Getting to Know

Mrs. Jackson

Relationship/Career/Family/Mind Body Spirit

Mrs. Jackson has an immense passion for children and families. Upon graduating from high school she attended the University of Georgia and in 2001 graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology. She obtained her Master’s degree in counseling psychology from the University of West Alabama in 2007, and later completed an add on certificate in School Guidance Counseling through the University of West Alabama as well.

 

Before becoming a therapist she spent 8 years working in the field of education where she developed her educational philosophy of “teaching the whole child,” realizing that more than what is presented at school defines who a child is. It is Mrs. Jackson’s belief that many of the reasons why children are not successful academically and socially stem from issues and or incidents that occur at home with their families.

 

As a result she entered into the Marriage and Family Therapy certification program at Argosy University in Atlanta, to obtain additional skills to be used in assisting families to create strategies that will eventually help the entire family succeed and reach their goals. In 2008 Mrs. Jackson completed this program and today is a certified marriage and family therapist. 


In 2017 Mrs. Jackson became a Master Addictions Counselor (MAC). She later earned her credentials as a Distance Credentialed Counselor (DCC) and Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor (CPCS) in 2018.
