I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Georgia. I have over 10 years of experience in the mental health field. My specialties are working with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, stress management issues, and coping with life changes. I have experience with the following areas: mood disorders (particularly Bipolar Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder), anxiety, anger management, addiction, crisis stabilization, et-al. I operate from an eclectic Cognitive Behavioral theoretical perspective employing core concepts of humanism, and social work principles such as self determination and beneficence. I also incorporate elements of strengths based, solution focused, motivational interviewing and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I enjoy using meditation/relaxation exercises including guided imagery, body scan meditation, mindfulness, and progressive muscle relaxation.
I graduated with my Master's degree in Social Work from the University of Georgia in 2014. During my career I have enjoyed working with children, adolescents, adults, families and groups. I have worked as a Therapist in a Structured Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Program, a Substance Abuse Counselor in a Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program, a Child & Adolescent Group Therapist for a private practice, a Mental Health Counselor for the Georgia Department of Corrections, a Mobile Crisis Behavioral Health First Responder for the Georgia Crisis Access Line, a Behavioral Health Clinician in an Intellectual /Developmental Disability Crisis Home, and as a Social Work Graduate Assistant for the Department of Juvenile Justice. It would be a great pleasure to work with you and assist you in navigating the challenges you face.

I appreciate Jason's insights. He sees things in me that I don't. This has been invaluable in my growth and development.
Jason is fantastic. He's given me many new, healthy ways of coping. And so many resources to help me.
I've only had one session with Jason but from that one it already changed my view on life and how to manage my emotions. Strongly recommend Jason for young men in their early 20s navigating through life just as I am. Very helpful and responsive.
He is really good at both listening and speaking the right stuff
So far, Jason has shown that he listens to me and remembers my concerns and aspects about my life and personality. He uses his own experiences along with observations about mine to stimulate change. Jason asks the right questions and allows me to talk openly about my goals and hopes. Jason is compassionate and friendly and he is very encouraging.
He is so understanding and a great listener! I was able to realize my worth and remembered to focus on what makes me happy rather than negative past experiences.
Extremely observant and has an ability to connect like a long time friend. Has a great sense of direction and time when in an hour long session.
I’ve been meeting with Jason for a few weeks and he’s been a really great counselor. In addition to suggesting tangible things I can do to move past personal problems and improve my mental state, he’s been very responsive and a great listener during our video sessions. I’d definitely recommend him!
Jason is the best
When I joined Better Help i expected that a professional and I would dissect my brain and personality and would basically be working on me like a robot that needed to be fixed. Jason showed me that it wasn’t going to be like that, and that he’s a person trying to help a person. He’s helped me with compassion and understanding and kindness. While still an expert in his field, he has taken the time to help me dissect my brain and personality and understand it all better with a lot more kindness than i expected.
Great counselor, very responsive and helpful
