Falling in love with watching soap operas on television as a child guided Jakita's natural role in helping peers sort out their relationship and dating challenges throughout the years. After a 3 year long-term, off and on relationship straight out of undergrad, Jakita met her life partner within months following her break-up, got engaged on her 1 year dating anniversary and happily said, "I do." three years later. Through her personal trial and error combined with specialized education in marriage & family therapy, Jakita has profound wisdom and a purposed desire to help men, women, and couples on their journeys to find the right person to spend their lives with.
