About me

I am a therapist offering more than 20 years of experience helping my clients with a variety of issues. My area of specialty is trauma treatment. I hold certifications in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and advanced clinical trauma treatment. I am a Certified Integrative Mental Health Provider and this allows me to use a combination of traditional evidence-based practices along with holistic approaches for overall wellness. A person's mental health is influenced by many different factors both internal and external. Our mental health can be influenced by our stress, our lack of connectedness to others, our diet, sleep issues, painful past experiences, and our environment. My skillset allows me to provide therapy that helps my clients reach all of their identified goals for wellness and quality of life.

Daphne Jakstis helped me pull my life back on track. What more can I say? She is wise, thoughtful & kind. Her method of approach is practical; I was hesitant to seek help as I believed it would be an exploration of my entire life. Instead, Dr Jakstis gave me the tools needed to get through one more day. The relief was substantial & I have learned to incorporate these tools into my daily life when needed. She has been a gift to me.

I have only been with Daphne for a few weeks now, but I absolutely love it. I have not been a fan of therapy in the past, Daphne has made me feel comfortable and confident during our sessions. I’m excited to continue working with her.

Daphne is the best therapist that I have worked with. She works with me to question the thought patterns that have been causing stress and anxiety in my life, and does a fantastic job at helping me recognize those patterns that I was previously oblivious to. Thank you, Daphne.

Daphne is a caring and skilled therapist. She listens to me, offers up strategies, and validates my feelings. One thing I like about her most is while she listens to me and gives me appropriate responses, she doesn't sugar coat anything when it comes to my anxiety. She is matter of fact and always seems to ease my worries and gives me something to work on until our next meeting.

Work with me!
