About Hudson Counseling Services

When you choose a counseling practice or an individual counselor, you want to know as much about them as possible so you can determine if they are a good fit for your needs.

Our History

Hudson Counseling Services was founded in 1989 and has been well established in the Hudson community for almost 30 years. Dr. Peter Nasseff started the practice and worked with his wife to build and nurture it; he served as the sole practitioner and she managed the administrative and bookkeeping duties.

As part of his effort to build and strengthen Hudson Counseling Services, Dr. Nasseff worked diligently to create relationships with Hudson Hospital, Hudson Physicians, Baldwin Area Medical Center, Osceola Medical Center and other community associations. These bonds mean that our patients have numerous outside resources that we can draw on if your individual situation warrants more medical assistance.

Other practitioners became part of Hudson Counseling Services as we grew. In 2001, Mary Jacks joined the practice. After many years of forging relationships with patients, Mary Jacks purchased the practice in January 2015. Her goal was simple: To continue helping others in the same vein as Dr. Nasseff had for so many years. Dr. Nasseff retired in Sept. 2017.

We strive to:

  • Walk with clients -- individuals, couples and families -- to support you on your path to balance, wholeness and wellness.
  • Help identify healthier patterns of interactions with yourself and others.
  • Allow you to make your own choices as to what feels right for you.
  • Help process trauma and cope with grief and loss.
  • Help increase coping skills for life's challenges.
  • Manage life transitions.
  • Help individuals know they are not alone and there is help.
