Isaac Jacobs has been working with children and families across the Rochester region since 2011. His work has included individuals and families affected by mental health, addiction, developmental/intellectual challenges, divorce, trauma, poverty, and other challenges. He 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 tweens, 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. Of course, 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.
