Jackie Greco, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, MA, LCMHC
Pronouns: She, her, hers.
Hi, there! I am a National Board-Certified Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the state of North Carolina. I received my Master of Arts in Counseling degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
My training and experience includes work with clinical, situational, and developmental concerns. I have over 7 years of professional experience working with individuals, couples, and families. My counseling style emphasizes an empowering and collaborative process that focuses on a client’s individual goals and values.
Making the jump into therapy isn’t always an easy one. If you decide now is the time, I would be honored to walk beside you in that journey to support you along the way!
Want to know more about the therapy part?
I approach my clinical practice from a Person-Centered lens that focuses on developing a positive, nonjudgmental, empathetic, and authentic therapeutic relationship with my clients.
I also use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (making conscious connections to behaviors, life patterns, and themes with the intent of being able to make healthy adjustments and changes with that awareness), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (focusing on possibilities, strengths, and solutions), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (using acceptance and mindfulness strategies to help clients commit to behavioral change and increase psychological flexibility), and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, an intervention used to work with trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, phobias, and any limiting/unhelpful thinking).
For work with couples, I have completed evidence-based trainings in both Gottman Level 1 and Prepare/Enrich Premarital Counseling and will integrate concepts from Emotionally Focused Therapy into assessments and interventions. I approach my work with families from Structural Therapy and Transgenerational Therapy modalities.
What do therapists do off the clock, anyway?
Outside of office time, I love to read, and I love being outside. In the past few years, I have rekindled a childhood love for hiking and camping by visiting national parks for vacation adventuring! I went to App State (#ItsGreatToBeAMountaineer) for undergrad and still try to catch ASU football games every fall. My dog, Moses Cone Greco, known by many as ‘King of the Good Boys’, is named after my favorite hiking spot on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
