About Jaclyn Lafer

I have a history in theatre, comedy and storytelling, all of which are profoundly valuable in the therapy room. I received my PhD in Clinical Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, and in working toward that degree have extensively researched children, childhood and curiosity. What I have learned is that all wisdom lies in the questions, and it is a profound experience to become comfortable in the space of what is not known.

My Areas of Focus:

  • Childhood
  • Pregnancy and Early Infancy
  • Family Dynamics
  • Relationships
  • Mindfulness
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • ADHD
  • Adolescence
  • Spiritual Conflict
