Jackie Finch, LCSW
Therapy can be intimidating, even anxiety-provoking. Whether this is your first time trying it or you have met with a therapist before, there are many questions that come up. What will the room be like? Will he or she be friendly? What will I have to talk about? With all of these unknowns it is easy for anxiety to build. My job is to alleviate that anxiety for you.
This is your time, money, and emotional investment. I respect this and will work within your comfort level to help support and guide you through this process. I believe that by working together we can set achievable goals, reduce your symptoms, and even have some fun in the process.
I graduated from Fordham University with my Master’s in Social Work. I have worked in home visiting programs supporting new moms adjusting to their new role. The majority of my career I spent in a hospital and outpatient setting working alongside families who received a difficult diagnosis, experienced a trauma, or loss of a loved one. I hold a Certificate in Trauma Response and Crisis Intervention through Rutgers University that I utilize to help others understand trauma and help guide individuals through their own experiences with trauma.
Within Hamilton Behavioral, I meet with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, difficult diagnoses, grief, life adjustments, effects of traumatic events, and various other areas of focus. I also am a strong supporter and ally of those who identify as being within the LGBTQ community.
Therapy can be one of the most important decisions in improving your quality of life. I hope to meet you soon!
