Professional statement

Jenna Sackman is a holistic and integrative therapist who is passionate about working with individuals seeking positive change and compassionate support. She specializes in working with high functioning adolescents and adults, who are navigating through life transitions and experiencing anxiety/stress, relationship challenges, loss/grief, low self-esteem and depression.

Creative and nontraditional in her approach, Jenna aims to uniquely tailor therapy sessions to each client’s needs by utilizing a variety of techniques that expand insight and encourage emotional, behavioral and cognitive change. With extensive experience and training in psychotherapy, positive psychology, mindfulness, Buddhist psychology/philosophy, meditation and yoga, she often incorporates Western and Eastern healing modalities in order to connect mind, body and soul. Generally, Jenna works to help her clients broaden their awareness, challenge problematic and intrusive patterns and narratives, learn healthy coping skills, live mindfully and authentically and to seek their unique version of joy.

Jenna understands that therapy is a huge investment, and she, too, is fully invested and deeply committed to being an active participant in helping her clients to realize meaningful and observable change and growth. Therefore, she is focused on providing her clients with practical skills and tools to successfully and independently navigate through life’s challenges.

Above all, Jenna believes that the strongest therapeutic relationships are built on trust, respect, transparency, empathy and equality, and she always counsels from a nonjudgmental place of understanding and compassion. Her priority is to meet and honor every individual wherever they currently are on their journey and to walk alongside them as they forge their own unique path.

Currently, Jenna offers a free 15 minute consultation and remote therapy sessions and is excited to welcome new clients to her online practice!


Message to clients

Most people are drawn to working with me because they are looking for a more active, creative, supportive, collaborative and results-oriented approach to therapy that provides them with concrete tools and skills to apply to and improve their everyday lives. Therefore, I focus on supporting my clients in gaining the necessary insight, skills and practical tools to live their best, healthiest and most authentic life by actively engaging with them throughout the process.

Holistic, integrative and creative in my approach, I believe that there is no "one size fits all" in therapy. Therefore, I aim to truly get to know and understand my clients in meaningful ways in order to create uniquely tailored and nontraditional therapeutic spaces that expand awareness and encourage emotional, behavioral and cognitive change. From my own experiences in therapy, I truly understand how scary and vulnerable the therapeutic process can be and how important it is to find the right fit, which is why I'm happy to provide a free 15 minute phone consultation to learn more about one another and to discuss how I may best support you! I truly believe that with the right guidance and support, you can learn to free your mind, and, in doing so, free your life. I'm ready when you are...
