Meet Joanna Jacobson
Everyone deserves to be heard.
Everyone deserves to be validated.
I am here to facilitate your personal and relational growth towards (a) who you want to be, and (b) what it is that you cherish most in life.
I specialize in intimacy issues for both couples and individuals with over a decade of experience in treating trauma and addiction.
Because at its core addiction IS an intimacy disorder, I relish the opportunity to dig into which specific patterns, behaviors, and ideas, might be keeping you from achieving a greater union with both yourself and your partner.
Modalities and training that I actively use in working with clients.
- Acceptance and Commitment
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Marriage and Family Therapy
- Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
- Motivational Interviewing
- Person-Centered Therapy
- Psychological Testing and Evaluation
- Solution Focused Brief Therapy
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Strength-Based Therapy
- Therapeutic Intervention
I am pragmatic and practical, aiming to get you moving in the right direction in a very safe, therapeutic environment.
I have an at home office in Palmetto Bay that allows me to see clients safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
I also see clients via Telehealth, FaceTime, and Zoom.
I’ve worked as social worker and supervisor at Jackson Crisis Center, the Miami VA, Mount Sinai, and Doctors Hospital.
I received my Bachelors from Boston University in Communication and Public Relations with a Minor in Psychology.
I previously worked in New York as a lifestyle, beauty, and fitness Public Relations Account Executive.
I earned my Masters of Social Work from Florida Atlantic University.
I’ve always known that I want to help people work on themselves.
I’m a recovered alcoholic of 11 years and recently a new mother. I have extensive experience in self-care, positive self-affirmations, meditation, and spirituality.
It would be an honor and pleasure to work with you individually or as a couple.
