About Me

I am licensed in North Carolina with 5 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, family conflicts, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & depression. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.

What I enjoy most is taking the time to build a strong foundation of trust with my clients. I absolutely love what I do and view my job as a privilege.

I began my social work career thinking it would be a career in psychology. I started to explore other programs and found a love for social work after my first class at NCSU for undergrad. I decided to pursue direct practice after becoming a HRSA scholar during my masters program.

I graduated NCSU with a masters in Social Work and became licensed, after a long, tedious, yet rewarding 2 years of clinical hours and supervision. I don’t find anything more humbling than doing what I do as a therapist. One of my brilliant 16-year old-clients once told me 'God puts his strongest soldiers through the toughest battles!' I now use her as an example of success.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Joelle Jacobs. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.

Joelle is excellent. Due to Covid and other issues we have had to miss many appointments, so she has not gotten to know Ellie really well yet. However, she is getting there, and she is the first counselor we’ve ever had with whom my daughter feels totally comfortable. My daughter is always willing to go to sessions with no complaints and looks forward to seeing Joelle. I’m very thankful for her! She also communicates well and always answers my messages.
