It's not about me, it's about you becoming the best you that you can be, overcoming whatever has been holding you back, and pursuing your dreams. If you're really interested in me though... I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) with 23 years of experience in social services (8 years LPC), find fulfillment in helping others to become fulfilled, am a happily married father of two (boy and a girl), enjoy playing music, am a lifelong learner, and have benefited from the exposure gained by traveling the world.
My career has been varied and broad. I have helped young people find their path, adults define their purpose, and older souls examine transitions. My professional practice has included extensive experience treating people with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, personality disorders, IDD (intellectual and developmental disabilities), TBI (traumatic brain injuries) and other conditions; but more importantly, I am here to LISTEN! No matter where a person is in life, my goal is to help those that I serve to FULFILL THEIR POTENTIAL!
I base my practice on an integrative approach which uses tools drawn from sources such as Motivational Interviewing, CBT, REBT, Multi-Modal Therapy, Mindfulness, and other useful "classical" orientations. These techniques are incorporated and organized within a framework (general orientation) of Positive Psychology. In other words, I uses proven, evidence-based therapies to help you FULFILL YOUR POTENTIAL!

Jacques has a fantastic way of allowing me to look at things from different angles and take me away from the trigger points which helps me see things for what they really are.
He's compassionate, he's a good listener, he responds to me in a professional yet carrying way. I think he's cool for a Counselor!
