Professional statement

Jennifer Jacobs is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Dallas, TX. Jennifer tends to work with clients who feel overwhelmed by the challenge of feeling “better.” They recognize that their stress levels, feelings of sadness, or lack of motivation hold them back from feeling present and engaged in their lives and relationships. They might suffer from anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief, or PTSD. Sometimes, their mental health declined because of a traumatic experience. Jennifer offers clients a space for healing, and works with individuals, couples, and families.



Jennifer’s style is laid-back and approachable. She enjoys bringing clients’ strengths to the forefront, affirming who they are and helping them understand the often difficult contexts around their decisions and past actions. Her goal is to give clients the skills they need to manage their emotions, which can then lead to a greater quality of life. Jennifer utilizes elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Clients practice coping skills that can help them when they begin to notice their mental health symptoms increasing. They also learn to identify and replace negative thought patterns that lead to low self-esteem, low self-worth, and relationship conflicts. Jennifer encourages self-discovery through gently asking questions about their past, their beliefs, their experiences, and what they want for themselves in the future.



Jennifer earned a Master’s degree in Counseling with a concentration in Mental health from the University of Phoenix. She has eight years of practice working with clients in various settings, including in a residential adolescent treatment program. She enjoys meeting new clients and hearing their stories, using her experience to help them move past their roadblocks to living with energy and comfort.
