Inside Out Psychology, Inc. aspires to educate, empower, and support mental health consumers, aspiring clinicians, and established providers. We envision a future where all people* can access high-quality, ethical, personalized psychological services, social-emotional wellness resources, and trustworthy psychological science information.

*regardless of socioeconomic class, age, race/ethnicity, ability, sex/gender identity, sexual orientation, identity affiliation, religious/spiritual affiliation, mental health diagnosis, treatment history, political affiliation, place of employment/job title

In 2024, Dr. Jeanne Jakob, a seasoned, board-certified psychologist with expert training in both research and practice, Dr. Jakob envisioned creating a company with high-quality consulting, education and wellness services to help consumers, providers, workplaces and organizations become healthier ecosystems. Inside Out Psychology is committed to improving/healing the mental healthcare system so that it can function more ethically, humanely, and effectively to benefit all members of society. Inside Out Psychology holds the belief (backed by research) that accessible, high-quality, multidisciplinary, personalized mental health and addiction services should be accessible to all.

A talented and interdisciplinary group of clinicians, educators, and researchers are within Dr. Jakob’s professional network. She intends to draw upon their collective wisdom to advance Inside Out Psychology’s mission.

Dr. Jeanne Jakob brings an impressive and wide-ranging collection of skills (clinical, writing, teaching, and research) to her work as a psychologist. Her experience working in various settings (research labs, hospitals, universities, VA hospitals, community mental health clinics, NIMH-funded psychotherapy studies, private practice) has provided her with a vast insider perspective on the pros/cons of different models/systems of mental healthcare. You can read more about her background and credentials here.

Inside Out Psychology’s website aims to be the premier independent internet resource for trustworthy and high-quality information related to psychology, psychological science, psychotherapy, and the mental healthcare system.  The Inside Out Psychology website is a resource for all.

The fields of psychology, psychotherapy, and mental healthcare have become less stigmatized and more mainstream in recent decades. This increased acceptance and visibility has resulted in the proliferation of psychotherapy interventions, behavioral/healthcare professional training programs, social media influencers, wellness services, and technology products available to consumers, workplaces, providers, and the public. Unfortunately, the quality and efficacy of this information is variable. Moreover, the amount of information can be overwhelming to the average mental health consumer. The Inside Out Psychology website strives to be a reputable “one-stop-shop” for mental health industry information.

WEBSITE VISITOR FEEDBACK AND COLLABORATION IS ENCOURAGED! The Inside Out Psychology website includes google forms embedded on pages to facilitate user feedback. Dr. Jakob and her vetted provider network will review all suggestions to ensure quality and and potential benefit to a diverse audience.

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.  ~ Aristotle

“Inside Out Psychology ” captures the lifelong opportunity we have to optimize the fit between our nature (“inside”) and our nurture (“outside”). Inside Out Psychology, Inc. supports the common thread across all psychotherapy traditions that promotes self-knowledge in the service of life-enriching behavior change. The more we can bring awareness, radical acceptance, and self-compassion to the aspects of our existence that are not within our immediate control, the more we can tune into our authentic selves and focus our energies on doing what matters most in any given moment.

Jeanne is among the most thoughtful therapists I’ve ever known. She is exceptionally well trained in evidence-based treatments and is gifted in her ability to tailor these treatments to her clients. What impresses me most about Jeanne is all of the work she puts in behind the scenes – coordinating with other providers, consulting with colleagues, reflecting on cases in the shower. It’s no wonder she’s one of the most sought after therapists in the Bay area.
