About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in North Carolina with over 13 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and life coach. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of clients coping with a range of issues including PTSD, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I have also helped athletes, musicians and actors toward peak performance.

My counseling style is friendly, authentic, and warm. I strongly believe that everyone is fundamentally healthy and whole, and that therapy is about uncovering this fundamental health, not about focusing on pathology. I treat the person, not the "disease." My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, body-centered, contemplative, and psychodynamic approaches. When appropriate, I sometimes use EMDR and clinical hypnosis. I will tailor my approach based on what I feel is appropriate for you.

It's fantastic that you have taken the step of seeking help and support. I am honored to have the opportunity to assist you in your journey.

Looking forward to getting started together!

Jeff is absolutely top notch. He’s prompt, understanding, informative and knowledgeable.

Written by C.H. on May 12, 2020 after therapy with Jeff (Jeffery) for 4 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, anger management, bipolar disorder, and coaching

I’m not a review writer and Jeff has a way about himself I couldn’t explained if I had a year and 10,000 words - but - from the smallest things like intonation to the biggest things like a thorough and deep understanding of all the wildness in my head and the tension it brought to my life — I feel like we talk and the time flies. I wish longer sessions were available even if it was like every fourth or fifth session.

Written by C.R. on Feb 01, 2020 after therapy with Jeff (Jeffery) for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Jeff is a calm and collected person who allows his expertise to relate things in a way which you can understand. He untangles your thoughts to help you better understand who you are and which way is best to go about and handle your problems. He doesn’t “fix” you he helps give you the tools to “heal” yourself. I’m very grateful for Jeff.

Written by M.A. on Dec 28, 2019 after therapy with Jeff (Jeffery) for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Jeff is an excellent counselor. He truly tries to understand the person and discusses issues in a supportive and direct way. I would recommend him to anyone like me who is struggling with anxiety. I've felt I can really share anything with him without judgement; he is extremely personable and gives insight that is more than just "do this worksheet". He offers unique advice to handle stress in day to day life. I've only had a few sessions with him, but I'm hopeful that our sessions will continue to help my progression as an individual.
