Hello, I am Daphne Jakstis. I have been a licensed therapist for over 20 years. I keep up to date with the latest advances in evidence-based therapy practices and incorporate them into my work with clients. Evidence-based practices are skills and techniques that have been proven to be effective. I also believe that healing is a holistic approach so I combine evidence-based practices with complementary approaches to promote overall healing and wellness. I realize that no two people are the same, so I tailor my approaches to best fit the specific needs of my clients. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, or any other issue, I will help you fully realize your strengths and provide you with skills to help you manage challenges in healthier ways.

Hello! Thank you for beginning this journey. If this is your first time in therapy, welcome. Getting started can be tough, especially talking to someone you don't know about things that make you uncomfortable, sad, angry, or embarrassed. Therapy is difficult sometimes and at other times it can be an enjoyable part of your week. I encourage you to express your thoughts freely and without apology. Whether you had not-so-great counseling experiences in the past, or you’re returning because prior experiences helped you trust therapy and its benefits, you are welcome here. I look forward to working together. Jennifer
