Hello, my name is Jacalyn Wetzel. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been in the mental health field since 2006.

CBT is a way to learn a new way of thinking, correcting thinking errors along the way. I've had several trainings in the technique and it can be very effective in treating certain issues like anxiety.
Mindfulness is a word you've probably heard several times over the years. Mindfulness based therapy assists you with being in tune with your body and your current state of being. We use mindfulness to move you to your goals.
Sometimes we don't need years of therapy. Sometimes we need help with working through a current issue that may be a sticking point. I have had training in Solution Focused Brief Therapy and it can be very effective for certain individuals.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, and worried that an anxiety attack may happen at any moment? I can help you learn several new techniques that will give you an immediate calming effect. Once we have established immediate solutions, we will work together to ensure you learn long term effective techniques and get to the root of your anxiety.
Co-parenting can be a tricky area to navigate. I help you learn coping skills to assist with the feelings of frustration that may arise as well as help you understand new communication strategies that may be helpful to your situation. We work together to build a plan that works best for you and your co-parenting situation.
As a former military spouse I have experienced my fair share of life transitions, which is what led me to enter the mental health field as I saw a need for more specialized care for this community. I have attended several trainings to better assist me with my understanding of treatment for this area. I always come from a strength based approach and will work closely with you to help you understand and navigate the transitions in your life that you may be struggling with.
