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!

LPC #64978 (Expires: 2021-04-01)
Jacques, is knowledgeable and resourceful. He is a good listener and is relaxed with his approach which creates a kind and comfortable invitation to explore more.
After speaking with Tanner for the last three weeks, my only wish is that I could talk with him for even longer. One hour, once a week never feels enough! I always look forward to speaking with him again in the following week. He is a terrific guy with some great insights and advice. He listens to my issues even if I feel like I am repeating myself weekly.
He is impeccable!
Tanner has been amazing! He listens to me perfectly and offers me valuable feedback, which I appreciate immensely. I have waited years to find such a talented therapist and counselor. I feel I have made more progress in my 4 months with Tanner than I have in the last 20 years.
Tanner is attentive and is always ready to address any concerns I log in my journal. He always responds to my journal entries and messages in a timely manner, so I feel connected and supported between sessions. In addition to helping me with life's ad hoc events, he is also mindfully helping me navigate the development pathway that we plotted out at the start.
I am genuinely excited for the future knowing I am heading in the right direction now!
All I can sayis Jacques is the best of the best.
Great guy, does a tremendous working on helping you achieve your goals.
I highly recommend Jacques Noguess. He is an extremely knowledgeable, experienced and talented professional. I have been doing counseling with him for over a year now and it has significantly improved my quality of life. He has walked me through numerous methods and techniques to deal with depression and anxiety problems. He has shared insights that thoroughly transformed the way I see things and my understanding of my own life, emotions and relationships. He is very compassionate and a pleasure to speak with every week. He is not only a wonderful listener but also gives sensible and useful advice when needed. I can't thank him enough for all his help and support. I highly recommend him!
I’ve found him very helpful
Amazing and always there for me.
I have just started with Betterhelp, but I can already say that I really like Tanner (Jacques' middle name) a lot as my counsellor! Not only does he listen, but also give really good advice if I ask for it. He encourages me and at the end of our past session, I felt a real wave of hope and faith. Talking to him is easy for me (even though my English is not perfect). I can really recommend talking to Tanner! Also: Not for one second did I feel judged.
He is a very good listener and he has a lot of knowledge and experience about psychology and empathy. Unlike most of the therapists, he is more focused on the solutions than the reasons from the past. He understands me even when I can't express myself very well and after every session I was told by my friends that I look happier and more positive.
I feel comfortable and safe working with Jacques. I am grateful to be working with him and for his support
He’s very knowledgeable, compassionate, attentive and easy to talk to. I felt like he was my mentor on my first counseling session. By my third session, I was able to talk to him as if he is a close friend of mine. I highly recommend him!
He's so great!
Highly recommend! Tanner is experienced, insightful and knowledgeable. Through perspectives and introspection, I've regained my autonomy and have the resources to maintain it.
Speaking to Jacques every Monday continues to be the highlight of my week. I recently moved to a new country and was suddenly accosted by severe anxiety and depressive feelings. Jacques makes me think beyond my immediacy--he weaves in research, philosophy, personal experience and so much more in between. When one feels isolated, a meaningful conversation and the gentleness as well as the lack of judgement associated with that interaction can give a person the strength to carry on. Jacques is the first counsellor I have ever spoken to in my life. I wish I had the privilege and the pleasure of knowing him much earlier. I believe he genuinely cares for the things I am going through and with each session I end up trusting him more. For this alone, I am filled with gratitude.
Jacques is very helpful and insightful. I have found his insights into my various struggles to be both thoughtful and challenging. During our time together he has been both supportive and willing to help me to view some of my problems from different perspectives which has been helpful in trying to get some of it sorted out. I would judge him to be both competent and compassionate as a counselor and would recommend him highly.
