If you’ve made it this far, it means your daughter needs help. She wants to be seen, heard, and guided by someone who gets it. She has SUCH big feelings and she has to be taught how to process them… cue my entrance music. I am going to be that big sister of her dreams, someone whose advice she actually takes and doesn’t just roll her eyes at. (I know her, mom, trust me I know her.)
As a teacher and coach, I’ve been in the trenches with teens for the past 5 years. I bring wisdom from the teen perspective. With me, your daughter will learn new skills and exercises to process her emotions, deal with friends, reframe social media and body image insecurities, and go back to school with a tool belt full of supplies to get her through the tumultuous time that is *gasp* puberty.
Curious? Imagine showing up as the most magnetic, energized version of yourself in all situations. Imagine no longer having to jump between different diets, because you’ve made peace with your body. Imagine attracting anything and everyone you want into your life. Imagine being held in a 1:1 relationship with an EXPERT that’s custom made to your needs.
This will be unlike anything you’ve ever tried before. Will we talk a little? Sure, but not like therapy. This is somatics! What if your brain stopped trying to rule your body, and you let your body have a say for once? With me, you’ll learn how to drop into your body and tune into that de around your childhood wounding and limiting beliefs. We will figure out the patterns that are holding you back from living the life of your dreams.
I am a trauma-informed certified love and relationship coach who specializes in body image and confidence in teen girls and women. In addition to coaching, I am also a certified teacher in the state of Massachusetts and spent over 10 years performing comedy. Do I believe healing can be profound, deep, & hard but also FUN and *not cringe* Abso-freaking-lutely. And if I have to show you the one Wayfair commercial I was in to get you on board with that, then so be it. Twist my arm.
Through my 10 guided sessions with Jacki; I was able to zero in on my own desires/wants/needs, completely independent from any outside influence. Once those goals were established, we were able to deep dive into what it was -within me- that was holding me back from accomplishing what I so desired. The work we did was deep and vulnerable; full of emotional upheaval, but I never once felt unsafe or uncomfortable under Jacki's direction. Each week I was given tool after tool to physically rewire the connections in my brain and body; gently and gracefully releasing trauma, while showing all parts of myself forgiveness, love, and understanding.
Jacki is thoughtful, passionate, and an amazing listener. Jacki created a safe space for me to feel raw emotions and I was eager to meet her each week in order to tap into these feelings I wasn’t able to access before I started her program. I felt like her program was tailored for me specifically and she gave me constructive feedback and homework after each session that made me accountable for continuing the work on my own. Her program felt truly immersive and personal! If you’re like me and you’re ready to confront your negative narrative in order to love yourself more, you need to work with Jacki! She will guide you on a better path and help you realize you have the power within you to live a better life!
“When I first reached out to Jacki, she was truly my last hope for my daughter. Every therapist I got her, she hated and said she couldn’t relate. I loved Jacki’s energy and I thought my daughter would give her a chance because she’s so young and personable. My daughter is 14, a freshman in high school, and she hated her body, hated her friends, and hated school before this work. I’ve never seen Piper smile so much in my life. Her entire mood has shifted. She’s less quick with her dad and I. She ran for student government (never saw that happening) and has this entire new group of friends that she loves because working with Jacki gave her the confidence to believe in herself. My daughter is a completely different person after working with Jacki. Best money we ever spent!”
