About 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.

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!

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.

Thank you. You were like a mother to me who is guiding her daughter who doesn't put her down and doesn't being discontent of her.
