Love is not what we become but who we already are.

A Note From Jackie:

Once I return from maternity leave, I am shifting the way in which I offer my therapy services. Beginning Fall of 2018, I will be specializing in Counseling for Women specifically.  The therapy experiences that I offer will be centered around women’s specific needs and the focus will be on HEALING through EMBODIED LIVING. 

What brings you to the therapy process is just the threshold to the deeper experience of self actualization and growth that will occur.  Alongside of individual sessions, clients will be invited to participate in a myriad of group process experiences that will be offered in the fall and spring. These will be completely optional but highly encouraged if it seems to be in the client’s best interest. I have found that health and wholeness happens exponentially in a group (especially circles of women) because even though the details of our lives may be unique and dynamic, the root of what’s needed to heal often times is the same. Connection, Belonging and Empowerment will be the impetus to our journey.  Not only can the group experience enhance the healing process but this will also offer a more cost effective opportunity for the client to be seen more often with less impact on their finances. 

I do not accept insurance. Although it is important to me that everyone has access to these services, there are some reasons in particular that I have decided not to proceed forward with that journey with the client’s best interest as motivation. You can read more about the reasons why I do not accept insurance below. 

Those who wish to join in the group process without individual therapy will be welcomed and assessed on a case by case basis. Depending on the group process, each client will be required to meet with Jackie at least once for an intake so that both client and therapist can engage in dialogue about their interest and readiness for that particular group process. Any educational/experiential workshops will be open to all without an intake. This will be specified in the details of the Workshop/Group Process that will be posted on our website and Facebook page. 

When any experience of body, heart, or mind keeps repeating in consciousness, it is a signal that this visitor is asking for a deeper and fuller attention.

holisitic counseling

Are you searching for answers to a specific question or have a yearning in general that just can’t seem to be quenched?  Are you a deep thinker, feeler and find relationships and life overwhelming at times?  Curious in counseling, but hesitate going to a traditional office setting?  

After a decade of offering therapy, Jackie is grateful to offer this non-traditional way of offering a comfortable environment and personable connection to open up a safe space for you to discover what it is you have been seeking.  Jackie specializes in Counseling for women specifically and the work is centered around women’s specific needs.  Keeping the whole person in mind, Jackie believes that everyone has the capacity to heal themselves and simply need a supportive and unbiased mirror to see the “medicine” within their own being.  

I utilize a variety of methods in being with you as you journey through life; including, depth psychology, mindfulness and other evidenced based theories. As we connect in session, you will receive authentic expression and a deeply humanistic approach - where you are not just another client, but someone who is deeply cared about and believed in. Real conversation and a comfortable, laid back environment fosters the trust and openness that leads to your transformation.

equine psychotherapy

One of the ways in which both individual and group experiences are offered at {be}Studio is through Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. EAP is a team approach to healing through the power of story, experiences and connection with horses. The facilitators, client(s) and horse enter into a storyboard of healing that is open, spacious and directed by the client. Horses are powerful mirrors to feeling and being with what is most true inside of our own hearts.

Group Therapy, Workshops and Collective Healing

Alongside of individual sessions, you are invited to participate in a myriad of group process experiences that are offered throughout the year.  Because even though the details of our lives may be unique and dynamic, the root of what’s needed to heal often times is the same, I have found that health and wholeness happens exponentially in a group (especially circles of women - which have had an immense healing impact since the beginning of time). Connection, Belonging and Empowerment will be the impetuses to our journey.  

Those who wish to join in the group process without individual therapy will be welcomed and assessed on a case by case basis.  Depending on the group process, each client will be required to meet with Jackie at least once for an intake so that both client and therapist can engage in dialogue about their interest and readiness for that particular group process.   Any educational/experiential workshops will be open to all without an intake.  This will be specified in the details of the Workshop/Group Process that will be posted on our website and Facebook page. 

Benefits of Group Therapy:

Groups provide support. Hearing from others with similar issues helps you see that you’re not alone in having challenges. Groups help you remember that you are not alone. 

Groups provide a sounding board. Hearing from other people can be very beneficial, specifically when it is facilitated in a way that fosters healthy giving and receiving feedback. You will receive a wider range of perspectives and help you relate to the problems more effectively.

Groups offer an “in the moment” opportunity to explore how you relate to the world around you.

Groups teach you about yourself. Every other person in the group, not just the facilitator, offers a mirror for you to see yourself and therein offer a pathway to understanding your experience more intimately. By utilizing “mirrors” through other people or situations, we uncover the blind spots that may be blocking your ability to overcome your problems.

Group therapy costs less than individual counseling. Group therapy is much more cost effective in that you receive more sessions and experiences for same or less financial investment.

Mindfulness has to do with examining who we are, with questioning our view of the world and our place in it, and with cultivating some appreciation for the fullness of each moment we are alive. Most of all, it has to do with being in touch.
