She is very solution oriented without making you feel rushed. I really appreciate her attentiveness. She's helping undo YEARS of distorted perspective in ways I didn't know were possible. I legit lost my job, got a new one and signed up again so I could continue with her. The Best.

I am relatively new to therapy, but felt like I needed a professional to help me cope with my grief after the loss of my father due to COVID. I have always felt validated by Dr. Jackson and appreciate that she checks on me, helps me set mental health goals and is helping me learn to accept that I need to take care of myself for the sake of those that I care most about. I really enjoy talking to her and am so glad I found her!
