Isaac Jacobs (he/him) is trained as a Clinical Social Worker, 200 hr Yoga Instructor, and Master Level Reiki Practitioner.
Isaac has been working with individuals and families across the Rochester region since 2011. This work includes persons affected by mental health challenges (anxiety, depression, borderline personality), addicted family members, traumatic religious experiences, and other challenges and/or types of trauma.
Isaac approaches his work in a collaborative mindset; recognizing the importance of aligning with people to determine the best path through the challenges they face. He is an open-minded therapist, who seeks to understand others in order to provide support and guidance in the best way possible. Isaac enjoys working with transitional age youth, such as adolescents and young adults. There are many challenges that can occur during these phases in addition to the typical developmental changes and they can have an impact on getting through daily life successfully. This also includes parents who struggle with how to best support their kids through these challenging times in addition to juggling the rest of life. Isaac recognizes the reality of these challenges for all involved and how important it is to have a place where parents and kids can share what’s going on without fear of judgment and where an outside perspective can make a difference.
Isaac has also worked with many youth and adults who have been through traumatic experiences, particularly various types of abuse and other experiences which have the potential to negatively alter the course of one’s life. In particular, he has worked with adolescent and adult men who have been impacted by these experiences and are at risk of repeating these same patterns with those they care about most. Isaac offers a safe space where you can begin the recovery and healing process that will lead to lasting, positive change and realizing your full potential.
