Licensed Professional Counselor
Jacqueline is an active member of the Washington County Association for Mental Health. She is married to a Bartlesville Police Department officer. Jacqueline can be found crafting, camping, kayaking, and doing ride-alongs on the weekends and holidays.
Jacqueline strives to conduct therapy sessions in a positive safe environment. Once treatment goals are reached collaboratively and in place, Jacqueline utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to change and/or replace irrational or unhealthy thoughts, feelings and behaviors. This is done by providing psycho-education and reinforcing positive thinking that will lead to fundamental changes in the way the client thinks, feels, behaves and copes.
Jacqueline’s sessions are trauma informed and her theoretical approach (how she conceptualizes problems and works to solve them) include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Social Learning Theory.
Clients can expect to collaboratively identify treatment goals, develop strategies, and ultimately implement plans made in session. Jacqueline will continue to monitor client’s progress in each therapy session. In doing so, she will evaluate the success of the treatment plans, encourage success, promote empowerment, and work towards a therapeutic relationship built on independent self-maintenance. Jacqueline’s creativity provides an engaging and educational experience for the children and adolescence she sees in the therapeutic process. Sessions are scheduled based on the treatment plan developed and can be weekly, bi-weekly or monthly depending on individual client needs. The length of therapy is determined by the goals the client has set and the rate of progress gained.
Jacqueline’s primary personal charge is for clients and families to feel assured they can be genuine and vulnerable within the counseling process. It’s critical to Jacqueline to treat each individual with the utmost dignity and respect that is required of all human beings.
