Jaclyn is passionate about continued learning and relies on evidence based approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Somatic Psychotherapy. She has pursued specialized training in the use of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a modality often utilized to overcome trauma, phobias, and addictions. EMDR is a well-researched and highly developed way to work with those who have experienced disturbing events in their lives and for whom the bad feelings, images and memories just don’t go away.
Jaclyn has also pursued training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). As a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which teaches increased awareness of thoughts/feelings, as well as improved methods of coping with discomfort, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a tool set which enacts lasting change in both thoughts and behaviors. Incorporating DBT techniques in one’s life often translates into increased self-concept, improved communication skills, healthier relationships, and a more meaningful existence.
