Jacqueline Nelson

Jacqueline received an Associate of Science Degree in Social Science from San Jacinto College; a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from University of Houston; and a Master of Arts Degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University, Lynchburg, Virginia.  Jacqueline is presently working on her Ph.D. in Professional Counseling, Education, and Supervision (online) at the Walden University, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Jacqueline has worked previously at Family Time Crisis and Counseling Center where she was effective in helping couples, families, adolescents, children, and adults reach their highest potential and resolve their personal mental conflicts.

Jacqueline utilizes an eclectic style of therapy where the treatment is tailored specifically to the client.  Her counseling approach is based on a combination of Gestalt, Existentialism, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Reality/Choice Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Jacqueline’s philosophy about therapy is a collaborative one where counselor and client work together to reach the desired goal.  Jacqueline’s ultimate goal is the help her clients change themselves, and at the same time, to learn to accept and value themselves. She further strives to bring her clients to a place of independent acting and responsible conscious being.  Jacqueline works with her clients to achieve competence and the ability to construct solutions that can enhance their lives.  Jacqueline utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques to help clients acquire and practice new skills; learn new ways of thinking; and, more effective ways of coping with problems.  Ultimately, when a person changes the way he or she thinks — they begin to change their world.  Jacqueline is a trained Christian Counselor, if the client wishes to explore spiritual issues.
