Tommie Jackson, MDiv, LPC

I am honored and hopeful that you have chosen my practice, however I believe there is no magic pill. I trust your ability to listen to your inner wisdom, understanding you own thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I will listen with great respect and guarantee you that I will hold your confidences as sacred. I might suggest homework and other techniques, which will help us discover ideas and strategies for changing what is not working in your life. Sometimes change will happen quickly, and other times more slowly. Sometimes the outcome will be positive, sometimes tedious and uncomfortable. Remember change does not guarantee an outcome.

I hold a Master’s of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, NC. As part of my M.Div. Education I was chosen to participate in a one year internship at Duke University Medical Center. (5/1983 – 5/1984). I have been practicing since 1984 as a Pastoral Psychotherapist. I received my certification as a Clinical Member with American Association of Pastoral Counselors in 1991 and was recertified as a Fellow AAPC in 1999. I received my license from NCBLPC (#925) in 1995.

My approach to counseling is an eclectic one. I draw from several different therapy bases like Developmental, Systems, Psychodynamic and Mindfulness Theories and tailor it according to your situation. I work a lot with medical issues utilizing mind/body/spirit. I am a person of faith, however, I promise to utilize your own beliefs in this healing process, if you should so choose. We will discuss treatment options and plans. You must bring the desire and the investment for change. Only you have the power to decide what is right for you. If we decide our therapeutic relationship is not helpful, I will help you find another therapist that may be a better fit.

I specialize in anxiety and depression management, obsessive features, and mood disorders, as well as trauma and sexual abuse. I enjoying working with children, adolescents and adult individuals. I also enjoy working with couples on relationship issues and marriage counseling using the Terrance Real’s Method, which focuses on building personal accountability, being non-critical and healing childhood wounds, which interfere with adult relationships.

I have a rather unique hobby — I enjoy painting dragonflies. You may not have ever seen one, but they are lovely. I also enjoy animals and gardening.
