"I contacted Jaclyn when my marriage was breaking apart. At that time, my wife and I had recently been to a clinical psychologist for marriage counseling, but we were unable to break the logjams of communication which existed in our marriage. I was desperately searching for something..anything..that might help to save our relationship, and her specialty in couple's coaching represented my very last resort. Jaclyn shocked us both, by calling within hours of receiving my email..on a Saturday morning. I could hear the caring in her voice immediately, for two people she had not even met. She spent an hour on the phone, first with me and then us both on speaker, and her soft listening style was punctuated with direct, simple questions. That phone call changed our downward-spiral trajectory, and starting us talking again after our long silence. By the time we met with her a few days later, we had already made significant progress. Over the course of our sessions together, she then helped us make much more. In everything she said, and in everything she did, she left an indelible imprint of positivity upon me, and in the most memorable way, reinforced its awesome power. In the world of personal counseling, where everybody seems so impersonal, Jaclyn stands out before she even says a word."

Thank you Notes and Words of Praise

a sampling of appreciation from clients


"If you want to be taken on a journey of re-generation, transformation - full transformation - come see her. She knows how to get deep inside your emotions, find out what you’re clinging to, what you’re still dependent on - she’ll get to the heart of that and torch it. Gone. Like that."


"You are the very example of benevolent use of power."

"You are an amazing, soulful woman. Thank you for helping me re-claim my life and conquer an addiction that's been with me for decades. The loving, protective guidance you shared during our ceremony was something I've never experienced. I feel a new appreciation for my life after journeying with you. Thank you will never be enough."

"Beautiful Jaclyn... we've been wanting to write you for months, but we keep uncovering more revelations about the epic journey you guided us through so we keep adding more things to thank you for to the list. To start, C. and I cannot stop talking about how sincere and healing your presence was during the course of the ceremony. We've participated in dozens of medicine ceremonies before and have not received the gentle care and powerful healing that you shared with us in one evening. Your level of integrity is admirable and shows in the way you tended to us during our most vulnerable hours. That alone was transformative because it helped renew our faith in the goodness of hidden maestras like you who are the real deal. Second, our relationship has evolved dramatically since that night, and we are both surprised that after being married to each other for 10 years, there were still new, deeper, wonderful places for us to discover within each other and our relationship. C. also wanted me to share that his work life feels lighter and his funky depression has lifted. As for me, I want to thank you for showing me myself in a way I haven't seen myself in many years. I feel gracious and strong, and I wake up and meditate with those feelings every morning. Other things we want to thank you for: the medicine songs (wow), your angel-dog Samantha, how at home you made us both feel in your beautiful space, and your smile. We are forever thankful to have found you."

"You continue to be the most mysteriously inspiring person I know."

"I can't thank you enough for the insights and wisdom you've provided over the last two years. Before I found you, I knew there was a better way to navigate my life and my company, but I couldn't put a finger on what needed to change inside me to set things in motion. Thank you for leading me to better understand my motivations and desires. I'm also still amazed at how intimately you understand an industry you never set foot in and are able to be my spiritual Wendy Rhodes when needed. You are truly a gifted woman. The relationship between [my business partner] and I has never been better, tensions are at ease, and we continue to feel more passionate about the changes we are implementing. Thank you again, Jaclyn, for everything you've done for me."

"I wanted to reach out and say thank you for the meditation last night. You have such a beautiful soul. I wish we could clone you, as the world needs to be filled with people like you! Every time I'm around you, I feel this strong, loving vibration... and the vibration in your house is unbelievable. I just wish every place felt like that."

“We see you as invaluable to us. I’m sure it’s not the first time you’ve heard this, but we mean it from our hearts. You’ve helped guide us back to each other.”

