When you're tired or hurting and want to make some healthy changes, we need to talk. One of the comments I often hear from clients is "you make me think!" as they find new ways of dealing with their problems.
Hello, I'm Jeff. I'm a licensed therapist who's spent 40+ years helping people through their toughest challenges. My work has been in a variety of settings including in-patient hospitals, halfway houses, homeless shelters, school counseling offices, college classrooms, church counseling, and outpatient clinics. Those experiences give me a broad and deep perspective on the struggles people go through.
In my own life, I grew up in a blended family. So I am personally familiar with all the drama that brings. I have been married for over 35 years to the same woman and have three wonderful sons, who were homeschooled. Presently, I am also involved in the care of a parent with dementia. These experiences give me insights and understanding into the challenges families and individuals face.
I make extensive use of psychodynamic techniques, and cognitive behavioral therapy approaches. From grief, guilt, difficulty coping and relationship issues, to recovering from infidelity and addiction- if you're looking for help with your struggles like these, I want to talk with you first!
I have always been passionate about helping people with the challenges they face in life. I want to see you succeed and improve your life. I've worked with clients across a wide range of concerns including low self-esteem, discouragement, relationship issues, codependency, recovering from infidelity and addiction but also career challenges or caregiving for elderly parents. There are times you may feel overwhelmed and unable to handle things on your own terms - that's when it can be helpful to learn new ways of handling them! Reach out today if any of these topics resonate for you; there is hope available here at my practice now more than ever before!"
I am committed to providing compassionate care tailored specifically around each individual needs while working collaboratively as partners toward addressing their goals together. Whether it's addiction, enabling, communication, relationship, or depression-related issues, working together will help you through them.
My aim is to provide a safe, supportive place where you can be yourself and work on your goals. I listen carefully to clients, take the time needed to understand their situation, and develop thoughtful ways of helping them address what they need in their lives. I believe that everyone has untapped strengths which can help them recover from difficulties or achieve the goals of their life.
