JaCoyia Jackson, LLMFT
Practicing in Cascade
JaCoyia is a limited license Marriage and Family Therapist. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Howard University, as well as a Master’s of Family Therapy from the School of Medicine at Mercer University. JaCoyia has been practicing individual and relational therapy since 2015. She has spent the last several years working with persons with substance misuse concerns in a community-based setting. She also has previous experience with working with families that have experienced trauma utilizing Trauma-Focused CBT. JaCoyia is passionate about relational dynamics and believes that as social beings, most human problems are largely relational in nature.
“One of the aspects I love most about therapy, as a therapist and full disclosure, as a client: being truly seen. Therefore, I strive to create a safe, and comfortable environment for my clients to be themselves. One way I do this is by recognizing the human experience. I am a humanist at my core, which simply put means: I believe in everyone’s potential for potential. Life is so dynamic, it is filled with joyous moment that light up your inner world, and experiences that cause the deepest wounds.
My approach combines a person-centered approach that is founded in a systemic lens, with aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy, structural family therapy, mindfulness, and emotionally focused therapy. In between all those clinical terms, I approach therapy as a fellow human. I take time to get to know you as a unique individual and will consistently remind you that you are significant and that what you feel, what you do, what you think, all makes sense when placed in context. It is my belief that YOU are the expert of your life, and I would be honored to explore your human experience with you, as a fellow traveler on this journey called life.”
