Kathy Jacobson is the best couples coach I have ever been to. My husband and I began seeing her when our marriage was in crisis… actually close to crumbling. In 6 weeks she helped us turn it around to a point we could really focus on the real issues. I honestly did not think it was possible to fix what was broken in our marriage but I was wrong.
In Kathy's capable hands she guided our marriage to a place of health and vitality. It was excruciating at times but Kathy hung in there with us and helped us see the problems and show us how to fix it.
The key to any good couples counseling is a great coach and willing partners. You both have to be willing to do the work and get through the tough and uncomfortable parts. Kathy never gave up on us even when I wanted to. She had a unique way of honoring each person in the room without playing favorites – a problem I had experienced with other counselors.
Kathy saw us both as individuals first and as a couple second. She showed us we had to be good with our own issues first before we could heal our marriage. I am so grateful she came into my life and 10 years later our marriage is stronger than ever thanks to the year we spent working with her.
If you are in need of help getting your marriage back on track or better yet going to the next level, Kathy can do that for you with love, honesty and compassion.

I went to Kathy Jacobson seeking advice on a career transition and overall life goals.
She helped me "bite-size" my goals so that they became more manageable. She taught me how to communicate effectively and be more assertive in situations in which I had difficulty expressing myself.
Kathy is incredibly intuitive, intelligent, helpful, open, and centered. She has a great sense of humor. You can throw any situation at her and she will help you craft a better, more positive understanding of how to deal with it.
I give Kathy Jacobson my highest recommendation for career and life coaching. She is a phenomenal person, and her coaching is the best investment you can make in yourself.

Kathy Jacobson is the best life coach, therapist, counselor, listener that I have ever used... hands down. She is amazingly insightful and non-judgmental which leads to creative breakthroughs and new self awareness.
I continue to see Kathy for help with relationships and big life decisions. My son also saw Kathy during his teenage years for help with social and personal issues. When a coach can inspire even a teenage boy, that’s the highest recommendation!

Kathy Jacobson rocks my world. I started seeing Kathy following a 6-week hospital stay for a ruptured cerebral aneurysm that had left me feeling completely traumatized, raw, vulnerable, and lost. I had had physical, occupational, and speech therapies, and had even seen a psychiatrist, but none of those brought me back to myself the way Kathy did.
Kathy opened me up and allowed me to explore my feelings with a sense of safety and curiosity. She listened in a way no one else would – she was open and non-judgmental. I left her office feeling calmer, more relaxed, and more present.
The amazing and unique thing about working with Kathy was that she worked with me on both an emotional and a physical level. It is some of the deepest work I've done in my life and has awakened me not only to myself, but to a new way of living.
When people ask me now how I'm doing a year after my surgery, I tell them that I am better than ever, and that's because of Kathy Jacobson.
