Hi, I'm Jackie Adams. I'm a Mental Health Professional in New Jersey.
I’m extremely passionate about helping individuals to become the best version of themselves. My counseling is based on understanding, compassion, trust, and respect.
I was born and raised in New Jersey and graduated from William Paterson University majoring in Elementary Education. I received my Master's Degree in Community Mental Health from the University of South Florida.
Individuals and Couples
I welcome individuals and couples into my practice desiring change in their life. I serve clients affected by a variety of issues, including substance abuse, relapse prevention, depression, anxiety, healing from infidelity, problems associated with divorce, life transitions and everyday concerns.
I strive to recognize the uniqueness of each person’s life situation and their goals for change. I believe my role as a counselor is to empower people to solve the problems that may be interfering with their everyday lives and instill the ability to make better choices. I work with clients to determine the best course of therapy based on their individual needs. I use many approaches including talk therapy, supportive therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance/commitment therapy, and solution-focused therapy. Mental Health Counseling encourages self-awareness, enhancing self-discovery to enable individuals to change and achieve his or her goals.
Counseling is conducted in a private, confidential, and safe environment and can be either short or long term as determined together with each client. My office hours are flexible as I try my best to meet each client’s individual need. I also provide phone and virtual counseling sessions.
