She received a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from California State of San Bernardino. After completing her B.A., she attended California State University of Fullerton where she earned a Master's Degree in Social Work.

As a teen, she struggled adjusting to a new culture, language, friends, trends, you name it! However, these years made a huge impact in her life and led her to the path of becoming a therapist.

    She is the founder of Therapy Lux, a telehealth based private practice in CA, assisting individuals break intergenerational cycles and heal within.

    In her work, she believes in creating a safe therapeutic space to facilitate insight and understanding while laying the groundwork for healing and growth. 

    Jackie loves to embark on new adventures and create magical experiences. She is very community driven and stands by her life motto “we can’t heal alone, we heal together.”

    In this episode, we touch on the topics of breaking cycles as a child of immigrants, guilt that can come with boundary setting, finding one's personal values as a people pleaser, and more.
