Jaclyn Houston, LICSW
Over the past 12 years I have worked in schools and treatment centers with adolescents,adults, couples, families, and groups. Most recently I have been working with first responders and military personnel within all branches. I have learned so much from the people I have had the pleasure of helping throughout the years. I come from a place of non judgment, compassion and fortitude. The most rewarding part of my career is helping people gain stability in a stronger, more secure sense of self.
Life can bring on so many challenges. Often times we can feel so alone, lost, and confused. It can take a lot of courage to ask for help. I am here to help you reach your goals and to develop a stronger sense of control over your life. I will support you in problem solving, relationships, gaining insights, and with healing from past experiences. For those who love animals, I specialize in Animal-Assisted Therapy and am often accompanied by my canine companion.
