Jackie is Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), who trained at Columbia University and participated in a rigorous post-graduate training program at the Ackerman Institute. She has been trained in various therapeutic approaches such as, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Parent and Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), and Relational Therapy for Couples and Families.
Her clinical training has allowed her to treat individuals who are struggling with various presenting problems such as, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma, behavioral problems, depression, motherhood, college stress and family conflict. Using CBT, guidance, and an insight oriented approach, she helps people work on their 'here and now' issues and when necessary examines how past experiences may be impacting present problems. She believes the relationship between the therapist and client is an important part of the therapy. Clients, colleagues, and supervisors describe her as warm and relatable helping people feel at ease in session. Jackie has been working with children, adolescents, adults, families and couples in private practice, mental health clinics, hospitals, and schools for over a decade.
