I specialize in supporting those experiencing addiction, anxiety, depression, complex trauma/PTSD and relationship difficulties.
Welcome! I approach therapy as a collaborative process aimed at developing insight, acceptance, and trust in the self. Making changes outside often requires us to first look inward to listen and understand; when you are able to make sense of your internal world, you are better equipped to build the life you want from a place of centered awareness. Through our work together, we create a compassionate space to examine relational patterns, process trauma, and ultimately make a new story for you centered in healing.

Greetings! I am Dr. Jacqueline L. Meyers, Founder & CEO of Healing Talk Therapy, LLC. Do you suffer with debilitating symptoms of anxiety or depression? Perhaps, unstable signs of trauma, grief, or substance use? And lastly, how about family/relationship/marital concerns that you just can’t seem to get a handle of? If you answered yes to any of these questions, envision waking up every morning feeling that you can conquer the day, equipped with versatile, necessary coping skills and then some! Now, hold that thought in for a minute and keep it until you foresee it as an accessible, lasting reality. How amazing does that feel?

I have extensive training and experience with individuals and couples struggling with substance and sex addiction, eating disorders, anxiety, trauma, and relationship issues.
Are you suffering or having a hard time coping? Do your feelings or behaviors feel out of control? Has your relationship lost that spark or is tension increasing? Often, our attempts to manage our stress and pain can end up creating more pain for us. In therapy, I will provide a space that is safe and free of judgment, so we can work together to explore the changes you envision for yourself and your relationships. Change can be scary but we will build off the strengths and resources you already have that make change feel possible.

We will work toward creating more accurate beliefs about yourself and healing the root traumas that are keeping you stuck- fostering a renewed and loving relationship with self and access to your sources of resilience.
I believe that our greatest struggles can prove to be our most important teachers, and invitations to connect to our higher selves. Changing our long standing patterns and holding space of our deepest pain can feel daunting and scary to confront on our own. Yet, with support and guidance, you will find change is possible, and there is hope.

Couples Counseling Therapists

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