"Hello, my dear Jaclyn! I wanted to send you a message to let you know how deeply grateful I am for the breathtakingly beautiful and intuitive ceremony I got to experience with you and your amazing assistant, Estefania. Words can not express the impact it has had on my life. I've spent a lot of time ever since in deep reflection about the beauty and art of what you do. You are like a paleontologist of the soul, unearthing what is deep and ancient. Yes, for the person seeking to be healed, you are also like a midwife guiding this part of them that feels so new to them...Your assistant was like a doula, providing nourishing support and encouragement as she pleaded with us to see who we really are and have always been. I was in awe of how her tenderly sweet, yet powerful essence radiated pure love that melted away any doubt of the truth she spoke to us. You compliment each other so incredibly..."

"Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are a compassionate and gifted healer. I feel liberated, grounded, and 'myself' again, after last weekend's meditation. Thank you for the heart-opening experience. What beautiful work you do."

Sophie C.


"I want to thank you for your contribution to my life and tell you how much I trust the role you play for me. You are unlike anyone I’ve ever met, and words don’t express how grateful I am for the way you’ve shifted my consciousness at such a deep and subtle level. I know in my heart you were placed on earth to touch and uplift the spirits of people like me."



"You listen with your heart."




"I'm so happy to have you in my life. I can't believe I found you and how instrumental you have been since I stepped over the line. I hope I know you for a very long time.”


Carmel, CA

“You’ve been full of methods to transform my life. Thank you for that. I’m finally beginning to understand the rhythms of success. Despite having met my initial goals, I look forward to continuing to work with you throughout the years because I see no end to my potential growth, and I credit you with opening my eyes to that. I don’t think I’d be in such a content place if I didn’t have your support.”

Chris K.


“You’re like the one who escaped from Plato’s cave and saw the real sun. Now you’re back down here trying to convince the rest of us that we’re just looking at shadows.”

Scott B.


“I just wanted to say thank you one more time. I can’t even describe this change I feel I’m going through. I have often felt so lost, like I don’t belong here, but speaking with you makes me realize that’s not true at all. I think you are one of the most beautiful spirits I have ever met. All of my sessions with you are impactful and I just wanted to share my appreciation for you. Thank you.”

"Thank you so much for making the time to meet with me and then arrange a Sacred Hapé Ceremony. I truly appreciate it and will never forget it. I waited to write this and send it to you until I returned home, as I wanted my thoughts/feelings to blossom into a more intentional, sincere, and meaningful message before sharing them. I hope you find them meaningful. 

The two hours I spent with you the day before the Sacred Hapé Ceremony allowed me to unpack some of my current life challenges and prepare intentions for the ceremony. I truly feel you genuinely listened to me and gave great authentic feedback, which validated not only my purpose for being at your office/home but also future holistic growth. Thanks!

The Sacred Hapé Ceremony – WOW! I am glad I ingested a moderate portion of the sacred plant medicine in just one nostril; it was sufficiently blissful! I would be extremely hard pressed to think of two more perfect angels with whom to have initiated me into this new realm of healing and insight. Jessica's and your guiding me through this sacred ritual helped me bridge what is with what can be, leaving me with a clearer vision of my 'why' (A person who has a why to live for can bear almost any how - Nietzsche). The ambience made me feel safe, comfortable, loved, respected, and ripe for what was about to come. The positive, honest energy radiating throughout the ceremony allowed me to relax, trust the process, and ingest the sacred plant medicine with confidence. Truth be told, I was a little unsure and a little concerned how it would affect my brain and body, but shortly after receiving the medicine and purging, I began to experience intense emotions with a heightened mental state that centered around God, my wife, purer connectivity with God/others, inner strength, physical realignment, and finding genuine, grounded peace. Overall, it was one of the most piercing experiences I ever had. The share afterwards allowed me to process what happened and some next steps.

I still feel the effects of the ceremony and look forward to building upon them. Principally, I’m more cognizant of myself and already working gradually to realign my life. My intentions (my wife, my business, and my holistic self) are what I’ll be concentrating on for the near future. This cosmic do-over/reset you facilitated for me will serve as the base of my new pilgrimage, attempting to weave eternal truths into my daily life, consistently and lovingly. 


