Hi, I hope you are well or soon will be.
My name is Mr. Antimoore Jackson. I would like to share with you a little about my background. I am a doctorate (PhD) educated psychotherapist, dual credentialed as a Licensed Clinical Social
Worker (LCSW) and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor (LADAC) with over 38 years in the counseling field. The big benefit of these years is that I know a lot about helping people, period!
Because of my many years of experience, I’ve had a unique opportunity to work directly with a broad range of individuals and a diverse population of people in various clinical settings. For example, I’ve worked extensively with child and adolescent clients, including the affluent and also those in foster care or with histories of delinquency; I’ve worked with young adults in prison and/or caught up in the criminal justice system; I’ve worked with professionals such as lawyers, teachers, and actually other therapists in denial about their alcohol and drug problem. This vast experience means that I am usually able to quickly assess root causes of problems and provide thorough and effective solutions.
I am an excellent fit for any racial or ethnic group, any faith group, the LGBTQ community, youth and teens, couples struggling with marriage or relationship conflicts, and executives dealing with career or life issues.
I’ve worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, work related conflict, teens and youth adjustment issues, and alcohol and drug abuse, including DWIs. I also help people who have experienced physical and sexual trauma or emotional abuse and neglect.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. However, I am direct and totally honest in my interaction with persons I help in counseling.
I am very knowledgeable about a multitude of counseling models such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling, and the Afrocentric perspective. I will tailor an approach and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
You know, it takes courage to seek help for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and help empower you. I have proven experience.
I look forward to working with you!
Dr. Antimoore Hugh Jackson

Dr. Jackson is very professional in his line of work. He is dedicated to helping his clientele, myself, understand the bigger picture of why I have the behavior I do. He is able to break things down into smaller bites so I may digest them easier. I have been seeing him for a month and that allowed me to openly share my past trauma. I plan to see him for another month so I may learn how to move forward from my childhood experiences.

From what I have experienced with Dr. Jackson so far, he hears what I have to say and offers different resources to better explain why I feel the way I do. He is a well spoken man with an expansive range of personalities that he has dealt with before. The only thing I feel needs improvement is the audio quality of our calls.

I appreciate the fact that Dr. Jackson is easy to talk to and actually listens objectively, but I would hope that to be true of all counselors. What I believe sets Dr. Jackson apart is his experience with a variety of people and his ability to relate those experiences to situations that you face. It helps me to feel as though I'm not alone in my struggles which sometimes is the best comfort. The storytelling and explainations as to why he relates those experiences have been very refreshing for me. Dr. Jackson also leaves room for growth and questions. He doesn't just say this is the issue I feel you're having and this is what we're going to do about it. He asks what do you want to work on. Again this may be common practice, but this is my first counseling experience and I appreciate someone not trying to "fix me" but coming along side me to help me in becoming a better me.
