Hello, my name is Jacob Price, LMHC, age 35. I'm licensed in the state of Florida and graduated with a Master's Degree in 2013 in the field of Counseling and Psychology from Troy University. Since that time I have worked in several different areas in the mental health/substance abuse treatment field. I worked in community mental health at Lakeview Center in Pensacola, FL as an assessment specialist, a mental health counselor as well as a substance abuse counselor and a case manager. I have also opened a private practice in Pensacola,FL called Inner Peace Pensacola. I have primarily seen males and female adults both individually and as couples.
I provide a person centered approach to counseling that allows you to be yourself and learn about yourself without feeling judged. It's been my experience that people are able to achieve the most change and learn the most about themselves whenever they feel at ease. If a person feels listened to and their therapist shows empathy, genuineness and unconditional positive regard the person is able to feel validated and experience positive therapeutic growth. I want to walk alongside you in your journey to wellness, not pull you in the direction that I think is best. You are capable of thriving and not just surviving and I'm here to help you find your natural wellness. Treatment approaches I use include cognitive behavior therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, Meditation, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Reality Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Three Principles Psychology.
I have 4 years of experience as a master's level counselor in treating anxiety, depression, PTSD, relationship issues, substance abuse issues and helping others deal with grief and loss. I believe in using a mindfulness based approach that allows you to learn how to feel instead of avoiding emotions so that you can learn to see feelings for what they are, your body's response to your thoughts. I want to help you find the strength to thrive and live a passionate life filled with accomplished goals as well as the resilience needed to deal with life's difficulties.
Thank you for taking the time to look over my profile. I look forward to the opportunity to help you learn how to live a rich and fulfilling life.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
I also have experience in LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Anger management, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder

Jacob is a skilled listener with focused insight.
Jacob is an excellent therapist and discussion partner. While he is casual and down-to-earth, after only a few sessions it becomes obvious that he is very smart and knowledgeable on a wide range of topics. Jacob gently nudges me towards identifying and dealing with the issues in my life (in my mind) and my experience has been very positive and meaningfully helpful to me. I look forward to our weekly sessions, to make progress on my issues or sometimes just to talk to an intelligent human being for an hour.
Jacob is kind and a good listener. He has given me the knowledge and the tools to overcome a lot! He reminded me that I wasn’t alone, and that I didn’t have to identify with my thoughts and feelings. Freedom feels good!
Jacob is a solid counselor. Not only is he friendly and approachable, but he is very well grounded in knowledge and techniques for helping me better myself. Jacob is very task oriented but operates in a very organic and natural flow. Jacob is really adept in breaking things down logically and he can really open up some great points to consider. Don't be surprised if you have thought-provoking introspection long after your visit. If you're looking for results and a counselor who wants you to reach your potential, Jacob Price is the counselor for you.
Very good, professional, helpful, understanding.
He’s... he’s something. First time I met anyone who agrees with me on some less-than-pleasant topics. First time I meet a guy who at least tries (and weirdly enough, succeeds) to understand me. At least the parts of me that I understand. He helps me brainstorm over the parts I don’t understand. He knows what to ask and when to ask it. When I first was introduced to him, I thought it’s a 90’s style scam, back when this sort of thing was a fever dream. Never thought he’d be friendly as he is. Is he a real therapist? I don’t know, and at this point, don’t care. He’s doing this thing right. Worth every penny.
He felt immediately approachable and understanding, as the sessions went by I felt comfortable opening up and sharing. He has always been supportive and has motivated a lot of conversations that I didnt think I could have. I appreciate his help and recommend him deeply.
Very happy to be working with Jacob. I am confident in his ability and would recommend him to anyone. Easy to work with and trust worthy.
I have been with BetterHelp only for a short while, but since working with Jacob, I feel that he has helped me in many aspects, and look forward to continue working with him.
I have been through a lot of helpers, therapists, doctors and other types of professionals in my life and I have never before met someone as understanding, kind, compassionate and altogether nice as Jacob. He truly manages to make me feel calm and understood. And it definitely helps that we agree on all the most important life philosophies. Problems that I've spent most of my life trying to cope with has begun to melt away after just a few months of talk with Jacob. If I didn't know any better, I'd think this man had actual magical powers.
Jacob helped transform my anxiety into something I can cope with on a daily basis. My daily interactions in work, relationships and life are simply amazing waking up each day looking forward to the new challenges and steps that I have learned with Mr. Price's guidance. If you suffer from depression, anxiety or anger issues you will not go wrong by having Mr. Price plan to your best benefit.
Taking this step and seeking counseling is one of the smartest decisions I made, and Jacob has been very professional and helpful.
Jacob is amazing. He makes you feel that he is your friend. His approach in solving your issues is based on helping you to discover your potential and to be aware of your capabilities and your feelings.
