Jackie Gingerich, LPC
Therapist/Clinical Treatment Supervisor
Jackie Gingerich is Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). She is a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA). Her undergraduate degree in Psychology is from Washington State University and her Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling is from Walden University. Jackie has been with A to Z Counseling since 2007, working first as a Psychosocial Rehabilitation Counselor while continuing her education to become a licensed professional counselor. As a Therapist, Jackie works in an extremely relaxed, informal manner that is collaborative in nature. She likes to use humor regularly in therapy sessions and takes every possible measure to ensure that her office is a safe place for clients to freely laugh, cry, or express anger as they need. Jackie describes her philosophy as systematically pulling different counseling techniques from a wide range of theories, she tends to work most heavily from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) standpoints. Each of these types of therapies help people overcome irrational, dysfunctional, and unhealthy thought processes that tend to add to and prolong emotional strain, trauma, and tension from stressful life incidents.
