About Jacqueline Schatz
As a psychotherapist, dating and relationship expert, I have been successfully helping people for over 15 years. I work collaboratively and actively to develop individualized, unique strategies for each person with whom I work. I provide a safe and comfortable space in which you can say anything, even things you have never been able to talk about before.
My clients find me honest, direct, accessible, insightful and kind. I have worked with many people who, through our work together, have moved into the life, success and relationships they desire. I love my work: helping people achieve their goals.
People I work with do not have time to waste. I like to help my clients quickly gain the insight, tools and roadmap they need to solve their difficulties.
Like you, I have struggled and I have been single. I get it. It can feel so lonely and painful to be suffering with the things you do not have or the things that are going wrong in your life. Having losses that you cannot control or insecurities that are difficult to quell, can become huge obstacles to happiness and success.
Becoming a therapist was a natural path for me. I have been highly attuned to relationships since I was young, when I watched the demise of my parents' marriage. Their divorce shattered my world. I wanted to learn how to do things differently.
As a student of relationships, I eventually learned how to achieve my own happy relationship with the love of my life. As someone married with children, I know both the joys and challenges of being in a committed, long-term relationship and raising children together.
I use my personal and professional experiences, my super-power intuition, and of course my extensive education and training to help my clients find the happiness they seek and to achieve their most important goals. I want to help you move through your struggles to create the life, happiness and success you have always wanted.

I worked for many years at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in the NY Psychiatric Institute in the departments of Schizophrenia, Substance Abuse and Personality Studies.

In addition to independent practice, I have served as a Supervisor in the Family and Couples Treatment division of the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy in NYC, supervising and training other therapists.
As a therapist, my single clients benefit from my years of experience working successfully with couples.
Though, we have much in common, men and women often experience and approach their struggles in different ways. These differences can lead to conflict in relationships. Having worked extensively with both female and male clients, heterosexual and LGBTQ, I am able to help my clients create the successful relationship they desire.
