Are you tired of the old script running in your head that makes you feel helpless and disempowered? What if you can design your life so you won't have to keep playing it small? What if you could rewrite the story of the main character (you) to feel more confident and empowered? 

Hi, my name is Jacquelyn Rucker, and I am a marriage and family therapist intern. I am accepting teens, young adults and couples facing difficulties in their personal, familial, and romantic relationships to help them achieve optimal mental health. 

Individual Therapy

I use Narrative Therapy to help people feel more empowered and less victimized by their life or thinking. I can help you become the author instead of the bystander of your life. My goal is to help you overcome personal and relationship challenges, and improve your self-esteem and prioritize your self-care. 

Couples Therapy

I integrate Narrative Therapy and Solution-focused Therapy approaches when working with families and couples. In employing Narrative Therapy, I collaborate with clients to explore the stories they tell about their relationships and identities. By examining these narratives, we can identify patterns, challenge unhelpful beliefs, and co-author new, more empowering stories. Additionally, Solution-focused Therapy allows us to focus on solutions rather than dwelling excessively on problems. Together, we set clear, achievable goals and emphasize the strengths and resources within the family or couple. By highlighting successes and small changes, we cultivate hope and motivation for further progress. These combined approaches foster collaboration, resilience, and positive change within the familial and relational dynamics.

I have a Bachelor's in Psychology and am currently earning my master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University. 

Accepting New Clients

I accept Cigna Insurance. Since I am working toward licensure, my reduced rate is $30 per session and $45 for family and couples therapy. 

My services are supervised by Gena Golden, LCSW, clinical site supervisor.
