Rebecca Jackwicz, APN, PMHNP

Rebecca received her undergraduate Sociology degree at Hartwick College and her Bachelor of Science and Nursing degree at William Paterson University.  She earned her Master’s in Advanced Practice Nursing at Monmouth University and her Psychiatric Mental Health Certification at Northern Kentucky University.  

In her practice, Rebecca believes the most important aspect of care is compassion; she is an advocate for holistic health.  She evaluates and treats teens through seniors. Her focus is ruling out additional medical issues, providing brief therapy, and prescribing medication.  She is experienced in treating clients with a variety of mental health conditions, including depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, panic attacks, and sleep issues, as well as bipolar, mood swings, post traumatic stress, and psychotic disorders. Rebecca also provides life-changing psychiatric care to geriatric clients in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. 


Every client will be guided to develop their own customized plan of care in a nonjudgmental manner that helps them feel their best and optimizes their level of function.

"Working with Rebecca has been wonderful. I felt so comfortable opening up to her. She was very patient and kind. Her input I felt was very wise and I did appreciate how she had a very good way of making you see both sides of a situation. It felt like I was speaking to a family member. Almost like the older sister I've always wanted"

"I had the privilege of working with Rebecca Jackwicz over the past 5 months, and I cannot express enough gratitude for the positive impact she has had on my life. 

From the very first session, Rebecca's warm and compassionate demeanor created a safe space for me to open up and share my thoughts and feelings without judgment. One of Rebecca's greatest strengths is her ability to actively listen and truly understand the nuances of my experiences. She possesses an exceptional level of empathy, making me feel heard and validated. This, coupled with her extensive knowledge and expertise in psychiatry, allowed us to collaboratively navigate through the complexities of my mental health.

Overall, I can confidently say that Rebecca is not just a psychiatric nurse practitioner, but a compassionate ally in my mental health journey.

"I can’t say enough positive things about Rebecca, she’s truly in the right field. Some words to describe her are compassionate and authentic. She always talks about the “cake mix” and let me tell you, don’t get discouraged and trust her process! There were times I thought I would never feel better but  through trial and error, Rebecca has gotten me to a place I didn’t think was attainable. Rebecca doesn’t only prescribe medication as a means to solve problems, she also gives some holistic exercises to improve your mental health, which I personally love! She truly is a dedicated provider and makes you feel heard, is never judgmental, and is very open. The conversation is always organic which is not the experience I’ve had in the past. I’m so glad I found her!"
