Specialties & Expertise
Attachment issues and Complex trauma.
I am passionate about helping people find inner healing in a way that makes them feel heard and accepted. It’s a journey, this understanding of ourselves and how and why we interact within our environment; therefore I approach therapy from an empathetic and trauma-sensitive perspective that is also down-to-earth.
Jacky’s previous role was supervisor for Healthy Families Fairfax, a home visiting program that works with mothers on strengthening their bond with and increasing empathy for their infants through developmental education, activities, and self-reflection. Jacky’s experience in this position expanded her understanding of the critical role that secure attachment in early caregiving plays on a person’s lifelong emotional development.
Jacky appreciates the complex consequences that arise when clients feel insecure in their relationships due to possible attachment wounds, abuse, and neglect, therefore she intentionally approaches sessions from a compassionate and strengths-based perspective.
Master of Social Work in 2017 at The Catholic University of America’s School of Social Service. Her undergraduate degree is in Art History.
