I am a licensed marriage, family, and child counselor in the state of California. I have over 5 years of experience working as a psychiatric social worker in Monterey County. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar, trauma, relationship conflicts, parenting problems, career challenges, substance use, ADD/ADHD, and interpersonal issues. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma and/or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm, interactive, and direct. I believe in treating anyone with respect, empathy, and compassion, and I believe people are the experts of their own experiences and life. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing. I collaborate with individuals to discuss their needs, concerns, and developing treatment goals to help support and guide them through their journey to wellness.
You are not alone.
I look forward to working with you :)

Noralyn is great and a wonderful listener. She is supportive and encouraging.
She's great! Super kind, funny, keeps up with me, thinks about the things I say and then reacts to them rather than just going by a book with sets of questions to ask.

She sends me resources to help me even when I don't have sessions.
She has been a tremendous help to me. She asks me very insightful questions and provides deep analysis in our sessions. It is my first time doing therapy and I didn't feel awkward speaking my truth to her even from our first meeting. She truly embodies the goal that therapy sets out to achieve. 10 out of 10, would recommend her to anyone.
She has been helping manage a break up and realize that I was in a abusive relationship emotionally.
She is amazing
Noralyn has been such amazing support throughout my quest to improve my mental health. She helped me uncover a lot of feelings and trauma that I thought I had definitely overcome but had just buried deep down. She validated my feelings and concerns and gave me different sets of tools until we found some that worked for me. She is realistic about goal setting and honestly such a great person to talk things over. 10/10 would recommend.

Noralyn is amazing. She’s been wonderful and supportive and can speak in the way I need to hear even if I don’t realize it myself! She’s always been there and went well way above and beyond any job to really be helpful. I don’t know how she does everything she does, she’s basically a superhero.
Noralyn has been great so far! We have only had a few sessions but I have found her insights really valuable and I feel like she has given me some tools already to be able to make positive changes in my life.
We’ve only had the one session but I felt listened to. She also checked in with me between appointments which is unexpected and really nice. I think we will work hard but get results.
I find Noralyn to be very empathetic and she really helps get to the heart of the issues.
Very nice, professional and skilled counselor.

Noreen has been great so far and I look forward to working with her more
She's a wonderful listener who can pull things out I didn't know were pertinent
Noralyn is the 3rd counselor I have been “paired” with on betterhelp. I immediately felt comfortable speaking with her! It was as if she was a long time friend. I feel She has a level of understanding that no other previous counselor has had for my specific problems and general struggles. I feel that she absolutely cares as a individual and truly wants to be part of a healthy healing process for not only myself but probably for all of her clients. I would absolutely recommend her to any close friends or family. Everyone deserves to be paired with a counselor that makes them feel comfortable and listened to the way noralyn does for me.
Noralyn is awesome!!! In just a few sessions we have worked through so much.
She is constantly available through messaging and is super responsive. I consider myself very lucky to have been matched up with Noralyn! Hope to continue having sessions as long as possible.
Noralyn is a wonderful counselor, I would strongly recommend her to anyone. She’s very intuitive & one can really tell she truly cares about her job. She’s exactly where she needs to be.
Can’t say enough good things about Noralyn. She’s empathetic and relatable and empowers me to work through my problems and understand myself in new ways. Developing a trusting relationship with her is so easy thanks to her warmth and openness.
i have only done one session with Ms Jackson but it was a good one and i am happy to continue to work with her.
Noralyn really listened and helped me on my issue. She also shared great exercises to work thru my anxiety.
Just started my journey here, first time seeking a therapist and it’s too early on for a review. So far I feel safe and Nora listens attentively! Looking forward to more time with her
My counselor has been great ever sense our first session. Her advice and energy is awesome. I look forward to sticking with her throughout my journey.
I love Noralyn. I feel like she gets me and makes me feeling completely comfortable like I can tell her anything. No judgments.
10/10 cured my depression
So far the experience of both the Better Help app and Noralyn specifically has been absolutely wonderful and I would strongly recommend both.
Noralyn has been an excellent counselor. She listens. She truly listens. She gives me space to express myself while nudging me along my path. This has been a great experience and I recommend Noralyn.
Noralyn is very sweet and easy to talk to. I felt immediately comfortable with her. She’s very aware and able to see my emotions during the session and give me exercises to calm down, that I can also use for the future.
Noralyn is working with me on a life changing event. She is helping me with the stress of the situation and providing valuable tools to assist.
A very good listener and offers good advice