...You may not need to hear this because you are such a remarkably strong, self-sufficient, graceful woman, but I need to express it: you are one of the loveliest, purest, sincerest persons I have ever met in my life. Your desire to help people is your forte, grace, and blessing; it is tremendously inspiring to me!!! Thank you!!! Please be assured of my prayers, best wishes, and blessings for continued success."

From Students
a sampling of anonymous reviews, posted at "Rate My Professor"
"Excellent professor. Best of the best. Take every class you can with her before some other planet recruits her for their more advanced civilization."

"I love Professor Costello. She is so generous & caring with her feedback, while also being very honest. She's actually the most intimidatingly aware person I've ever met. I felt like she was seeing right through to the innermost workings of my brain and heart every time she gave me feedback. It was beyond helpful for me as a student and a human." 

"She's the best professor I had during my four years at UNLV. I've taken her three times and she gets more fascinating every year...or maybe I'm getting smarter so I appreciate her more every year!? She is just amazing. I'm so lucky I was a student when she was still teaching in person (even though the online classes are still good!) Brilliant soul."

"She is amazing!! Best discussions in this class. She really cares about you as a person not just as a student. I think she sets the bar high, but it feels like everyone reaches it because all her students love her and she brings out the best in them. She brought out a new side of me that I love. Also- the documentaries she shows are the greatest!!"

"I started my college experience with Costello and just took my last class with her. My best advice is to dive in with an open mind. Her classes - and her as a person - totally transformed me and my outlook on the world. She just exudes some kind of magic that goes way beyond regular intelligence, and she kind of brings that magic out of you too :)"

"Someone wrote in our final online discussion: 'I swear this particular class makes everyone's brains enter a higher level of consciousness...' and that about sums up Costello. She is brilliant, a great story-teller, soulful and FUNNY!"

"Life changing teacher. She is simultaneously the most abstract, expansive, open-minded thinker - and also so grounded, relatable, and earthy. I feel like she pulls wisdom from a higher dimension and translates it into Earth language. If you're stuck in a box and unwilling to take a peek outside, this class may not be for you (but you need it!!) This is my fourth honors class with Professor Costello. If that doesn't give you a feel for my admiration of her, I don't know what else will. She is DIVINE. So interesting, adventurous, great lectures, great writer, amazing."

"I think the goal of education and that of a teacher is not to merely teach, but rather to cultivate and instill a sense of wonder and curiosity in students' minds. Professor Costello does just that. Look elsewhere if you just want an easy A. Take her class if you want to widen your perspective and have your mind blown."

"Brilliant mind. Beautiful soul. Take her... take her... take her!!!!"

"This class and professor are the GOAT!! My mind exploded every discussion we had. Take her for whatever class you can. You will not regret it."

"I've never learned so many fascinating things about the world in such a fun and challenging class. She isn't the kind of professor who just learned from books. She lives an adventurous, fascinating life and understands things on a really deep level. She'll tell you wild stories that relate to what you're learning and make everything 'click.'"

"I loved this professor and this class. Somehow this class was the most challenging and most fun at the same time. Professor Costello is not your regular professor either. She is HILARIOUS and so intelligent and warm-hearted. I never felt intimidated sharing my thoughts in class. I learned more in this class than any other class I've ever taken."

"Nicest woman you'll ever meet. Creates very interesting conversation during class. She really makes you think. Definitely take her."

"She's helped me so much in my life. Someone said 'this is a soul enrichment class' and I agree. Don't get me wrong, you'll learn all kinds of academic material, but there is something greater and more subtle in her teachings that can't be easily quantified. She's tapped into something eternally wise. I'd even call it holy if I wasn't a bio major :)"

"It takes a special kind of teacher for me to wake up in the morning excited to go to class. Prof Costello could teach ANYTHING and make it interesting - she's an incredible human who's mastered the art of extracting what's most important in any subject and presenting it in such a relevant way to your life, that you can't help but want to learn more."

"She's kind of a force of nature. One of the other students in our class said she wanted to eat Professor Costello's heart to harness her powers (Uhhh she was joking but that's the kind of response this Professor gets.) I honestly feel like I'm a different person after experiencing this class."
