About Me

Life is ever changing that we can be sure of!

Hello, my name is Jackie and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Anger Resolution Therapist. I have a Masters of Science Degree in Social Work from the University of Texas. I have been helping people for over 20 years navigating through life's changes in the DFW area. Working with older teens and adults deal with depression, anxiety, anger, relationship challenges, grief and loss. I have helped families address a range of concerns that revolved around parenting issues, domestic violence, child abuse/neglect, substance abuse, self-esteem, and more.

My approach to therapy is client centered. My style is warm and engaging. I believe in the client taking an active part in the direction and depth of their therapeutic process. I draw on multiple treatment modalities to guide clients to their treatment goals including:

• Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) - I assist clients in exploring the dynamic between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to aid in discovering dysfunctional thought patterns which can lead to mood disorders and self-destructive behaviors.
• Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) - I teach and support clients in these skills: mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotion regulation.
• Solution-Focused Therapy - brief therapy aimed at focusing on solutions rather than problems.
• Rational Emotive Therapy - Challenging irrational beliefs that lead to psychological distress.

Self esteem is not static, it is ever changing by the decisions we make each and every day. Do you need help making better decisions, or someone to empower you?

I check my messages daily but it may take 2-4 days for me to digest your information and form a well thought out response. I prefer video calls because I get the most successful sessions and more interaction from them, but I will interact using the telecalls and messaging sessions, too. I require the standard 24 hours notice of cancellation of appointments. Thank You,
Jackie Parker, LCSW-CART

I look forward to working with you!

She’s been great! I worked with her over a few months and really got some helpful tips to deal with my daily struggles. I’m going to miss her!!

Jacqueline has been really helpful with talking through tough topics while coming from a place of empathy, understanding, and professionalism. She understands we are in a safe space and hears my versions of things, and gives me tools to handle tough situations w/out judgment. It's only been a couple of weeks, but I feel I am in a much better state of mind after having these sessions.

jackie is so wonderful & kind!

Written by C.E. on Oct 10, 2021 after therapy with Jacqueline for 3 months on issues concerning self esteem, and career difficulties

Sometimes it was difficult to find the words to share my concerns, and I would feel frustrated with my issues that I didn't know where to start, or whether it was even important to share. But this didn't last long at all with Jackie. She knows exactly how to ask to pull information out of me, and sometimes it felt as though she was reading my mind. The worksheets and articles she provided were perfect to help me deal with thoughts in between sessions. I feel a weight off my shoulder and more clear-minded than I have in months. Thank you so much!

Jackie’s counsel is a blessing I didn’t expect to receive and one I didn’t realize how desperately I needed.
Without fail, our weekly sessions would not only provide me with a place to decompress, but Jackie’s discourse would turn my venting into constructive self-analysis.
I left every session invigorated for whatever challenges the week ahead posed. If you’re looking for a quality therapist as well as a unexpectedly treasured friend, look no further.

In the short time I have been working with Jacqueline I really value and appreciate her help working through some difficult subjects.

This session was good and it helped realise that I am in my own way. I like the way she let me speak about my problems without interrupting.

Work with me!
