Jacqueline (JJ) is a dedicated pre-licensure Marriage & Family Therapist (MFT) specializing in couples and family therapy, trauma, and adolescent mental health. With a Master of Arts degree from Adler Graduate School, she integrates Adlerian principles into her therapeutic work, empowering clients to create meaningful change through social connectedness.
JJ has a particular passion for working with couples and families, recognizing the unique dynamics and challenges that arise within intimate partnerships and families. In the White Bear Lake clinic, she provides a supportive and nonjudgmental space for partners and families to explore issues, improve communication, and strengthen their connection. Working part time in White Bear Lake high school, JJ creates a safe and validating environment for young individuals to explore their identities and navigate the complexities of adolescence while offering support to parents and coordination of care with school staff.
JJ’s therapeutic approach focuses on self-awareness and understanding how thought patterns influence behaviors. She tailors her approach using evidence-based techniques such as Attachment Theory, Narrative Exposure Therapy, Trauma informed care, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy to meet each client’s unique needs.
