Jacqueline Baiada

(MSW, LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Therapist licensed in North Carolina with more than 20 years of experience working with adults, couples and families in a variety of settings.

I have worked with people with a wide range of concerns including various types of trauma such as emotional, physical and sexual abuse, anger issues, depression, grief and loss, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems and PTSD.

My counseling style is caring and challenging. I believe that caring about your fellow human beings is the only way to built relationships with the people you work with in counseling, and without being challenged I believe that we cannot make changes.

My approach combines the brief solution focused, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral and narrative models but I will tailor our work together to meet your specific needs.

It takes courage to reach out and to take the first step towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to walk with you.

She has changed my life. Jacqueline has to be one of if not the best therapist this site has to offer. She is tough but compassionate, and I have achieved things with her help that I used to only dream of.

Written by S.H. on Nov 03, 2018 after counseling with Jacqueline for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and grief

I have a complicated relationship issue and Jacqueline was there listening to me and understanding. She is very nice and talking to her soothed me and did provide some insight, plus she is not the judgmental type. I'm glad I got to work with her.

Jacqueline brings a lot of clinical expertise to her counseling. She is supportive in the best way; a balance of empathy and direct feedback.

Written by T.A. on Sep 20, 2018 after counseling with Jacqueline for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

I like her. She is not only a good listener but also a good therapist. She listens and gives a reasonable amount of advice which is so helpful for me. She understands what I say, and when she doesn't, she tries to understand it by asking questions in a thoughtful and considerate way. I'm impressed by her sessions so far.

I have only been working with Jacqueline for two weeks, but I am very pleased! She has listened to the kind of support I was seeking and offers it. She listens and offers clear, direct questions/points to think about and actionable steps that I can try. I highly recommend!

Written by H.A. on Jul 31, 2018 after counseling with Jacqueline for 1 month on issues concerning relationship, and family

Jacqueline is absolutely amazing. She came into my life at a very troubling time and guided me through it delicately. She was able to help me through my relationship issues and my family issues by allowing me to see many different perspectives on the issues. She’s very compassionate and understanding and was able to appreciate my middle eastern background conflicting with my westernized relationship.

11/10. Would therapy again.

Jacqueline has been an excellent counsellor. She is prompt with her replies, and she provides practical ideas to solve issues. She also provides a gentle insight into how another person may view a situation. Thanks for your assistance, Jacqueline.

Written by A.N. on Dec 18, 2017 after counseling with Jacqueline for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related

I will be very happy to resume counseling with Jacqueline in the future.

Written by K.A. on Aug 24, 2017 after counseling with Jacqueline for 5 months on issues concerning relationship, and family

Jacqueline rocks! She keeps it real, allows me to voice my feelings, listens objectively, and responds accordingly. She is patient, she is positive, she offers sound advice and gives tasks to complete to assist in patching up my marriage. We've done messages and do weekly phone conversations. I appreciate all she has done and all she continues doing to assist me in the balance I am seeking.

Written by S.O. on Aug 03, 2017 after counseling with Jacqueline for 1 month on issues concerning relationship, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and anger

My husband and I turned to Jacqueline for a very personal matter. As middle-aged newlyweds, we wanted to deal with this little bud of a problem before it blossomed into something bigger. Our relationship with Jacqueline was brief, but only because she gave us something to take away to think about - each of us - and that's what we did. We thought and we talked, and all is good. Jacqueline made it very easy for us to discuss the most intimate of issues - she was very easy to talk to. We are very pleased that we reached out to Jacqueline.

Written by K.E. on Jul 27, 2017 after counseling with Jacqueline for 4 weeks on issues concerning relationship, and intimacy-related

I was matched with Jacqueline and we corresponded for about a month. She helped me better deal with an alcoholic in my life, and reminded me of ways to interact with him to improve our relationship. I was very pleased with her communication style and frequency, and I felt that she truly cared, even though we would never meet in person. She seems like a very compassionate person, and I am glad that I matched with her. Thank you, Jacqueline!

