Welcome Mark Jacobs, AMFT
I help to find the courage to explore difficult and painful experiences in a safe and validating environment, and recognize readiness for growth and healing. I am here to support you. I use humor and communication skills to foster a connection with clients and families. My experience includes providing mental health support to diverse populations: children, teens, couples and families. I am very comfortable treating a variety of diagnoses and issues, including: anxiety, panic attacks, depression, crisis, addiction, trauma, dual diagnosis and relational problems. My experience also includes helping clients navigate through the process of grief and loss related to issues of death of loved ones, illness, divorce, and job loss.
I have 4 years of previous clinical experience in inpatient, partial hospitalization, and community settings. My approach to therapy includes, Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), Solution-focused therapy, mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Person Centered therapy. I utilize the connection that exists in the mind and body to promote grounding and self-regulation. Together, we will work to create a personalized plan to help you reach your goals and lead an authentic and more fulfilling life.I obtained my Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Argosy University in 2018. Prior to that I served 20+ years in the United States Navy and retired honorably. I joined the Grow Through Life Counseling Team in 2023. I am accepting new patients in Chula Vista in person care and in California via telehealth. Mark is supervised by Ian Saward, LMFT.
