LPC-S, NCC, CEAP

Jackie graduated from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. She then completed her master’s degree from the University of North Texas, where she majored in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She has worked in several settings over the years, including crisis/mobile services, inpatient facilities, PHP/IOP programs, EAP settings, and outpatient services. Her extensive experience has helped guide her passion into assisting those struggling with anxiety, compassion fatigue, burnout, trauma, and grief. She holds the following license/certifications and specialized trainings:  

  • Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S)

  • National Certified Counselor (NCC)

  • Certified Employee Assistance Professional (CEAP)

  • Certified CliftonStrengths Coach

  • Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) trained

  • EMDRIA Certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Counselor

  • Gottman Levels I and II Trained

 

She has a big heart for working with first responders and their spouses, as she is a police wife herself and is aware of the nuances that come with being a member of the blue family. She also particularly enjoys working with medical professionals and has worked in a hospital setting for over 6 years. When she’s not being a counselor, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family, traveling, working out, a good Netflix series, and engaging in learning opportunities to enhance her counseling knowledge.  

"Empathy has no script. There is no right way or wrong way to do it. It's simply listening, holding space, withholding judgement, emotionally connecting, and communicating that incredibly healing message of 'you're not alone.'"

-Brene Brown
