If you have been looking for a sign to begin your journey with therapy, or want to know more about grief and mental health then this is it- you’ve come to the right place!
I find joy in shifting the paradigm of normalizing grief in ALL spaces. It is my belief that it doesn’t matter what anyone's societal status or background is; everyone is susceptible to loss and challenges with mental health, which is really one more thing that makes us more alike than different. Grief awareness is essential to moving beyond survival. There is freedom in thriving!
VHTS clients’ experiences are enhanced because Jasmine is a specialist rather than a generalist when it comes to grief, loss, and bereavement; this is her area of expertise.
Jasmine is a licensed clinical social worker and certified grief counselor. She also utilizes Prolonged Grief Disorder Therapy (for appropriate clients) to aide in their support.
Jasmine specializes in serving marginalized populations as well as individuals who have experienced various dimensions of loss such as:
primary loss- physical connection to deceased
secondary loss- loss of self, loss of self- confidence
non-death loss- example, caregiver caring for ill, loss of independence, divorce, friendship
ambiguous loss- loss without closure
disenfranchised losses- loss experiences that are not as obvious or do not involve death.
Applying a person-centered approach with her clients Jasmine is supportive, non-judgmental, and empathetic.
“I take a collaborative approach that is tailored to each individual’s unique experience with grief and loss in order to transform their painful experience into a new dimension of hope.”
- Jasmine Cobb, LCSW, CGCS
She uses an eclectic approach that is comprised of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Trauma- informed care, Empowerment theory, Social Learning theory, and Person in Environment.
Jasmine also offers specialized techniques such as Prolonged Grief Disorder Therapy as well as Brainspotting .

Next Level Grief and Mental Health Care Transformation
We work to end the culture of silence around grief
1. Have you experienced a recent or past death- loss that you still can't seem to emotionally find peace with.
(Your brain gets it, but emotionally it doesn't sit well with you or it doesn't makes sense in your mind either, it's hard to believe it's true)
You feel as though a part of you died
Have difficulty concentrating
You try to avoid reminders the person has died
Feel life is meaningless since the death
Feel lonely and also have a tendency to isolate
Find it difficult to do things you used to enjoy
Feel angry/ Angry at God
Difficulty sleeping or resting
Difficulty slowing down or being still
Anxiety/ Worry/ Confusion/ Fear
Depression/ Sadness/ Emptiness
2. Regardless of time and whether or not the loss was/is expected grievers tend to want to share their experience in a space where they can find clarity on their journey, feel accepted not judged, feel seen and heard.
At Visual Healing Therapeutic Services, PLLC we provide that space.
