Kian has been a part of mine and my daughter's life since 2009. I enrolled my daughter in therapy for situations involving her birth father. My daughter responded well to Kian as did I. Recently we are in therapy again and we returned to Kian. My life has been Turned up side down by (I shal not say who because I won't be nice) Kian is helping my daughter cope with our current situation and she has been a good guidance for me as well. She is helpful and always calls to check on me in my current crisis, even at 11:00 pm. I am very grateful for Kian, She was put in my life for more reasons than one. I trust her.

Ms. Jacobs has been by counselors since 2009. She also worked with my 2 children who had given up on several counselors but would communicate with Ms. Jacobs. Ms. Jacobs really cares, and keeps the family involved in the process. Not just counseling the child and saying it's confidential which individual therapy is and my providers leave it at that. Ms. Jacobs employs family therapy along with individual keeping the parents from being excluded from the process if they want to be involved.

Beside traditional therapy she also employs art therapy, DBT and several other methods. To find the right fit for the client. Her office is a safe comfortable environment for both the parents and children. There is a sound machine so other patients waiting cannot hear the conversations in the office. HIPPA is fully complied with in this offfice. She is intelligent, kind and is continually furthering her education.

If you are looking for a therapist who won't give up on you, will fight for you, will research for additional services and resources if needed, and will give you an honest discussion instead of just telling you what you want to hear then Kian Jacobs is the person you want to see. A therapist who is totally invested in her patients. She will even follow up with you during the week if she feels there was something in the session that concerned her to make sure things are going ok. No she pulls no punches and tells it like it is. Some parents don't care for the truth.

As for the comment CAUTIONS FAMILIES You are absolutely right opening up the phone book and just picking a number is an irresponsible act. When it come to your children you should ask your doctor the first time for some referrals and then interview the therapists to see if they are a good fit for you or your child whoever the patient is. If you are looking for someone to just tell you what you want to hear then no Kian is not the place to go. Some people are looking for an instant fix for their children or themselves. In the mental health field there is no magic fix or pill. I hope she found her magic fix. the other things mentioned in her review sound like garbage spewed from someone who is grasping for straws to justify her anger over the DCF call. Even though she waited to right her review i still seems to detect some "Moodiness".

If this woman had done her research or asked she would have found out that Ms Jacobs moved her office to be in her own practice to get away from a DR. who uses unethticall practices, and prescribed mediations off label, gave inappropriate medication to children and was being investigated by the CT Dept Of Public Health, DEA and I am not sure who else.

I highly recommend Ms. Jacobs as a therapist for both children and adults.

We love coming to see Kian J. She has been honest and helpful and we have a healthier family with her understanding and care. I have never been to an office with lazy boy furniture, a white board for any one who wants to draw, a mexican coffee bar and hot chocolate, and an art/play room for the kids to occupy themselves while mom gets some one on one adult time. We have complete trust in having her as a family therapist.

Kian is a kind, caring compassionate clinician. Her sense of humor and ability to engage my young son was breathtakingly refreshing from other clinicians I interviewed. She makes it a point to communicate information to my husband and I and share the work that happens in session, while still maintaining it as a "safe" place for my son to feel is his own. I feel blessed to have found such a professional.

Would never file a dcf report, never, without cause. When bringing a child for counseling, prefer that parent remain engaged in the process and not drop child at office and exit. Glad you found your way.

Kian Jacobs failed to help my family. We had just moved into Ellington CT and I went to her with my daughter in a time of family crisis and she turned a very difficult situation into a worse one. I found her topics of conversations to be outrageous and unethical, such as "everyone at Smith is a Lesbian!", referring to the college she attended. Moreover, it made me very uncomfortable that she gossiped about the kids in town, had stereotypes for them, for example, Ellington High School Cheerleaders. She advised me to keep my girl away from Cheer leading there, because of the drinking, promiscuity, drug use and eating disorders (Please note: this was almost 2 years ago now, and I highly doubt she knew enough about this to label a whole team.).She told me which sports team's kids would be good for my daughter and all the ones I should keep her away from (quite a list!). This should have been a red flag alone. She also mentioned the area of Crystal Lake and the type of people who lived in the area. Low income, some renters, broken homes and problem children that became her clients as a result. She pointed out this was worse than the area I moved into, right next to the high school. After several visits of this and no progress, compounded with a very stressful situation at home, I let her know that we were finished with her, sighting that she was inappropriate, unhelpful and I referred to her as the "town crier". She called me at home to tell me she was afraid my daughter would run away. I told her it was not her problem anymore as she offered no solutions from the start.
I then contacted a new therapist in Manchester referred by my PCP, and had an appointment set up. Soon after that day, DCF dropped in on us. The charges Ms. Jacobs filed were that I (her mother) was "Moody" and complained about the waterfall in the waiting room. DCF worker was professional and explained to me that every call has to be investigated, no matter how trivial it may be. She was concerned about the waste of resources resulting from the claim. It is my belief it was in retaliation to my criticism of her methods.
I have noticed Kian Jacobs has moved to a more central location in town. This is alarming to me.
Lessons I learned: get a referral from your child's Doctor, and don't open the phone book blindly. Also, Perhaps a fancy sign and a few letters after ones name is not proof of ones professionalism or abilities.
I waited a long time to write a review, so our own difficulties have been overcome. High stress situation long resolved and high emotions have long faded away. I do feel this information is important to share. At the very most, she may read this, mend her ways, and concentrate on helping people in a positive manner, if possible. I am happy to report my daughter is a successful, kind, very happy young lady. We made it through, but finding the right provider is vital. Caution here.
