Professional statement

Jackson Melnick is a is Licensed Clinical Social Worker. His psychotherapy practice focuses on the needs of men in their twenties and thirties, with an emphasis on college aged men. Some of his clients are experiencing interpersonal crises, or require talk therapy as part of psychiatric care, but many of them simply find it beneficial to meet once a week and discuss what is going on in their lives.

Drawing from an evidence-based approach to mental health care, Jackson uses analytic reflection to help uncover what is true and what is false in your life, help you to realign with the truth, and ultimately live out your values in the world with more confidence, grace and enthusiasm.

Jackson attended Brown University (BA) and the University of Chicago (MA) where he studied CBT, ACT and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. His practice is grounded in a worldview that there is always more human potential.
