Written by J.U. on Apr 05, 2021 after counseling with Monica for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and grief

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!

Even though we haven’t met via zoom yet, your words of affirmation and in touch methodology is helpful already!

I’m thankful for Dr. Jackson. She is very helpful, kind and supportive. She checks up on me daily, has me complete worksheets, gives me advice and shares techniques to help me cope with my stress and anxiety. She wants me to succeed and reach my goals. Above all, she’s always listening. Thank you Dr. Jackson.

Dr. Jackson has been very responsive. I feel like we have daily communication via the BetterHelp app which is much different then other sources of therapy.

Dr. Jackson has helped me tremendously. She hears me out and knows what to say to help me feel better and do better.

She knows me without knowing me. Thankful for her.
