My name is Becky Jacobson, and I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Florida and Utah. I have over 15 years of experience. I grew up overseas, and spent most of my early years in India, where my parents worked. Being raised in another country has made me interested in and open to working with other cultures.
Having always been interested in counseling, I made a midlife career change, and have found it personally rewarding. My internship was with a community mental health agency, after which I went to work with a medical agency serving Medicare and Hospice patients and families. I have been blessed to work with all age groups, from 5 year olds to 95 year olds!
My main focus of practice has been grief therapy and bereavement counseling, but all my clients have presented with many additional concerns such as anxiety, depression, family conflicts, relationship and stress related issues, caregiver fatigue, finding purpose, and learning to navigate a multitude of life's challenges.
The counseling style I use is warm, empathic, conversational and interactive. My goal is to develop trust and rapport and maintain a mutual understanding and connection with my clients.
Cognitive-behavioral, solution focused, and person centered are the types of therapy that I utilize. I find great joy in empowering clients to make positive changes and overcome challenges they may be facing!
Due to licensing regulations, I am only able to work with clients who physically reside in the state of Florida or Utah, and are currently in that state.
Additional areas of focus: Family conflicts, Parenting issues, Self esteem, Depression, ADHD, Aging and Geriatric Issues, Blended Family Issues, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Codependency, Communication Problems, Control Issues, Divorce and Separation, Emptiness, Family Problems, Forgiveness, Guilt and Shame, Hospice and End of Life Counseling, Isolation / Loneliness, Life Purpose, Midlife Crisis, Self-Love, Women's Issues, Workplace Issues, Young Adult Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy
