About Me

***Should you need an appt. earlier than what is listed, please message me***

I am a seasoned, experienced counselor that over the course of my career have dealt with many issues. During the course of my career I have worked in a private co-opted outpatient facility, an all girls residential treatment center, private practice, community outreach facilities, teen programs, private insurance providers, geriatric outpatient facilities and currently in a Christian based outpatient facility. I have trained and dealt/deal with the gamut of mental health, psychosocial, development, relationship, psychiatric, addiction, couple and family issues, to mention but a few.

My career has been diverse in population and eclectic in treatment, as has my accompanied training. I consider myself to be one of the most blessed individuals because I have wanted to be a mental health therapist since I was eight years old and have had and continue to have my life's desire in my career. I am Christian based but I believe everyone finds their way not by proselytizing but by love and acceptance of each one's own journey. I absolutely love what I do and feel passionate about helping and caring for others during their difficult time of life. I try very hard to answer all my 'messages' for active clients within 24/hours however, I do not answer messages on Saturdays or Sundays and catch up the week-ends on Monday mornings.

She’s a great listener and really knows what she’s talking about and makes you feel comfortable.

Jacqui helped navigate through my emotional bouts that I would get unexpectedly. She helped me understand why I was feeling a certain way and taught me different techniques to help me get through my panic attacks. I am grateful to her for all that she has done to help me navigate through some of my tough moments at work. Thank you Jacqui and God Bless You Always!

Jacqui is extremely attentive , I loved working with her. She is easy to talk to and helped me find issues that I had Not realized were issues.
Oh ,I really love the fact you can journal everyday and it's optional to share your journal with your therapist. I think that's such a great idea and it helped me one journy. I choose to share. If I have another rough patch I'm coming back here ! Grateful Thankful Blessed

Jacqui has such a warm and caring heart. She helped me feel understood and she intuitively picked up so much about my situation in such a short time. I’m very grateful for our sessions! She had me laughing and reflecting over the important aspects of a really difficult period I was going through. Thanks Jacqui!!!

Betterhelp did a great job matching me with Jacqui Chavez. Jacqui instinctively and professionally knew when to listen and when to speak. She asked pointed questions that caused me to think for myself and objectively see my situation. Jacqui has a kind demeanour and speaks from wisdom; a wisdom that comes from her profession, experience and life lived. I looked forward to every session and was rewarded with a caring smile and her sincere interest in my life. Many thanks.

Jacqui is a very gentle and comforting therapist. I had never done therapy before and despite the amount of emotional trauma I've had to work through over several month, she met me with encouragement and guidance every step of the way. It's been very beneficial for me!

Jacqui is a blessing! She has such a passion for what she does, is caring and so loving. Truly thankful for her!

Written by A.D. on Mar 17, 2022 after therapy with Jacqui for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Jacqui has been nothing but wonderful. So patient, so caring, she truly does care about her patients! She is straight to the point which is amazing, as so many therapists will keep you coming back week after week and leaving you feeling like you are not getting anywhere. This is not the case with Jacqui! She helped me through some major anxiety issues, and was nothing but helpful and supportive. She is amazing at returning messages as well! I would recommend her to all!

I like that Jacqui gives me a lot of "homework"; the recommended books she sent me have helped me a lot in orienting myself and digging deeper into my problems, and I'm grateful for her motivational messages as well every time I share a journal entry with her.

Jacqui Chavez listened and gave helpful advice based on her own experiences. She understands what you're going through and can empathize with you. I would recommend her to anyone needing someone to talk to and to help you through the hard times.

Jacqui is a wonderful therapist for me. She’s kind, warm, and caring while still teaching me accountability.

Written by M.A. on Nov 07, 2021 after therapy with Jacqui for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and family conflicts

She is an absolute blessing. I can’t thank God enough for sending her to me. She has helped me so much in just the little time I’ve been in therapy. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.

I’ve been very reluctant to try therapy again as I’ve had multiple bad experiences, over a decade, of both in person and online. BetterHelp offered a lot of bonuses, a price option that’s affordable to me, as well as chat therapy (I find writing down my thoughts keeps me on track and focused during a session, and I type fast) Anytime I start therapy I try to be as open and as direct as I can, because that seems to work best, for some reason /rhetorical. Jacqui instantly took this, asked for more necessary information and focused instantly on my goals. She also looked into what else may be affecting them, and my history. Our first session was 30 minutes of chat and I already felt like I was understood for my struggles and had some clear goals as well as a general hopefulness towards what we could accomplish together. Jacqui asks my boundaries every step of the way which I appreciate, whether it’s a boundary I do have or not (I don’t have many when approaching therapy). I’m very grateful for the opportunity to connect with Jacqui!

Written by A.L. on Oct 02, 2021 after therapy with Jacqui for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coaching, and adhd

I highly recommended Jacqui to anyone and everyone. She’s very easy to talk to and very attentive. I’ve never done any kind of therapy before so I was very iffy at first, but afterwards I very much do not regret the decision.

I’m just so incredibly grateful for Jacqui and all her joy, wisdom, and support she’s given me through one of my darkest times that now feels like a lifetime ago just after a few weeks! Everyone deserves a Jacqui in their lives. I’m beyond blessed our paths crossed and she is now in mine.
