About Jackie

My Philosophy

It takes courage to seek out any kind of therapy. Most of us have been taught to not express our vulnerable thoughts and feelings. It's a big deal to ask for help. I'm always honored when a client chooses me to lead them down the path to self discovery. 

My Story

I am a therapist who truly loves the profession. I chose this line of work because I have a great deal compassion and empathy for others. I bring many years of professional and life experience into the room. I'll always do my best to help you feel comfortable, relaxed and at home. 

 

My clients say that it's easy to talk to me. I do my best to dispel the old stereotype of the 'stuffy psychoanalyst' who nods their head, asks you how you feel, answers your question with a question and keeps watching the clock. You know what I mean. That's definitely not me! I am engaged, interactive and truly interested in what you have to say. You'll find me to be someone who cares.
