Hello, my name is Jacalyn Wetzel. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been in the mental health field since 2006.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in North Carolina
Pregnancy and birth are both important transitions in life. We often feel that no matter how many books we read, we are not prepared for the very real physical, hormonal and emotional changes that take place before and after giving birth. There are so many new experiences and challenges. I offer pre and postnatal counseling to help you navigate this new phase in your life. I also offer in home postpartum therapy for new parents located in Harrison and Jackson Counties in Mississippi.
Are you struggling with the demands that come with your parenting role, or maybe feeling a bit overwhelmed and touched out? I've been working with parents since 2006 and have a great joy for this population. I can help you understand and embrace this part of your life's journey while providing you with the skills you need to refill your cup.
CBT is a way to learn a new way of thinking, correcting thinking errors along the way. I've had several trainings in the technique and it can be very effective in treating certain issues like anxiety.
Mindfulness is a word you've probably heard several times over the years. Mindfulness based therapy assists you with being in tune with your body and your current state of being. We use mindfulness to move you to your goals.
Sometimes we don't need years of therapy. Sometimes we need help with working through a current issue that may be a sticking point. I have had training in Solution Focused Brief Therapy and it can be very effective for certain individuals.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, and worried that an anxiety attack may happen at any moment? I can help you learn several new techniques that will give you an immediate calming effect. Once we have established immediate solutions, we will work together to ensure you learn long term effective techniques and get to the root of your anxiety.
Co-parenting can be a tricky area to navigate. I help you learn coping skills to assist with the feelings of frustration that may arise as well as help you understand new communication strategies that may be helpful to your situation. We work together to build a plan that works best for you and your co-parenting situation.
As a former military spouse I have experienced my fair share of life transitions, which is what led me to enter the mental health field as I saw a need for more specialized care for this community. I have attended several trainings to better assist me with my understanding of treatment for this area. I always come from a strength based approach and will work closely with you to help you understand and navigate the transitions in your life that you may be struggling with.
