My name is Jack Register and I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and a licensed clinical addiction specialist (LCAS). I received my graduate degree in 2000 from the Joint Masters of Social Work program between the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and NC A&T State University. Since receiving my degree I have worked in settings where clients with medical conditions like cancer, HIV/AIDS, kidney failure, addiction, and/or co-occurring mental illness have been present.
I have years of experience in working with adolescents and adults who struggle with active or family history of addiction and mental illness. I have facilitated groups for families and active addicts as well. I believe in a recovery model of care and can incorporate the 12 step model and other functional models of recovery into care. I use a holistic approach to working with my clients and believe in finding strengths and resiliency first.
I also have experience working with men struggling to find identity and with those who have been abused by faith practices that discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals. I am queer identified and trans affirming in my practice and my work. I also have experience in working with queer & trans identified people who have co-occurring mental health/addiction issues because of oppression and discrimination. I also am experienced in working with queer & trans identified people who have sexual addiction & codependency issues. I have training and experience in helping transgender individuals walk through transition successfully.
I am trained and experienced in doing one-on-one therapy with adults, adolescents and children. I am also trained and experienced in doing group therapy and family therapy. I have specific training working with children, adolescents, and adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression, anger, have self harming thoughts or behaviors, or are trying to heal from a traumatic event.
I use a combination of techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psycho Dynamic Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, & Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I begin my work with clients, during the assessment phase, using a developmental lens to see where folks are now in relation to where they wish to be. I can also discuss spiritual aspects of care as well. I will give homework assignments and give readings that may be useful for those interested in self study. I can incorporate the 12 step model of recovery with those struggling with codependency or addiction and have extensive experience working with families around issues of chronic illness & diseases like cancer, HIV/AIDS, kidney failure, mental illness like schizophrenia, or chronic poverty.
I hold these qualifications: 1) I have a master's degree in social work from the joint program between University of North Carolina at Greensboro and A&T State University, whose program is approved by the Council of Social Work Education (CSWE). 2) I hold current licenses to practice as a clinical social worker, and as a clinical addiction specialist in the state of North Carolina (LCSW & LCAS). 3) I am licensed and hold certifications in clinical supervision for addiction and clinical social work.

Jack is helping me gain perspective and insight that I would otherwise find more difficult to access on my own. I look forward to working more with Jack.
Jack is very accommodating to my needs when it comes to our meetings as well as my plan of action. He is caring, sympathetic as well as empathetic (which you don't always find). He has a lot of great tools to share and a great personality. He isn't afraid to share his story with you so that you don't feel so alone and I really think that helps make the connection that much more :)
