"MAY YOUR HOPE BE FULL"™
My name is Tamara R. Jackson, I possess dual Master degrees from Princeton Theological Seminary (MDiv.) and Rutgers University School of Social Work (MSW).

Synopsis – After intervening in a domestic dispute involving his mother, 17-year-old Antoine finds himself caught up in all the trappings of a judicial system that refuses to see him for the boy he is and wills to catapult him into adulthood. What does proper response look like? Did he act out of anger or trauma?

Testimonial - Current Client
I am writing to thank you for being such an excellent therapist. My therapeutic sessions with you have been critical during this Covid-19 Pandemic. Therapy is a critical part of my self care and allows me to maintain my mental health. It has helped me to process my feelings and anxiety in an appropriate way. It also has allowed me to be emotionally available to support and help my family and others. I have been receiving services at Hopefull Therapy since January 2020. I have found Tamara Jackson to be a skilled professional who is able to use a variety of methods and strategies as needed. She listens attentively to everything you say and is able to reference points you have previously raised when appropriate. She is, respectful, empathic and, non-judgmental. She has been able to create a safe environment which has allowed me to safely work on very sensitive issues. As a result, I have recommended her to several people.
