Jeffrey B. Jackson, PhD

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

I work with individuals, couples, families, and groups from all life stages and backgrounds on a wide range of areas.  I specialize in relational issues, including marital distress, marriage enrichment, marriage preparation, sexual dysfunction, parenting and parent-child relationships, abuse, reactive attachment, and ambiguous loss.  I also work with people struggling with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and disability.


I believe that people come to therapy to resolve something that is preventing them, or someone close to them, from more fully enjoying life.  I also believe that people who come to therapy are capable of change.   I see my work as a therapist to help clients overcome the issues that brought them to therapy and bring about the change(s) they desire.


I operate primarily from a systems perspective in which I view individuals, partners, and family members as being inherently interconnected.  Consequently, changes in one or more family members tend to affect other family members and family interactions.  As a result, I believe people are best understood through patterns of interaction within the context of relationships.


I try to meet clients’ needs by using the therapeutic approaches that seem best-tailored to the clients, the specific issues at hand, and the degree to which therapeutic approaches have been empirically-validated for the issues at hand.

Mallory M. Jackson, MS

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

I provide therapy for adult and adolescent women facing any of the following concerns - depression, anxiety, relationship distress, work stress, eating disorders, body image struggles, infertility, loss, and life transitions.   While reducing your painful symptoms is my first goal,  I will also work with you to help you 1) feel more confident about yourself 2) find more clarity regarding your circumstances 3) feel more empowered to make hard life decisions and direct the course of your life and 4) find more hope, peace, and presence in your life.  I am a relationship therapist and will utilize my relationship with you to identify patterns of thinking, feeling, behaving, and relating that contribute to your distress. I will teach you effective strategies that will nurture both yourself and your relationships. 


I have specialized training in the treatment of eating disorders and related self-harm behaviors. Eating disorders are complex and require the help of well-trained and experienced professionals. I received invaluable training while working with adolescent and adult women with eating disorders at a well-respected treatment center in the West for several years before moving to the DC area. I work with individuals, families, and couples feeling the effects associated with an eating disorder.  


If you are experiencing any of these concerns,  I am ready to help you and look forward to hearing from you.
