About Me

WELCOME to the platform! I thank you for learning more about me and my professional experience in counseling. First, let me congratulate your courage in seeking help. I am very proud of you. Life can be challenging sometimes--it just is!

Many emotions and states of being are completely normal in context to certain experiences —- depression, anxiety, hopelessness, frustration, confusion, and ambivalence. Still, you deserve to be happy and live your very BEST life! Let's see if we can work together and help you achieve your goals and explore your authentic self.

ABOUT ME: My name is Jacqui (pronounced
j-a-c-k-i-e) and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor and multistate licensed.

EDUCATION: I graduated with a Master's in Counseling with a concentration in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling from a CACREP university. I am currently a doctoral candidate (Ph.D.) in Marriage & Family Therapy.

EXPERIENCE: I have many years of counseling experience with a wide range of mental and emotional health concerns such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, career confusion/ discontentment, addiction, sexual orientation/gender issues, marital discord, family conflict, unresolved trauma, grief/loss and overall life challenges/transitions that may get in the way of us living our best lives.

What this means... I approach issues, concerns, life events and the counseling process from a systems-based and strengths perspective that is attuned to "patterns of being" that may keep us stuck in our unwanted emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and experiences.

I believe in focusing on one's strengths while offering validation of feelings as we work toward desired goals---and challenging with direct honesty where necessary. In addition, I am an integrative therapist using modalities such as trauma-informed care, emotionally focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, solution-focused, reality therapy, Law of Attraction theory, positive psychology, and systems theory to name a few (this is not an exhaustive list).

Sound okay thus far? Well, let's talk so you can get on your way to healing, feeling better in life, and leaning into your authenticity!

Written by L.A. on Apr 19, 2022 after therapy with Jacqueline for 2 years on issues concerning relationship issues, and trauma and abuse

I had a wonderful experience with Jacqui. In only a few sessions with her, I was able to make the life changing decision to leave my then abusive husband. I had tried many times for years before that and did not have the confidence and healthy self esteem to follow through. Jacqui reached me like no one else had been able to, with her warmth, ability to connect and her own life experiences. She gave me the confidence to believe that I deserved more in life. It has been almost 2 years and I really do have her to thank for living a life more full then I could have ever imagined before my sessions with her. Thank you Jacqui!

Written by M.I. on Dec 06, 2021 after therapy with Jacqueline for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Jacqui is the human embodiment of warmth. She's seen me at my best and my worst but her voice and personality never fails to bring a smile to my face. When our session starts, I'm already feeling better. She has helped me in tangible ways and intangible ways through great transitions in life. She identifies strengths and areas that need work without judgment, and connects with you in a way that feels personal and meaningful. She doesn't sugar-coat when she needs to point out work that needs to be done, but she does it when I can take it and when I know I can do that work. I truly love that.

Shws absolutely amazing. Especially going as far as wanting to learn about my culture

Written by M.A. on Sep 21, 2021 after therapy with Jacqueline for 2 months on issues concerning depression, and coping with life changes

Jacqui is very kind and understanding. I immediately felt comfortable with her and I am a guarded person. She’s very timely and thoughtful with her responses. I recommend Jacqui she’s a 10/10

Great listener and an all round great therapist specialising in so much

Written by M.A. on Jul 21, 2021 after therapy with Jacqueline for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and trauma and abuse

Jacqui Hayes is a wonderful counselor with a wealth of knowledge and experience to support her clients to be the best versions of themselves. She is adaptive, reassuring and gentle to the natural flows the experience of therapy can have. I can not recommend her highly enough as a counselor for all the support and guidance she provides.

Written by E.R. on May 30, 2021 after therapy with Jacqueline for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Jacqui is a breath of fresh air, I'm grateful for being able to work with her a second time as her counseling style works perfectly for me. After each session, I feel like I'm able to walk away and successfully do the work that's needed. And she's the only person that can help get me together without the feeling of being chastised or judged like friends and family. I enjoy that we can laugh through our conversations it makes every thing easier.

I love how Jacqui listens to what I’m going through and is so encouraging and affirming. I appreciate that she respects me where I am. Thank you Jacqui.

Written by M.A. on Dec 21, 2020 after therapy with Jacqueline for 8 months on issues concerning relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Jacqui takes the time to listen thoroughly and allows space before she responds while in session, she is letting us come to the conclusions and helps to guide us to them.

Written by S.T. on Nov 11, 2020 after therapy with Jacqueline for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Jacqui is caring, attentive and experienced.

Written by D.R. on Sep 24, 2020 after therapy with Jacqueline for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I felt comfortable and safe with Jacqui almost immediately - in addition to having a calm approachability she knows what leading questions to ask to guide me in the right direction. Particularly with substance abuse issues - I've truly never had the success in sobriety AND recovery that I now have through working with Jacqui. Navigating sober life is scary and new but Jacqui gives me the guidance and confidence to know I can succeed.

Written by A.L. on Jul 19, 2020 after therapy with Jacqueline for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Jacqui has been incredibly supportive and insightful. My life is better because of her guidance.

All good no complaints!

Written by K.A. on May 04, 2020 after therapy with Jacqueline for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Jacqui is incredible at delivering information and validating feelings. I am an extremely sensitive person and find it very hard to be vulnerable but she manages to balance the truthfully hard work of therapy with the ability to nurture and encourage.

Written by R.A. on Apr 17, 2020 after therapy with Jacqueline for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

I really like her, shes flexible with my routines and timelines and gets back to me with helpful advise pretty quickly. All in all I've enjoyed working with her.

Written by P.A. on Feb 11, 2020 after therapy with Jacqueline for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, lgbt, relationship issues, grief, and coping with life changes

I have only spoken with her once. I cried most of the time. She was a good listener!

Work with me!
