Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Christy Jacob "I believe counseling is a collaborative effort between myself & my clients. I encourage a culture of honest feedback; therefore, at any point if you feel you are not receiving the care you need, we address it & adjust as necessary.

It is my goal to provide top-quality counseling services. Everyone faces life struggles & it is my desire to meet people & organizations at their point of need so that I can earn the right to inspire & empower them to overcome life's challenges, reach their full potential & goals, & strengthen connections so that they can have healthy & fulfilling relationships at home, work & in the community.

I believe the quality of our relationships has a direct correlation to our satisfaction & happiness in life. Therefore, relationships are at the heart of everything I do & it is my passion to help you develop healthy, happy, fulfilling relationships with those you live with & work with. I realize that your relationship with your counselor is paramount to the success of your counseling, therefore, I go to great lengths to make sure we are the right match to meet your goals.

At Covenant, it is our belief that everyone deserves to be treated with respect & to receive treatment that is individualized to your goals & needs. Therefore, unlike traditional analytical approaches, I customize my approach to meet your needs & to equip you with the tools & skills you need to overcome any situation. My approach is prescriptive, meaning it is customized for the individual utilizing primarily Cognitive Behavioral, Solution focused, & Impact therapy approaches."
