About me

Hi! My name is Hilary Jacques. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I received my Bachelor’s degree in 2006 from Florida Atlantic University and a Master’s Degree in Social Work (MSW) in 2008.

I have training in Play Therapy, Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Filial Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy, Art Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Brazelton Touchpoints, Infant Mental Health, and Triple P (Positive Parenting Program).

There is an African proverb that says, “It takes a village to raise a child.” I am passionate about working with Mothers (including other important caregivers) of the “village” and their children, adolescents, and teens. I work with families who have experienced trauma/PTSD and stress.

During our first appointment, we will have a conversation about the presenting symptoms/behaviors, personal and family history, treatment goals and expectations. We meet as often as we agree to for therapy to talk/play about life experiences, have fun, connect, learn, develop a toolkit of coping skills and calming techniques, and explore and try out new things.

Sounds like a great plan! I look forward to meeting with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Hilary Jacques. 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.

I really lucked out finding Ms Hilary as a therapist. She's incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. We share similar life experiences which really helps while I'm on this journey to self improvement. She has a way of explaining things so I understand. And if I don't catch on right away, she is able to find another way. She's very understanding and flexible. As a first timer in therapy, she's made it very easy to open up. Better Help in general offers an awesome amount of resources for users, and I really enjoy the journaling & thought provoking prompts. I'm very grateful for Hilary and all she's helped me to understand of myself as a mother and person, and of others.
