In our opinion Dr. Jacobs is AAA rated. We have been struggling with communication and emotional issues for years. We both had been trying to tell each other what things we are doing that hurt or offend each other with NO avail. But when you have to say these things in front of a third party it makes you become more accountable. Dr. Jacobs gave us helpful tools to relate to each other in a more positive way. By getting counseling we both learned so much about each other and it made us aware of how hurtful we were being towards one another. Dr. Jacobs has a special way of making us both feel right and justified with our thoughts. We are the HAPPIEST we have ever been and we have learned to not say things that can hurt and have become more respectful of each other. We now look at each other as a partner and best friend. We never thought we could be this HAPPY and we owe it all to Dr. Jacobs!! Thank YOU Dr. Jacobs :)
Dr.Jacobs helped me get through a very difficult time in my life! After the loss of both of my parents I became very withdrawn and depressed, which was not like me. I had been to several other therapist and never felt fulfilled. Dr Jacobs was the only therapist that I felt was truly genuine and professional! She is a very kind person and really cares about her patients. I highly recommend Dr. Jacobs!
Dr. Jacobs is an excellent psychologist. She is supportive and honest. Her direct approach facilitated my resolution of many aspects in my life. The growth I have experience through our sessions has truly changed my life. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Dr. Jacobs for being the special person who are and blessing so many individuals with your talent and the gift of healing.
I have been seeing Dr. Jacobs for several months, as I deal with a major change in my life. I had tried two other therapists, but they didn't "get it". Dr. Jacobs has been open minded about this sensitive issue. This has been a stressful time and Dr. Jacobs has continuously had positive, encouraging view points and practical advice on how to heal, assess next steps and proactively move forward. My sadness and anxiety have lessened and my outlook has definitely improved.
Dr. Jacobs is quickly helping me deal with personal and professional challenges I've been trying to overcome. She's a great listener and always offers meaningful guidance. I look forward to my appointments with her each week and always leave her office feeling hopeful. I would recommend Dr. Jacobs to anyone who is seeking help. It's been a Great Experience for me!
Since last spring my daughter has been meeting with Ms. Jacobs every week. I can see a difference in attitude and mood every single week after I pick her up from the session. Ms. Jacobs has a way of connecting with my daughter, and I venture to say I would think teenagers in general.
We feel very lucky to have found Dr. Jacobs for our teenager. Dr. Jacobs has a calming presence and listens attentively, both to what is said and unsaid. She provides good, concrete options for our teenager to consider. Our teenager feels that Dr. Jacobs listens to her and provides her with good coping options. We have been both surprised and pleased that Dr. Jacobs allows us to call outside of our regularly scheduled appointments, and she even provided a session over the phone during a time of crisis. We would highly recommend Dr. Jacobs.
She is great! My first day I entered her office I was a wreck. I though to myself there's no way she will be able to help me. I was wrong! She was great all the way. She is very understanding and she is willing to work around your busy schedule. I was always looking forward to our next sessions because of how excited I was to see her. All I have to say is that she is great ! I am very happy in my life right now because she helped achieve that. Thank you!
Dr. Jacobs is a fantastic therpist. I walked into my first session with a real belief that I was damaged, and was facing the possibility I would need medication and a lot of work to get back on track. After only a few sessions I was feeling lighter, more clear headed, and after our a few months, all my depression symptoms were gone. I honestly never expected talking to somone could work so well. Not only do her methods work, I feel I have a tool set to keep me on track. I have a new appreciation for therapy, and her skills esspecially. She's very easy to talk to, and very kind and underdtanding. I would highly recommend her.
I have been seeing Dr. Jacobs for several months now, dealing with issues that precipitated addiction to alcohol that included grief, medical, relationship and stressful life circumstances. She has taught me constructive ways to cope with these issues, as well as helped me to better my self esteem and to truly start enjoying life again. She has a kind and caring way about her, as well as being professional, nonjudgmental, and able to get me back on track in our sessions. The deep depression that I was in was something I could not get out of myself and I am truly grateful that I choose Dr. Jacobs based on the reviews I read about her. I highly recommend her.
Dr Jacobs has been very supportive and helpful while our child went through a variety of issues. She is professional, courteous and eager to learn as much as she can about anything she isn't already an expert in. We are glad we started seeing her!
Thank you Dr. Naomi Jacobs! My life has changed with your guidance and positive intervention. I've had a difficult challenge in my life when I experienced verbal and mental abuse from others. The abuse became so habitual to the point that it became normality for me. Dr. Naomi Jacobs helped me open my eyes and realized this is not normal and led me to positive solutions. I am no longer in these situations. However, if they arise I am well prepared!! Thank you Dr. Jacobs!!!
