Jacqueline Sim is a therapist specializing in individual, couples and family therapy, and maintains a private practice in Houston, Texas.
Her passion lies in helping those struggling with issues arising in different life stages, including pregnancy and postpartum depression and anxiety for both teens and adults. Jacqueline recognizes how factors, such as marital issues, parent/in-law issues, and expectations about being a mother can complicate the new parent experience. She provides clients a safe, non-judgmental space for them to talk openly about concerns.
Jacqueline's interest in helping women and their families with pregnancy and postpartum depression and anxiety issues grew from both her personal experiences and training. She understands the difficulties of adjusting to the new role of a mother, and how it can impact relationships, family dynamics, and self-image.
Jacqueline's therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. She integrates complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, she works with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
