Jaclyn writes: “I feel grateful to be working in collaboration with a group of incredibly skilled and deeply caring therapists, parent educators and wellness coaches. Together, we are dedicated to understanding the human condition and helping people to live well in the face of the adversity that life brings. My colleagues and I can work together to support you and your partner, or you and your family.

My schedule can sometimes get full with a waitlist, so if my schedule is full or does not align with yours, I can recommend one of the skillful and caring therapists on my team. You can then choose to either 1) set up a free 20 minute consultation or 2) schedule an initial 50-minute appointment with a therapist on our team to see if it is a good fit. If it is not a good fit for any reason, please let me know and I can recommend another therapist  for you.

If you are a health care provider, please reach out to connect. I enjoy getting to know other practitioners and would warmly welcome meeting for tea to learn more about your services.”
