Jakota Herring's bio

This content was provided by Jakota Herring "Hello! We all want to just be happy. Unfortunately, happiness is not a constant that can be achieved. Anyone who tells you otherwise might as well also sell you a bottle of snake oil. Life if full of struggle and difficulties. That is the normal condition, despite what TV & the movies suggest. The trick is to really know and accept that fact and then move on to improving your ability to problem solve and weather life's storms. Luckily, we don't have to go it alone. 2 heads are better than one as they say. You maintain you vehicle don't you? Often times, therapy is a matter of going for a personal "tune-up." I can help you master disabling depression that has sapped your energy, motivation and joy in life. I can help you learn how to master anxiety that prevents you from doing those things that you want to be doing. I can help you overcome crippling fears. Together we can figure out what to do when despite parenting the best you can your child has become unmanageable. We will figure out what is maintaining his/her behavior problems and what will be necessary to change in order too turn them around. Don't be the Lone Ranger. As humans we are meant to connect and help each other. I can help you. (I can seek my own help elsewhere.) Jakota"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Jakota Herring "I believe that we operate as a team. I have no right to tell you how to live your life, or to judge you for it.  Regardless of any mistakes you may have made, I will respect you as a person and for having the courage to seek help. 

My job is to help you achieve your own goals towards feeling better and in more control of your own life.  I can offer suggestions, teach you new things, but ultimately you are the one who does the work.

I will want to know what you find helpful and unhelpful. If you feel unheard, please tell me if I haven't already asked you!"

Jakota is an amazing counselor. When I met her, I was experiencing severe PTSD symptoms due to a traumatic past. Whatever she did worked and I am now doing much better (i.e. less intrusive thoughts and emotional reactions to trauma). Of course, I still have my struggles but I've been able to put...more
