Jacqualine C. Truitt (Jacque) founded PRO-ACT (then the NewLife Counseling Center & Family Institute) in 1990 as a solo practice. In order to meet the growing needs of clients, additional counselors began to join the practice. The practice has now grown to include three offices; the main office on Pasadena Blvd in Pasadena, a satellite at 617 West Sterling in Baytown, and a satellite office in the The Commons on Lake Houston.
Jacque has written two books and many feature articles. She is a co-author of Shelter from the Storm; Hope for Survivors of Sexual Abuse and she is the author of the facilitators guide for that same text. Her articles on marriage and family issues, substance abuse, sexual abuse, and women’s issues have been published in national magazines. Her most recent publication is a chapter on Hurting Women in the book Transformed Lives by LifeWay Press. Jacque has been quoted several times in the Dr. Phil magazine “The Next Level”.
Jacque and her husband David have two adult sons and two grandsons. They are members of Deer Park First Baptist Church where they teach an Adult Bible Fellowship class. Jacque and David have led marriage retreats and workshops on the local and national level. They have been married 49 years and love to share all they have learned about being married.
