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 is very kind and doesn’t interrupt when you try to explain issues, instead she asks questions you didn’t think to ask yourself and is incredibly supportive about it.
