I am a licensed counselor with over 8 years of professional counseling experience. The majority of my experience are with clients who have experienced difficulty with a new transition (military, college, marriage, divorce) in life. I have worked with veterans, service members and their families since 2005. My experience includes those who have experienced trauma in the past, depression/anxiety and a host of other topics. Early in my career I knew that I had a passion and talent for working with people and helping those who were ready to take the next step. I believe in a warm and collaborative environment where the client and counselor create a plan for improvement and put that plan in motion through goal setting and action.
My favorite part of my job is seeing improvement and empowerment on the part of the client. Thank you for taking this big step and I look forward to meeting you!

I came to Jason during a very rough time in my life. We started working and dealing with my issues and past problems immediately as we stated sessions. Never once did I ever feel judged but completely supported and validated in the way I was processing everything including my emotions regardless of how irrational I may have thought they were. Jason brought astute observations that allowed me to view situations in a different perspective and even from other people‘s perspective. I have continued to work out those areas and have seen a huge lift in my energy, positivity, have continued to accomplish the goals I set forth with Jason. I have never been this happy in my life and Jason has helped set me up to handle situations that I can continue to build on and use in my daily life. His positivity and general composure was amazing and reassuring. I would 100% recommend Jason to anyone else going through something.

Jason provides positive feedback no matter the situation and passes no judgment. He listens attentively and responds when appropriate. He reiterates what it is I am feeling and going through, validating it, and understanding it. At the same time, he is able to steer me back in the right directions and guide me along the path I chose. I appreciate his candid approach as well which makes me feel supported and more open to share.

I’ve worked with a lot of counselors over the years and he has been the most helpful out of anyone. Very insightful. He has gotten me to live life rather than just going through the motions.
