Sandi Jackson, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

     I am a Colorado native who has just recently moved to Georgia to be closer to my children and grandchildren. My husband and I served in full-time ministry together for over 40 years. I returned to school in 2010, earning a Masters's degree in Clinical Counseling from Denver Seminary. After working for three years at a facility for at-risk youth, I counseled families and youth privately. God placed a calling on my life when I was a youth to help others, especially the vulnerable that may not be able to help themselves. My passion is working with children and adults who have been affected by trauma and abuse. I have a love for animals and frequently involve horses in my counseling. I am a certified Equine Gestalt Coach.
