Jackilyn Garces, MA

Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern

Hi! I’m Jackie, a Registered Mental Health Counseling Intern on a mission to help you rewire that anxious brain and beat burnout. Feeling like your emotions are taking the wheel? You’re not alone. I get that facing tough emotions can be like navigating a maze, so I’m here with empathy and curiosity to guide you. Together, we’ll carve out a safe, judgment-free space for you to build the skills to take control over your emotions. And when you hit your goals, we’re throwing a celebration!

I’ve worked with diverse folks, from survivors of sexual assault to first responders, teenagers, and single parents. Therapy isn’t one-size-fits-all, so I bring a toolkit with CBT, expressive arts therapy, mindfulness, and more. I’m in this field because I believe in the power of human connection and the resilience within each of us. It’s an honor to be part of your journey toward healing and growth. Remember, your mental health is like a garden—it needs care and attention all year long. Raised in Miami with Colombian roots, I’m all about creating an inclusive and welcoming space for everyone. Beyond therapy, I like to soak up sun at the beach, hang with my Goldendoodle, and try out new restaurants!
