SERVICES & FEES
MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELING
Therapy is a true investment in yourself. My fee for each 60 minute therapy session is $100. I do not accept insurance at this time. I believe that access to quality mental health care is a right, not a privilege, and I understand that paying for therapy out of pocket can be difficult. For this reason, I offer sliding scale options based on income and ability to pay. If you feel called to engage in therapy with me but cannot cover my standard fee please reach out to discuss options.
Much of the progress experienced in therapy is dependent upon the therapeutic relationship and sometimes it's tough to find the right fit. I offer an initial 20-minute phone or video consultation at no charge to discuss current challenges and goals for therapy before scheduling the first session. Please visit the FAQs for testimonials graciously provided by a few of the clients I have had the privilege to work with in therapy.
I welcome the opportunity to work with common experiences such as Depression, Anxiety and Adjustment Disorders. I also specialize in supporting clients who are seeking help with more specific needs, as listed below.
AREAS OF EXPERTISE:
Addiction Recovery (substance abuse, love addiction, codependency)
Borderline Personality Traits
Shame / Self Worth / Self Esteem
Perfectionism / Type A Characteristics
Dysfunctional Relationship with Food / Body Image Distress
Trauma (complex, developmental, relational, attachment and shock/event-based)
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based treatment that has been effective in the healing and reprocessing of emotional pain from distressing life events. EMDR helps to remove the blockage keeping emotional wounds from healing, assisting the mind in reprocessing emotional trauma much like how the body heals from physical trauma. For more information on EMDR, please visit the Resources page.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a skills-based treatment with a primary goal of teaching clients how to live a life worth living. DBT is an evidence-based treatment for individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder, though DBT skills are used in the treatment of a variety of diagnoses including: ADHD, Eating Disorders, Bipolar Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, PTSD and Substance Use Disorders. For more information on DBT, please visit the Resources page.
Neuro Affective Relational Model (NARM) is a developmentally-oriented and neuroscientifically-informed approach to address unresolved Complex Trauma (C-PTSD) while restoring connection to self and others. NARM works with unconscious attachment patterns that stem from relational, developmental and attachment trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). For more information on NARM, please visit the Resources page.
Telehealth is a platform that offers quality therapy with extra convenience. Telehealth allows clients to engage in the same authentic counseling experience from the comfort of their home, office, car or wherever! I understand that traveling to an office can add stress and extra time to an already busy life. I use a HIPAA compliant secure video conferencing platform that makes online therapy convenient and completely confidential. Many clients find that attending therapy from the comfort of their own space provides a layer of safety that is not accessible in someone else's office. All that is required for Telehealth is an electronic device (smart phone, tablet, laptop, computer, etc) and a private space with a stable internet connection. Paperwork, payment and scheduling are all completed online. For detailed information on how to join a Telehealth session through the secure platform that my clients and I use, please click here.

HOLISTIC HEALTH COACHING
I offer a holistic approach to health and wellness, meaning that I help clients understand how seemingly unrelated areas of life are actually connected such as nutrition, relationships, health, career, finances and environment. Inspired by my professional training and personal experiences, I help clients make dietary and lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results. My Holistic Health Coaching Program is inspired by my training at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2012.
I help clients understand how to live in accordance with their body's needs. Meaningful long term change takes time and my approach is not one of those lose-50-pounds-in-two-weeks gimmicks. Instead, my gentle and guided approach supports long term change over time. I do not promise immediate weight loss results but clients do report noticeable improvements in energy, mood and vibrancy rather quickly. Below is a testimonial offered by a former Health Coaching client at the end of our work together:
"Jackie has the enthusiasm and commitment for living a healthy lifestyle. She has a passion for helping others to live a healthy lifestyle. Jackie has a tremendous amount of knowledge about food, nutrition, exercise and health. She motivates you to achieve your goals. What I really like about Jackie is the fact that she practices what she teaches. Through her coaching and support, I was able to quit smoking and enrich my diet. The result is increased energy and an overall felling of well-being. Thank you Jackie!"
My Holistic Health Coaching program is an all inclusive 13-session package including one on one 60-minute in-person or Telehealth sessions. The investment for the 13-session all inclusive package is $975 ($75/session). Payment plans are available.
The Holistic Health Coaching Program includes:
A total of 13 individual 60-minute sessions (either in-person or Telehealth)
One, three and six month goal setting

I am a believer that change requires stepping outside the comfort zone. So here's an invitation to break out of your comfort zone and take the necessary (uncomfortable, probably, but only at first) steps to living a better life.
