Dr. Jackson works collaboratively with clients to develop effective ways of thinking, feeling, and, importantly, engaging in meaningful lives using their individual values. He is a generalist whose practice is comprised of clients who have wide-ranging concerns and backgrounds. Treatment is provided in an open and respectful environment to adults of all ages as well as older adolescents. Dr. Jackson provides treatment that is tailored to his client's presenting problems; in doing so, he emphasizes the use of methods that are supported by research and fosters open discussions with clients about the therapy process. As such, Dr. Jackson practices an integrative psychotherapy that incorporates a variety of approaches, including behavioral, cognitive, emotion-focused, and interpersonal methods. During early sessions, he works with clients to develop a clearer picture of their concerns and may include the use of brief tests or questionnaires, when appropriate. Over the course of therapy, Dr. Jackson often works with clients on responding differently to their distress and developing a greater sense of their own values, with the aim of creating a more fulfilling life.

Dr. Jackson earned his doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology from Saint Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri and completed his internship at the Seattle Veteran's Administration Medical Center in 2005. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Washington Medical Center in 2006. Dr. Jackson has been employed by and received training in inpatient medical settings across his graduate and postgraduate years, as well as outpatient psychotherapy with individuals, couples, and groups. He has additionally developed a specialization in providing psychological support to clients and families adjusting to changes in physical and cognitive functioning, chronic conditions, trauma, and life transitions. His practice primarily consists of individual psychotherapy with adults and older adolescents. Dr. Jackson has also been active with the Washington State Psychological Association (WSPA) where he held leadership positions chairing the Early Career Psychologist, LGBT, and Membership Committees. He is a licensed psychologist in Washington state (PY00003514).
