About Us

Meet Jackie: Psychotherapist & Life Coach

Looking back on my life, I haven’t always felt as empowered as I do now. I had to learn to break old patterns, change my self-limiting beliefs, rebuild the life I truly wanted, and focus on being true to myself; my authentic self.

(5/5 from all clients)

I was in your shoes.

With my help, you’ll come out on the other side stronger than ever before.

While I’m proud of how far I’ve come, it wasn’t easy to get here. You’ve heard me say this before: I had to learn to break old patterns, change my self-limiting beliefs, rebuild the life I truly wanted, and focus on being true to myself, my authentic self. I had to heal my relationship with myself to truly understand what balance, living, and appreciation of life truly meant. I have always believed that life has meaning, that there is a purpose for everything, and there’s a reason behind every lesson we have to learn.

Through my own hardships (and I’ve had many), I was able to shift my perception of life and focus my energy and intent on ways of healing, succeeding, and embracing the life I wanted to create. As I journey through life, I see more and more of the struggle in our society and people’s lives.

My commitment is to help you navigate the path to success in life, in relationships, and your career while staying true to your authenticity. I don’t just coach; I collaborate, empower, challenge and guide you toward achieving your unique goals because I know your strengths, desire, willpower, and authenticity are your greatest assets.

My intention and priority is to help guide you through difficult times with support, encouragement, self-discovery, and healing. Working together will allow you to rewrite the story of your life and truly find your best, authentic self.