Written by J.A. on Jul 17, 2017 after counseling with Jacqueline for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and sleeping

Well I have been working with Jacqueline for over 6 months. She is very insightful and honest. I have come along way thanks to her. If I lived closer, I would reach out to do one-on-one counseling. Thank you for putting your heart and sole into your job.

She is the best in every aspect!

Written by M.A. on Jun 20, 2017 after counseling with Jacqueline for 9 months on issues concerning relationship, family, and parenting

Jacqueline is very attentive to my needs and very responsive. She is proactive in her approach to counseling and provides sound advice.

Written by K.A on Mar 26, 2017 after counseling with Jacqueline for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, and family

I am learning from my sessions with Jacqueline. She's direct and I respond best to people who are direct. When I signed up, I asked for a male therapist to perhaps have a better understanding (if there is such a thing) of men's thought process (like my husband's). She's doing well with being objective and direct.

Written by J.A on Mar 04, 2017 after counseling with Jacqueline for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and sleeping

I have read the other reviews. Every person that wrote a testament with their time with Jacqueline is everything I would say and much more. I have been in counseling for 2 yrs now. Tried several different treatments. I have made huge progress. I have thrown A LOT out to Jacqueline. She has not missed anything. Very attentive. I am extremely grateful she has agreed to help me. I was feeling hopeless. I found some hope working with her.
Thank you.

Written by M.E on Feb 27, 2017 after counseling with Jacqueline for 2 months

Jaqueline helped me understand that I needed to take my problems more seriously and not be so hard on myself. It was very helpful to have someone listening to my story and telling me that it wasn't my fault.

Written by A.N on Feb 14, 2017 after counseling with Jacqueline for 1 month on issues concerning relationship, family, grief, intimacy-related, sleeping, and self esteem

Jacqueline is very compassionate and understanding. She is straightforward with her advice and insights. She helped me to talk through some difficult things at one of the most difficult times in my life and fit that I will always be grateful.

Written by A.L on Jan 16, 2017 after counseling with Jacqueline for 2 days on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, family, eating, and self esteem

Besides being empathetic and really professional Jacqueline was friendly and kind on the phone. I'd love to have a conversation with her again. Really personal and a very good listener.

Written by R.O on Jan 12, 2017 after counseling with Jacqueline for 2 days on issues concerning depression, relationship, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, sleeping, and anger

The time reading Jacqueline's advice has been very helpful and friendly. This has put me in a place where I can think clearly and make advised decisions. I will use it wisely. The venting has meant the most. Thank you, your expertise has been invaluable!

Written by S.C on Jan 05, 2017 after counseling with Jacqueline for 2 months on issues concerning lgbt, relationship, intimacy-related, and self esteem

My experience with Jacqueline Baiada has been very positive. It only took a short time for her to make me feel comfortable talking about personal issues that I have had a hard time discussing with other counselors. She has helped me be more confident and have a lot less social anxiety. I feel that she really cares about people.

Written by M.A on Nov 30, 2016 after counseling with Jacqueline for 4 days on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, and family

I worked with Jacqueline for about a week and she has been extremely helpful and straight forward. No judging, very practical and has thus helped me move forward with my decisions.

She is very friendly and attentive to detail. Definitely a great person to work with!!!

Written by B.R on Nov 19, 2016 after counseling with Jacqueline for 3 days on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, and trauma and abuse

Jacqueline was a pleasure to work with and was extremely helpful, kind, and understanding. She addressed all of my concerns, was patient, gave me concrete advice and action items, and provided me with immense help and stress relief for my relationship issues. I feel healthier and better able to address my situation thanks to Jacqueline. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Written by S.C on Nov 07, 2016 after counseling with Jacqueline for 2 days on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I worked with Jacqueline Baiada for 1 week on issues regarding love, past shame and some problems in my current life. Jacqueline was nothing but kind, attentive, compassionate and extremely helpful. She is very open-minded and non-judgemental, I felt the entire time I could tell her anything and she would respond with deep empathy and understanding. She tells you the truth always, and will kindly let you know when she thinks you are making an error in your thinking and your actions. Even though I only had a week with Jacqueline, I got an incredible amount out of our sessions because she is so knowledgeable and holds such great wisdom when it comes to human behaviour. She was super professional but it was also like talking with a friend, someone loving and personable and warm. Her priority is developing the relationship between her and her client, and she was very open when I asked her anything about herself, offering stories and wisdom from her own journey in life. I am very grateful for the immense time and support Jacqueline has given me, she is a truly wonderful counsellor who can help guide you through any hard stages in life.

