Written by R.E. on Nov 09, 2021 after therapy with Jacqueline for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, eating disorders, and compassion fatigue

Jackie has been enormously helpful in coaching me in having a plan, and a clear praxis for response when things don't go according to my hopes and plans. She has been attentive, asked meaningful questions and all in all been a fantastic thinking coach.

I really value our sessions together.
