnerable while working through your trauma.
