Working with our therapist at Northampton Sex Therapy Associates was surprisingly playful and fun. She was extremely knowledgeable, insightful and sensitive and managed to work with us in a way that was totally non-threatening. A great listener, she was able to lead us out of, and away from, the realm of “sexual technique” and into the realm of deeper, more profound connection between us. Working with her felt like a safe environment in which to focus on our relationship and has put the juice back in our marriage. In therapy we learned amazingly simple, yet powerful, tools for handling conflict and the therapist took time to get to know us together and individually which allowed us to hit the road running. A long-term sticking point between us was that one of us wanted romance, and one of us wanted more sex – but actually it turned out that we both wanted the same thing – more intimacy – but were calling it different things. We highly recommend Northampton Sex Therapy Associates. Viva Libido! (L and R, Pittsfield, MA)
Just want to thank you so much for your support, encouragement, openmindedness, positivity and many other traits. It has been a wonderful growth process, and I couldn't have imagined a better form of therapy or therapist for that matter. I just want you to know how much we value and admire your abilities. You, and the sessions, have challenged us in ways we couldn't have imagined, and we are so much better for it. Thanks for exceeding expectations. No wonder you have the reputation you do.(P & N, Florence, MA)
Testimonial to Jassy Timberlake, therapist extraordinaire!
I have been a counselor myself, have seen a handful of therapists over the last twenty plus years for various issues and am a firm believer that there are times when an objective viewpoint is essential to one’s growth and well-being. Sharing deeply private and intimate experiences with another, however, can be unsettling and should be entrusted only to someone worthy. Jassy Timberlake merits that honor. It is rare…extremely rare…to come across a therapist as exceptional as she. Jassy is truly a gem.
With all my experience, both professionally and personally, I am struck by Jassy’s unique ability to balance challenge and support; to be fully present and compassionate while encouraging deep reflection and soul searching; to guide without directing. She very naturally creates an atmosphere of safety where even the most painful emotions or awkward issues can be touched, explored…perhaps just spoken for the first time. She has an uncanny ability to strip through distractions and diversions to elicit the essential truth.
With her by my side, I was able to walk through darknesses I couldn’t bear alone. Jassy stood by me and helped me feel, really feel, the pain and hurt of incest, emotional abuse, marital infidelity. I cried more than I ever had before and the catharsis was immense. Opening those flood gates allowed me to start healing on a level I’d never approached before. The progress I made in a few months with Jassy far surpassed any previous advances. I am grounded, strong, and firmly set on a path to health. The positive impact on all aspects of my life is immeasurable.
I highly recommend Jassy Timberlake without reservation. Her skills and talents are unparalleled. (R. P. Melrose, MA)
I want to thank you for all the support you have given me and to thank you for helping me to discover my independence, self-worth, confidence and ultimate happiness. I have realized what I really do want within myself and within everyone else in my life. I could not have come so far in my journey of self-discovery without you. Thank you so much. Your support means a great deal to me. (S.H. Boston, MA)
We saw Jassy before we were married and after, over the course of three years. She was great at helping us navigate really practical issues and we have a much stronger partnership as a result. She offered a great mix of "technical" learning of psychotherapy concepts and real world thoughts on how to handle a tough situation. She has been an invaluable resource to us. We managed through some very challenging circumstances with a lot of support and good counsel. We are really grateful. (J and T, Boston, MA)
