Hello! You made it! You have come to the right place.
A little bit about me and what you get...I'm Jackie. I'm a Licensed Therapist in the state of California. I have over 20 years of experience. I am a devout Christian and highly trained and credentialed in multiple evidence-based therapies. I am also a chief clinical supervisor and I train and teach professional therapists. I use a Christ-centered approach and the Lord's commandments to help you understand the meaning of your depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions, parenting, and family conflicts. I also have experience with substance abuse & recovery, grief & loss and PTSD. I offer individual, couples and family therapy. I have been happily married for 25 years, I have two amazing children, and I also care for my elderly mother. Family is super important to me.
I can definitely help you recover from your feelings of sadness, loneliness, uncontrollable worry or life stress. You are seeking a therapist with Christian values to help you through a difficult time; I know must have been anything but easy. Regardless of where you were earlier today, I want to recognize that it may not have been easy to make the choice to come to therapy. I can acknowledge that this choice is never a simple one, but be assured that you have my commitment to help you reach your goals and your potential for happiness, because you deserve it.
Why therapy? Whether you have had therapy before or this is your first time, you have made the right choice to get guidance through a struggle. Therapy will be an opportunity for you to learn about yourself and learn to express and understand your feelings. You will gain a deeper understanding of where your struggles are coming from and uncover realistic solutions for them. You will learn skills and strategies to cope with your stress. I will give you the tools you need to get your needs met. I genuinely care about you and will be there for you to encourage and support you through your personal journey. I invite you to use this safe space as a way to help figure out how to be the best YOU. Know that you are not alone in this and I will be with you every step of the way. Now, let's get started...
- Stress, Anxiety
- Family conflicts
- Trauma and abuse
- Coping with life changes
I also have experience in Addictions, Relationship issues, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coaching, Compassion fatigue, ADHD

Jackie is attentive, caring, and compassionate. I have struggled with the fear of being judged and it’s so nice to be able to be honest and talk freely about myself and my concerns with someone who helps without judgment. Thank you, Jackie!
