About me

Your health is crucial to your survival and important to those who rely upon you. Mental health is real and solutions are attainable. You may be experiencing something completely new or maybe what bothers you has grown into something more than you feel you can readily handle on your own. Perhaps you’ve made great strides but could use some support with what is presently happening in your life. You owe it to yourself, and those who depend upon you, to make the most of your life. There really is only one you and I believe that you can make your life better.

It may not be easy. Cognitive behavioral therapy can be a useful tool in guiding a new outlook on life. My specialty areas are anxiety, depression, grief and loss, survivors of assault and adult survivors of childhood abuse. I also work with people experiencing behavioral health issues related to medical condition(s). Therapy with me would involve safety, building your strengths and slowly using those skills in the real world. Right now, you may not feel that you can get there. That will be my role to support you in your journey.

A bit about me so you know:
• I’m a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). This means I graduated with a master’s degree in social work (MSW) from an accredited university, spent two years post-
graduate in practice with supervision, oversight and learning. I keep up to date with current practices through continuing education throughout the year.
• My undergraduate degree is a Bachelor of Science with a double major in social work and psychology and an additional focus in gerontology
• I’ve got 30 years’ experience working with people in medical settings, non-profit settings, with treatment teams, groups and directly with a single person in the room
allowing me the privileged position of serving as their guide until their strength was strong.

Reach out to me about possible weekend appointment availability. We can make that happen.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Alicia Jackson. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Alicia Jackson is a kind, caring, empathetic, and supportive therapist. I sought her out as my mom entered hospice and she has been a tremendous help for me as I navigate life without my mom now. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for some extra help!

Ms. Alicia does an amazing job of “pushing me” and tends to draw me out while also being a very good listener. This is exactly what I need in a therapist; she’s a great match for me. She’s very thoughtful in her approach in dealing with me and my myriad & complex issues. I highly recommend Ms. Alicia to anyone who needs to be drawn out of their feelings and/or mind in order to open up and not hide from the tough questions while simultaneously has the need to be heard and listened to during their therapy. She’s clearly quite experienced and while it’s tough sometimes, it’s tough in a cathartic way!!!

Alicia is obviously quite experienced. She is empathic and totally present. She is clever and innovative. She can be firm when needed and only for my benefit. Her intuition guides her quite well in this regard. I really cherish her.
