Kid Clinic New Provider Jessica Delgatto

Licensed Professional Counselor Jessica Delgatto was ready to make a change in her life. The newest counselor at the Kid Clinic comes to Gillette from Florida, where her clients included young people who had suffered significant trauma in their lives. Jessica’s training includes an undergraduate degree from the University of Central Florida centered on nonprofit management and grant writing, and a Master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling, with a focus on crisis and trauma prevention.

She had been to Wyoming several years ago with a plan to live and work in Wheatland, but ended up staying in Florida.

“This time, my son just turned 21, and a recruiter told me about the opportunity in Gillette,” said Jessica. “My goal is to go somewhere where I can make a difference. I came here to see what I could do.”

Jessica is open, honest and direct with her clients, and encourages them to challenge and question her. She often uses an artistic approach to therapy, using art and music to help clients open up and communicate their thoughts. She is ready to work with the challenges she has already seen in Gillette; young people in crisis and suicide prevention.

“I tell these clients that tomorrow needs you,” says Jessica. “ The teenage years are hard, and I want them to understand that they should never make a long-term decision based on a temporary situation”.

Kid Clinic Practice Manager Marlo Dunham is excited to have Jessica onboard.

“Jessica is a great addition to our team of counselors”, said Marlo. “She has jumped right in and is helping us serve even more kids in the community that need our help.”

Jessica has embraced small-town living too. She takes walks around town, exploring Gillette with her dog Jamie-dog. Her hobbies include crafting and creating, and photography. She is also passionate about animal-assisted therapy, and hopes there may be a place with that in the community.

“Gillette is very welcoming, even when I’m lost,” says Jessica. “And the team here at the Kid Clinic is amazing”.

Welcome Jessica, to Campbell County Health and Gillette!
