I have been a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Florida for the past 5 years, and I currently hold a Ph.D. in Psychology. I have worked with adolescents, their families, and adults with addiction and dual disorders for the past 17 years. Twelve out these 17 years of experience, I have worked directly with adults with addiction, anger management, and self-management problems. Helping individuals and couples who are struggling with addiction problems (i.e., alcohol, illicit substances, medication abuse, gambling, technology) has been the center of my work. I have also worked with the family members of individuals who were dealing with different addictions. I understand that the impact of a loved one's addiction problems can be very overwhelming, and at times, too much to handle. For this reason, helping the family members of individuals with addiction problems has also been one of my greatest passions. The impact that stems from various types of addiction includes, but are not limited to grief and loss, feelings of powerless, depression, anxiety, and much more.
My approach includes cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, Rogerian, and positive psychology techniques. If you are ready to regain control over your life, whether you are directly suffering from addiction problems or you have been impacted by someone else's addiction, I would like to assist you in instilling hope back into your life.
On a more personal note, I am originally from Brazil; however, I have been in the US for the past 24 years. I am currently a proud American citizen. I enjoy meditation and walking, and I love animals. Additionally, helping others has been among my greatest passions. So, I absolutely look forward to working with you.

I appreciate Dr. Jackson so much. My feelings are complicated and painful, and I can't really express them to my friends and family--they just don'tget it. As a result of being unable to express myself, I start feeling so lonely and just have to deal with my pain. But Dr. Jackson frees me from all of that: she listens empathetically; she really hears what I'm saying; and she's able to help me better understand my feelings and my person. She gets me when no one else really would. And I'm very grateful for that. Thank you Dr. Jackson
Dr. Jackson is such a kind, caring and smart professional! Couldn’t be happier to have found her!
Dr. Jackson is very knowledgeable and easy to speak to. She has helped me better understand the “why” behind some of my actions. I look forward to continuing to work with her.
I have found so much progress in my life with Dr. Jackson. Making changes I never thought possible has been possible with her.
Dr. Jackson has taken the time to get to know me, and understand me. And that is huge to me. I look forward to working with her more.
Dr. Jackson is amazing and is very reliable. Dr. Jackson has been my therapist for a while now and she is so understanding, caring, and still knows how to turn the conversation back to me staying grounded. I love her recommendations and reminders for me to do something for myself as in taking time for myself to relax. I cannot see myself ever going into a office for a therapy appointment again. BetterHelp is really the way to go. It is super convenient and my therapist is qualified and really know what she is doing and takes the time to keep it professional with notes and keeping up with what I talk about in our sessions so if I ever come back to something I talked about months ago she know exactly what I am talking about.
Dr. Jackson was really professional and helped me map how I was feeling, understand the causes and plan for changes that would help me feel better. We established rapport very quickly and it was very easy to have a virtual conversation with her, I didn’t feel the difference with that and a face to face conversation. I am really thankful for the work I did with Dr. Jackson.
i recommend dr jackson to anyone who looks at counseling.
Dr. Jackson listens for understanding and not just to respond. She is helpful when addressing concerns I may or may not recognize and makes me feel comfortable. She is mindful and a great counselor.
Dr. Jackson is great and have been helping me a lot since I started our counseling. Thank you!
Great therapist! Really listens and is very helpful and knowledgeable!
I love everything about this app.
I love love LOVE Dr. Jackson. I really wanted a confidential way to get counseling and I’ve now been using Better Help to talk to Dr. Jackson weekly for the past two years. She has helped me improve my life in a lot of ways. Not all the way there yet, but Dr. Jackson has really helped me improve my thought processes substantially, resulting in a substantial reduction of harmful behaviors on my part. She well and truly saved my marriage as well. I love her a counselor because she really truly knows me. She takes notes! She brings up things that happened or were discussed even months ago and helps keep my perspective in check. I’ve gained tremendous value from my time with her, and I plan to continue our weekly sessions indefinitely.
Dr. Jackson is a good therapist. She’s very knowledgeable on addiction. Her support has been good for me and I’d be worse off without it.
Phenomenal, wonderful listener and completely supportive. Very smart.
Daniella is confident, attentive and seems to understand what I am trying to accomplish with counseling.
Highly recommend! Dr. Jackson is thoughtful, patient, kind, and has helped me tremendously! I can’t say thank you enough!
Dr. Jackson is extremely kind and thoughtful and offers expertise in a gentle way, while offering alternative perspectives to help you see that your personal situation can be managed. After having Dr. Jackson listen and guide me, I feel a lot more confident and capable than when I first started BetterHelp a year ago.
