Dr. Jaclyn Polsky
Specializing in maternal mental health, which includes postpartum depression/anxiety, infertility, and loss
When Dr. Jaclyn was in high school, she enrolled in a Psychology course as an elective and she has been hooked ever since. From there, she knew she wanted to major in Psychology while in college and quickly realized that she wanted to go all the way and obtain her doctorate. She believes that it is one of the most interesting fields, with various topics always evolving. Once opening her own private practice, she fell in love with the ability to help others. Whether it be grieving the loss of a loved one, relationship difficulties, postpartum depression following the birth of a baby, or anxiety surrounding an upcoming situation, there is always a solution and a way to alleviate those not-so-pleasant feelings. Dr. Jaclyn strongly believes that therapy is a unique process for each person and she prides herself on utilizing an individualized approach in order to ensure that all individuals receive the appropriate support and guidance necessary to grow and change, and improve their overall quality of life.
How She Overcame Obstacles in Building Her Business To Help Women
Like any situation in life, Dr. Jaclyn was presented with obstacles along the way of reaching her ultimate career goal; however, she is a strong believer that overcoming these roadblocks only leads to more strength and confidence. Wanting to offer her patients only the best quality services, she would not settle for anything less; therefore, this road took slightly longer than expected to reach. Dr. Jaclyn says she would not change a thing about this journey.
How She Impacts Women’s Lives by Specializing in Motherhood
Being a Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Jaclyn has training in general areas of focus (i.e., depression, anxiety, grief, relationship difficulties, stress, anger management, parent training, etc.); however, her specialty is maternal mental health, which includes postpartum depression/anxiety, infertility, and loss.
The majority of Dr. Jaclyn’s work is with new and expecting moms, helping them to alleviate negative thoughts and emotions, as well as obtaining the confidence that we sometimes forget that we possess.

When opening her own practice, Dr. Jaclyn says she made a promise to herself to maintain an individualized approach for each of her patients. All of her patients have access to her direct e-mail and cell phone number, and she has received amazing feedback regarding the ability to reach her without going through an office manager, answering service, or numerous prompts over the phone. Dr. Jaclyn believes that the ease of these methods of contact is priceless.
