A Practical and transformative experience
in Therapy and Coaching
Hi, my name is Jacqueline Connors, and I’m a Clinical Therapist in Napa Valley who specializes in an effective and transformative approach to therapy and coaching. If you have done traditional talk therapy or basic life coaching before but find that you still are not where you want to be, or if you want to start therapy for the first time but uncertain of how effective it will be, this is for you!
Do you feel stuck in your head? Stuck in your life? Not sure about what decision to make?
i keep trying to feel better, to think better..but i keep falling back.
Hearing your story, I will tune into the things keeping you stuck and causing you struggles in your life. I will see and hear things that you you may not have noticed about yourself. You will then be able to uncover and rewire those beliefs that's bringing pain or causing stagnation and set-backs. I will show you how to override all of the old accumulated beliefs that no longer serve you in anyway.
Does life feel like a constant struggle?
Do you want to get control of self-criticizing thoughts?
Through our work in therapy and coaching, you will be able to overcome and eliminate issues like self-sabotage, procrastination, fear of judgement, imposter syndrome, money blocks, low self-worth, indecision or just constant worry so that you are able to feel good about yourself and to get what you want out of life.
What I do
As a Clinical Therapist and Coach, I help individuals from diverse backgrounds, professions and interests, get control and eliminate old thinking patterns and heavy conditioned emotions. This is critical! Most of my clients come to me after struggling repeatedly by trying to “fix” themselves on their own or have attended on-going talk therapy sessions with minimal results or had results that did not last.
How would you like to be relieved from issues and behavioral patterns developed from upbringing and life-long conditioning? To move away from emotional pain, self-doubt and internal suffering.
You’ll discover that emotional suffering is not a life-long sentence. In fact, you will discover, that life can be enjoyable....or enjoyed once again.
The work will finally change your life!
Why is my approach to therapy different
I developed Discovery 2.0 as a modern day approach to Therapy and Coaching in Napa Valley which is now provided on-line. I did so because traditional talk therapy often applies the “medical model”. This basically means a standardized approach to treat psychological issues. As an experienced Clinical Therapist, I am very adept in this application. Furthermore, I have trained and supervised counselors and therapists in the field of mental health and behavioral health using this model. However, a "one-size fits all approach" is rarely effective.
The medical model is an easy model for therapists to follow because standardized treatment plans have become the “cookie cutter of care.” The field is filled with this limiting approach and it is not enough for effective healing or sustained change.
WHY ISN'T THERAPY WORKING FOR ME?
The problem with therapy today
The problem is people are different. They have different histories, experiences, life styles, goals and interests. Each and every issue is not the same so treating it as such, prevents real healing and personal growth. It is not enough to pull a tool from the standardized box of treatment protocols just because it fits the medical model mold. The medical model works in the medical setting; but it is very limiting in the world of mental health and personal development.
I am a firm believer that for therapy to be effective, it MUST involve working with the subconscious mind. (Also known as the unconscious mind). Unfortunately, many therapists are not trained to work with the subconscious. This is truly a misfortune as the subconscious mind is exponentially more powerful than the conscious mind. And it is here where real change and healing will happen!
My work will help you identify and release painful, frustrating and self-criticizing thoughts. You will learn about the negative unconscious habits and self-talk that are literally running your life. The unconscious mind is the place where never-ending ruminating thoughts come from, the place where self-sabotaging behaviors are released, where low-self worth is hidden and feelings of not being good enough are kept.
The good news is that the subconscious CAN be re-programmed and it can be re-programmed to work FOR you. I will help you change your thinking and old belief patterns that cause a lot of the problems and issues. But take note, once you make this discovery, get ready for your world to change!
Imagine yourself being free from patterns of thoughts and feelings that have harmed your sense of self, your relationships, your career, your health..
I will teach you how to eliminate ingrained thinking and self-sabotaging behaviors that damage relationships, affect personal growth, limit potential and contribute to physical health issues. And you will do this quicker than standard on-going talk therapy. You will eliminate stress and negative thinking and then you will hard-wire new healthy, positive beliefs.
My skills and training in Neurolinguistics Programming (NLP), Brain Based Coaching, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Eye Movement Therapy and Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT), have helped many people make transformations at this deeper sub-conscious level because it is only at this level where you will get the most impactful and sustaining results for the change you have been looking for.
Whether you are searching for an anxiety therapist in Napa, or just needing coaching on improving your relationships, our work together will be personalized, customized for your specific needs and most importantly, it will be effective!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THERAPY LIKE?
Therapy is different for everyone. In general, it's an exploration of your personal history, your internal self-talk, patterns of behaviors and struggles with emotions, we'll look at progress or blockages from previous sessions and make new discoveries of yourself. Our sessions will be one-to-one and last 1 hour. Initially, it is common for sessions to be held once a week. Each session is conducted online using a HIPAA compliant portal or over the phone, depending on your preference. Currently, availability for face-to-face appointments are very limited. (Please inquire)
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO WORK WITH THE SUBCONSCIOUS?
The Subconscious is the place where all the information you gathered throughout your life is stored. It can remember extreme emotions and repeated actions and will store these memories into automatic programming that often stays out of your awareness. Working with the subconscious means identifying the root, reason and cause of the issue from the past and then reprogramming that belief to a more positive one that heals the symptoms. This can be done through techniques like Rapid Transformational Therapy, Neurolinguistics Programming, Hypnosis and Brain Based Coaching.

Good therapy can provide you with support, problem-solving skills, get you unstuck from old patterns of behavior, repetitive thinking and help improve professional and personal relationships.