Dr. Jackson understands my issues and is very familiar with 12 step programs of which I am working (Alanon, CoDa, and ACA). This helps immensely, because many professionals aren't really aware of what these programs are for. She has gently lead me the way of self-discovery and for this I am very grateful.
Dr. Jackson is a really excellent therapist. She is also just a nice person. I really enjoy the sessions with her. It is a difficult time for me, and she is definitely a help with my situation.
Dr. Jackson is amazing! Once you have one session with her you won’t want to pick anyone else and she is the best hands down! She’s very understanding, she’s very caring, she listens and she gives great advice too.
An excellent therapist with a good set of advice for her patients. Very highly recommended!
Great at what she does.
Dr. Jackson is very caring, she asks questions based on things that are going on in your life and responds in a way that is reflective and insightful. When talking to her I feel as if she really does care and wants the best for her clients.
She's very knowledgeable and understanding.
Dr. Jackson is warm and kind. I appreciate her sense of humor and how very organized she is about scheduling. I am so grateful that her gentle guidance has already helped me to begin dismantling lifelong habits that have held me back in relationships.
Dr. Jackson is absolutely amazing within the hour we talk weekly! We have just finished our third session and I almost already feel like most of my issues are being solved. She continually offers encouragement, pointing out small steps I may be taking to better my situation. She also phrases suggestions in a way that I can best pick out what might help me, not simply telling me what to do. I have already recommended this site for my friends who could benefit from having someone to tell their problems to and receive help.
Dr. Jackson has been very helpful.
Dr. Jackson is amazing, and has helped me overcome some very difficult life bumps. A million thank you for all the help! So glad this service is now available online.
Dr Jackson has been a great help in getting through a difficult time and continues to provide support and encouragement as I begin the next chapter of my life.
She is super insightful and is constantly helping me understand and realize my true motivations for things I do. She tells me the truth even if it's not so easy to hear. She often points out something that makes me think, "Wow, she is so right! I didn't even think of that before!"
Dr. Jackson has been a God sent miracle. I started BetterHelp with another counselor that was just not available. Dr. Jackson's voice is soothing and I love the way she actively listens and asks the right questions for me to ponder. She responds to my written questions quickly. Her schedule is convenient. She's amazingly awesome!
Dr. Jackson has helped me so much with learning to cope with my family members' addiction problems as well as my own past addiction issues. She has also helped me understand various other obstacles in my life and has recommended many useful books and outside resources as well. Very knowledgeable and very caring counselor!
She is a very considerate, understanding and helpful person. She’s also very encouraging into making you realize your goals.
I just started working with Dr. Jackson but so far she has showed nothing but kindness and helpfulness. I am grateful to have her on my new journey to therapy.
She has been very helpful in allowing me to express my feelings. I think I need more of this in my life.
Dr. Jackson has help me so much , and my perspective of life and goals are now going the route I was looking for thank you so much!
Dr. Jackson is someone you can connect with right away, she is very professional, knowledgeable and caring. She understands my issues and finds practical ways to help me tackle them.
Dr. Jackson seems to always hit the nail on the head. With just the short amount of time I’ve known her I’ve made tremendous strides in myself and my relationship and I just can’t believe how perfect the match is between me and her. She always knows what to say and how to get me back grounded when I am freaking out.
Dr. Jackson is wonderful! She takes the time to really listen and understands what I'm going through!
Dr. Jackson has been helping so much. She really takes her time to talk to you, evaluate your situation, and she listens! She has great listening skills. And she provides you with lots of tools in between the sessions so you can be improving yourself and work on your issues. She recommended me very interesting books to help me cope with the issue I am having and she gives me very interesting "homework" that helps me to tackle my psychological problems and face them. I highly recommend Dr. Jackson to anyone that needs the help of a Mental Health Professional.
Dr. Jackson is professional yet personable. She has great insight into how emotions, thoughts, feelings, and general situations affect adults. She is wonderful at sorting out the patient's feelings and giving meaning to them.
Dr. Jackson is awesome!! I have already told a few people about BetterHelp and how much I like my counselor. She genuinely cares, listens, and gives the best advice / solutions. Thank you!!!
Dr. Jackson is extremely helpful in addressing my issues with a caring and respectful attitude. She is responsive to messages evening during the weekends. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Jackson is phenomenal! She's not only an encourager, she speaks truth with firm words but with a caring tone. It's obvious she sincerely cares!
