Meet Joanna Jacobson
Everyone deserves to be heard. Everyone deserves to be validated. Everyone is equal. I really think that people can choose to be whoever they want to be. Sometimes they just need a little direction and space to figure out what that means to them.

I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and therapist in Miami, Florida. I have an at home office in Palmetto Bay that allows me to see clients safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. I also see clients via Telehealth, FaceTime, and Zoom. I’ve worked as social worker and supervisor at Jackson Crisis Center, the Miami VA, Mount Sinai, and Doctors Hospital.
I specialize in drug and alcohol addiction treatment, sex therapy, crisis intervention, PTSD, and a variety of mental health disorders. I’ve worked with all populations including children, seniors, families, LGBTQ+, and couples. I’m versed in CBT and have a wealth of knowledge in mental health diagnoses and medication therapy.
I’m currently expanding my practice by studying at the Modern Sex Therapy Institute to get my sex therapy accreditation from AASECT.
I received my Bachelors from Boston University in Communication and Public Relations with a Minor in Psychology. I previously worked in New York as a lifestyle, beauty, and fitness Public Relations Account Executive. I earned my Masters of Social Work from Florida Atlantic University. I’ve always known that I want to help people work on themselves.
I’m a recovered alcoholic of 11 years and recently a new mother. I have extensive experience in self-care, positive self-affirmations, meditation, and spirituality.
