Tasha has been practicing psychotherapy for over 18 years. With a diverse clientele that ranges from drag queens to CEOs—psychotherapist, family therapist, and relationships counselor Tasha Jackson MA has been widely published in magazines and academic journals. She gained national attention for being an early advocate for the LGBTQ community, and was one of the first US-based therapists to openly champion gay parenting.
Relentlessly curious about human behavior and driven to affect social change, Tasha is currently pursuing opportunities to host public forums as an interviewer to build greater understanding and compassion in the world. Her first TEDx talk “How Can We Not Let Breakups Break Us?” debuted online in fall 2020 and her book: Master Dater: The New Normal Dating Guide for Finding Love In the Digital Age, Plus 29 Hilarious and Humbling Anecdotes from a Therapist’s Dating Life is available on Amazon.
She has found that therapy succeeds primarily because of the quality of the relationships with her clients; trust is paramount. However, she integrates different techniques to meet her client’s individual needs; not try and fit a client into a theory. She has been trained under both traditional and more modern progressive theories and typically leans on the following:
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Structural Family Therapy
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
