Our mental health has a direct and huge impact on our behaviors and personalities. With the right help, children, teens, adults, and families can learn to live and thrive again.
My name is Julie Jakobi and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. My journey toward mental health counseling started after I adopted four children in 2002.
Today, I am an Adoption Specialist, certified by the Florida Department of Children and Families. I provide support to families and individuals dealing with Reactive Attachment Disorder, ADD/ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and a variety of misbehaviors.
In addition to my work with children, I also assist adults with daily life struggles related to Anger Management, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Major Recurring Depression, Anxiety, and Trauma. I have experience working with clients diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.
I utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy techniques, Solution-Focused Therapy, EMDR, and other evidence-based practices to achieve the best outcomes for my clients. I also offer Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to teach effective coping mechanisms.
I like to educate my clients about what is happening in their minds and body to improve symptom management and achieve relief. My therapeutic approach focuses on collaboration with clients to identify what works and what doesn’t in their lives.
Together, we develop personalized treatment plans and use effective, modern approaches to solve problems and alleviate symptoms.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and support you in your journey toward healing and growth.