Written by M.E on Oct 30, 2016 after counseling with Jacqueline for 1 week on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, and self esteem

I would definitely recommend Jacqueline as she is a very open minded person with obvious experience in the dynamics of this world. She knows how to show care how to be friendly and helpful and at the same time stay professional. She is down to earth and been a like minded fellow human being to me which really contributed to my ability being open with her with this understanding and unjudging manner of communication. So if you are looking for someone who will dedicate time and invest themselves in assisting you while feeling like having a friend, then Jacqueline with the 21 years of experience is definitely the counselor for you!

Written by M.A on Oct 18, 2016 after counseling with Jacqueline for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

I was skeptical at first about the online therapy. After a few times corresponding with Jacqueline she made it very easy for me to open up about things I normally wouldn't have. My comfort with her allowed her to help me deal with my issues, past and current, and has made me grow so much as a person and heal properly in ways I hadn't for many many years. She even has worksheets that are helpful and snippets of wisdom I commonly find myself jotting in my planner for reminders :)

Written by R.E on Sep 21, 2016 after counseling with Jacqueline for 2 days on issues concerning relationship, and intimacy-related

Jacqueline was wonderful as I was picking up the pieces resulting a recent breakup from a long term relationship. She was compassionate and supportive throughout and I appreciate all she has done for me.

Jacqueline has been very helpful to me throughout this process.

Written by J.A on Sep 12, 2016 after counseling with Jacqueline for 2016 years and 9 months

Jacqueline is definitely a great counselor with professional skills. I highly recommend Jacqueline to others for the following reasons. Throughout the counseling, I felt very comfortable to talk with Jacqueline about my relationship, stress, and anxiety, she made the conversation friendly and comfortable. Additionally, her recommendations are down to earth and easy to reach, those made me feel that it is not that hard for me make things better. Jacqueline is really a very good counselor and a friend.

Jacqueline is very supportive and asks good questions and offers helpful solutions.

Written by L.I on Jul 19, 2016 after counseling with Jacqueline for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, intimacy-related, and depression

Jacquline is an exceptional counsellor and friend.
She is genuine, supportive and ACTUALLY cares. I had a counsellor before her who said she will "think about it and get back to me", who thereafter disappeared for 6 days.

I was ready to quit counseling until I was assigned to Jacquline, who reached out to me with two messages before I had a chance to reply.

The reason why I would recommend Jacquline to others is that she is not afraid to correct you when you are thinking wrongly. She doesn't support maladaptive thinking, but she also understands other peoples circumstances and is super empathetic.

Furthermore, Jacquline not only talks to me, but she provides worksheets and modules of methods to help ease anxiety. She has specific instructions of what to do in specific circumstances, and how to practice overcoming anxiety. She's really down to earth and I recommend anyone to her.

Hence, I hope anyone who needs help will find her. As long as you are ready to challenge yourself, and ready for change, you'll love her!!

Written by M.I on Jul 01, 2016 after counseling with Jacqueline for 1 week on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, eating, sleeping, self esteem, anger, career, and depression

Jacqueline is a nice therapist with great wisdom and kindness. She has helped me in a comfortable way and guided me to accept myself better. I appreciate the opportunity to meet her and talk with her. She never regards me as a patient but more like a friend. She makes me more much more relaxed and confident. I really appreciate the time with her.

Written by D.A on Jun 05, 2016 after counseling with Jacqueline for 3 months on issues concerning intimacy-related, eating, and self esteem

Jacqueline has a very professional manner, but informal, that is comfortable and reassuring. I feel as if her perspective has been very helpful to me in trying to assess my own.

Written by F.E on May 04, 2016 after counseling with Jacqueline for 2 days on issues concerning relationship

Jacqueline has been helpful and gave me a good advice! Feels better pouring out my feelings and telling her what've been through.
