Meet Rebecca Maxwell

Founder & LMFT

I am Rebecca Maxwell and I am the founder and owner of Jacksonville Counseling Services. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Florida. My husband of 22 years and I have lived in Jacksonville for the last 16 years, raising our two sons in this amazing, family-oriented city. I started Jacksonville Counseling Services in 2015 and we have grown to 5 therapists who are dedicated to the growth and change of our clients.  I hope this page helps you get to know us. 

Prior to my voyage into marriage and family therapy, I spent 15 years in church ministry with children, adolescents and their families. It is my love of all different types of families that led me to pursue counseling. I have a keen interest in the health of relationships,  and I utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), an attachment based model that focuses on the emotional bonds between people. While it is not the only model I use, it is the foundation of my relational work.  

I believe that we have been given a great potential for growth. We often need someone trained to walk alongside us around, over and through the roadblocks to change. There are several evidence-based approaches that I employ along with EFT that foster change, personal growth, and freedom 


for individuals, couples and families. We can discuss the approach that is right for you.

My faith has been a the source of direction and peace in my life. I believe that Jesus came to reconcile us to the Father, a task that we cannot do for ourselves. When welcomed by my clients, I love to share the Lord's Word for us and incorporate biblical principles into the therapy process. For many of my clients, faith provides great strength, direction and peace. However, it is certainly not required for receiving excellent care with me.

I welcome feedback and direction as we begin your journey. It is important to me that you find a good fit in therapy. And if I am not that correct fit, I am happy to help you connect to other excellent professionals in our community. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions that you may have regarding my services or the process of counseling in general. 

Hope to see you soon!
