About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has a passion for utilizing evidence-based practices in a creative and unique way to ensure the best care for his clients. I enjoy working with clients of all ages, but has a specific interest in working with young adults who are struggling with life changes, anxiety, depression, trauma, and daily stresses of life.

After graduating from the University of Central Florida with my Master’s degree in Social Work, I have worked in a variety of settings such as inpatient substance abuse treatment centers, hospitals, and community mental health centers. I have also worked directly with school systems to provide psycho-educational programs to middle school and high school students. I have worked with Boys & Girl’s club to facilitate life-skills groups and to provide one-on-one services as needed.

I apply my “live, love and laugh a lot” mentality to not only my personal life but to counseling as well. I believe that building a trusting relationship with his clients is an integral part of therapy and helping people reach their goals. I am passionate about empowering my clients to overcome life’s challenges through making positive choices and lasting changes.

In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors and staying active. My hobbies include fishing, scuba diving, mud runs, and hiking. I look forward to helping others reach their goals and await the opportunity to work with you.

Jared was my first BetterHelp match and I feel like I got a perfect match. He is so direct with you and he gives you helpful information and tools to help deal with things. Although it takes effort outside of appointments to really work on yourself, Jared made it very easy for me to feel confident and rational outside of our sessions.

He's fantastic. He listens and understands exactly what I'm talking about and how I feel

I’m grateful for the help I have been able to get so far. I was shocked by how great Jared is. After our first session I knew BetterHelp had done a good job with matching us together. Im sure things will only continue to get better from here.
