More about me

Licensing: LCMHC, LPC, LCAS
Years in Practice: 20

I am a licensed professional counselor with over 18 years of counseling experience primarily with children, adolescents and families. In addition to these populations, I will also work with women, teen mothers, military community and substance abusers. My services include but are not limited to assessments, crisis management, individual, family and group therapy.

I take a directive yet client-centered approach to people's problems and encourage you to learn more about my approach to therapy. My approach is not derived from any one particular school of thought but tends to borrow from all of them. However, I do employ techniques primarily from the behavioral, cognitive-behavioral and family systems prospective.

If we are to work together we will need to specify the goals, focus, risks and benefits of therapy, the approximate time commitment involved, costs and other aspects of your particular situation. I look forward to meeting and working with you and hopefully setting you on the path to your own personal journey!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

She is just great! It was essential to me to find a black female therapist. She has exceeded my expectations.

L.A.·Nov 02, 2021


She is a great listener, friend, and therapist. She took the time to get to know me, remembers important things about my life/names and attributes of my loved ones, and understands when to listen vs provide advice. I am so grateful for all of our conversations and the actionable guidance she has given me.

Dr Bonita is warm and nurturing. I had never done therapy before but she’s opened my eyes to how life changing therapy can be. I’ve been working with her for nearly three weeks now and have truly already noticed a difference. Together we make a really good time and I’m so glad I met her

She is amazing and supportive!!

A.S.·May 08, 2021


I absolutely love my therapist, she was so friendly and understanding but kept it very light which is what I like. I would recommend her to everyone I know

B.R.·May 03, 2021


Excellent advice, excellent listener. Has been extremely helpful.

S.E.·May 03, 2021


Dr. Vergara's strengths are in her ability to listen and quickly identify the challenges I am facing. Thought therapists are trained to neutral, not all of them have the ability to listen as she does and not draw a premature conclusion. This is very refreshing as i have been to other therapists without this characteristic.

C.Y.·Apr 20, 2021


Dr. Jackson-Vergara truly works to understand me and give me the best possible care. She’s so supportive and proactive and is really making a difference for me.

A.M.·Apr 02, 2021


Dr. Bonita is amazing!! Not only is she super friendly and easy to get along with, but she's supportive and respectful. Highly professional and dedicated to what is best for the patient. Talking with her is like talking to a friend. Sometimes, I forget its a therapy appointment because she makes you feel that comfortable and understood. She is very thorough and efficient in her explanations and does her absolute best to make sure we are always on the same page!! I am so happy I took the first step and can't wait to keep making progress!!

A.L.·Apr 01, 2021

B.R.·Feb 13, 2021

Dr. Jackson-Vergara has been a good sounding board for me and a great listener and has coached me through some pent-up emotions and the challenging times of quarantine. She is empathetic and takes a balanced approach and I look forward to my video calls with her. I would recommend her to others and would also look her up again whenever I feel like I could use counseling support.