I was going through a bad break up and she helped me not only get through the tough times, but she made me realize how strong and independent of a woman I really am! She has given me courage, strength, and filled my life with positivity!
Since I heard Dr. Jacobs voice on the phone when I called to schedule my initial appointment I felt relaxed and calm. I have never been to therapy before and I suffer from Anxiety and mild OCD. I love going to see Dr. Jacobs because she lets me "empty all of my files". I get to purge all of my crazy thoughts and she organizes them into a tiny package that makes sense and when I leave there I feel like I can breath better and that I'm not carrying around a heavy weight on my shoulders. She has taught me how to deal with irritating anxiety symptoms and how to get inside of my head and calm myself down. I recommend her to everyone I know and I'm very thankful that our paths have crossed. I will be a patient with Dr. Jacobs indefinitely.
Dr. Jacobs is an outstanding professional! Following psychiatric recommendation, a friend kindly referred me to her. My issues were not unique...empty nesting homemaker struggling with the next phase in life. Depression, anxiety, loss of purpose, lack of confidence all made me feel worthless in an otherwise idyllic life. Her kind and attentive manner of listening, and her sensitive and compassionate counsel over time have brought me to a good place of inner peace. Sometimes personal understanding and gentle motivation is what is needed to face difficult times. Thank you Dr. Jacobs!
I have been seeing/working with Naomi since January 2012. I came to Naomi to help me deal with a heartbreaking/devastating divorce after 36 yrs. of marriage. The counseling time has been invaluable to me in my recovery and learning new things about myself and my own decisions, choices. Naomi has always been extremely understanding, a good listener, kind and yet inquisitive to get me to probe deeper into my thoughts and feelings. I very much appreciate her honesty and objective perspective. She offers me a new way to think about things troubling me. Although I have come a long way and healed significantly, I feel I still need this support and time to share thoughts, feelings that I can't share with others (they are tired of hearing about it!).
I have been suffering from escalating chronic pain since 1985. I had the great fortune to find Dr. Jacobs in 2010. She has provided me with tools and guidance that help me cope with my severe pain. I would definitely recommend Dr. Jacobs' services to anyone, but especially to those suffering with severe chronic pain and/or PTSD.
Over the last several years I have had many health problems, not to mention family difficulty. With Naomi's help she has change the way I do and think about life. I was a A personally and when you are handicap that doesn't work, Naomi helped me take life slower and easier. I truly do believe without her guidance I would be in, pardon the expression, the loony-bin. I plan to continue to see Naomi as long as she can put up with me.
Last year, after realizing that I was repeating some life patterns that I'd rather not continue, I decided it was time to go back to therapy after a hiatus of over a decade. I was frankly dreading the experience, given that hashing over your old business with a therapist can feel a bit like a vivisection, but Dr. Jacobs provided a welcoming, friendly atmosphere in which to do constructive work. She's supportive and nonjudgmental, and asks questions that guide you to your own conclusions. I'm not sure that anyone ever looks forward to their therapy sessions, or that good therapy can ever be entirely painless, but she makes the process as comfortable as possible given the work that needs to be done, and I'm happy to report that my dread was entirely unwarranted. Calling Dr. Jacobs' office was easily the best decision for my mental health I could have made last year. If you're having problems, it might be your best decision as well.
I have been a patient of Dr. Jacobs for over two years. My sessions are weekly. When I began my therapy I had just divorced my husband of nearly forty years during which I had been subjected to both emotional and physical abuse. The result of the therapy has been better insight, greater understanding of why I made the bad choices in my life and a far greater understanding of how to improve my relationships with my family. Overall I am very appreciative of the time and ability of Dr. Jacobs in helping me develop a more meaningful life. She in an excellent listener and a very compassionate therapist.
Dr Jacobs is a wonderful and caring therapist. Working together we have resolved many issues that were affecting all aspects of my life. Dr. Jacobs will help you find a better way of coping and will help you explore the possibilities that will make your life better.
Meeting with Dr. Jacobs is a validating experience. She listens well, and I always walk away with a golden nugget to hang onto. She is calm and realistic. She gives insight into circumstances I have had trouble seeing clearly. She always helps me! She has an incredible memory. I realize she documents her notes after I leave, but she remembers things I don't remember saying. She has a knack for putting the puzzle pieces together for me. I have to say this relationship didn't happen immediately but has built over the past 6 months. She has truly helped me and I value her!
