Hello, I am a clinical psychologist with more than 15 years of experience providing psychotherapy for children, adolescents and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, and interpersonal difficulties. I received my Masters in Education from Harvard University and my PhD in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University. I welcome clients from all backgrounds and ethnicities into my practice, and use an interpersonal and eclectic approach to facilitate an exploration of issues causing on-going worry and/or distress. I have a long history of helping to improve the lives of those who have worked with me.

More specifically, I use psychodynamic, attachment and cognitive-behavioral approaches to provide successful treatment. With children and adolescents I treat mood and anxiety related difficulties as well as provide parenting consultations. I also work with adults struggling with relationship/interpersonal problems, life transitions and/or couples' issues.

My primary goal is to help you address the challenges that are impeding growth and positive change. Together we work to evaluate your needs and develop a plan to move forward. Please feel free to contact me for an initial evaluation or visit my website at www.drjjackson.com.
