If you are in need of quick relationship skills and tools training, or patient long term processing and restructuring, I will be there as a support, a guide, and a safe space. Research tells us that couples tend to wait an average of 6- 7 years after the onset of an issue prior to seeking help for it. Can you imagine going 6-7 years with a broken bone before going to the doctor? Therapy is a space where you can work towards creating your own version of your best life. I am Jacqueline Wielick and I am here to help you improve your relationship.
Together, we have the ability to create new ways of being in this world. I believe that our attachments and connections to others have a tremendously significant impact on our wellbeing and how we experience ourselves and our lives- and when you are in a crisis, you need practical help fast. I have a deep passion for all of life’s relationships, and you will see my passion come out in my work through my patience, strengths-based outlook, and understanding. I am passionate about research, science, and seeking new knowledge- continually bringing to you the cutting edge of what really works. I have my Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from San Diego State University, where I received a training that focused on research, multiculturalism, and hands on training. I am currently working as a Marriage and Family Therapy Intern (MFTI).
I have had the honor of working at The Gottman Institute in Couples Services for four years, where I received significant exposure, training, and understanding of Gottman Method Couples Therapy. At the Gottman Institute, I have completed Level 1 Gottman Training while currently completing Level 2 Gottman training. Additionally, I also received training in Couples in Addiction Recovery, a program designed to target the needs of couples where addiction has come into their life, and Art and Science of Love Program Educator training, aimed towards training professionals in hosting the world renowned Art and Science of Love Workshop.
Originally from Seattle, I received a double major in Psychology and Sociology from Western Washington University, giving me insight not only into ones intrapsychic nature, but also into the larger socio-cultural context they exist within. I have received specific training in Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services in Bellingham, WA., where I also volunteered as support at an in-patient rehabilitation facility for teenage girls.
Outside of therapy, my passions in life include food, coffee, and nurturing the relationships I am so thankful to have in my life.
