Hello there! My name is Maya Jackson and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I earned my
bachelor’s degree in Health Care Administration from CSU Long Beach. From there, I began
working in grants/program management in South Los Angeles where I met a colleague who
suggested I apply to the MSW program at University of Southern California (USC). I then
became a Trojan and went on to earn my master’s degree in Social Work. I’ve been fortunate to
have held various clinical positions from a clinical trainee at a residential substance use
program in Los Angeles, to a clinical and administrative trainee at Kaiser Permanente’s
psychiatric department in Anaheim, to providing therapy to young adult mothers in Echo Park.
Additionally, I was able to expand my level of expertise in providing crisis evaluations as an
Orange County Children’s CAT team member as well as have obtained clinical specialty via
providing therapy to individuals who struggle with addiction and other co-occurring disorders. I
find my clinical areas of expertise to align with clients who are seeking support with depression,
anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, addiction, relationship issues, and BIPOC/social justice issues.
My clinical approaches vary from strength-based intervention, solution-focused intervention,
CBT, and DBT. I am grateful for all my prior academic and employment chapters as they led me
to my current practice and I look forward to continuing to grow and evolve as a clinician and
servant of my community.
