About Me

First off, thank you for caring enough about yourself to be here today. You deserve to learn more about yourself and move towards something meaningful and fulfilling. That can take time, but you've already started today. Maybe we can relate over some similar hobbies/interests: rock climbing, playing the Tuba (Utah Wind Symphony), Chess, Backgammon, driving scooters, domestic/international travel (have traveled 29 countries), reading (self-help/philosophy/travel), and cooking (Asian/Indian/Italian cuisine). I have been practicing for 5 years in Salt Lake City/Farmington, Utah. I currently have a private practice in Davis and Salt Lake Counties. Clients like my accepting and non-judgmental approach to counseling. I am not afraid of a dynamic life and try to help you feel the same way. I approach treatment by helping you be mindful and aware of your thoughts/feelings, how they may hurt or help, and I stay solution-focused in helping you move towards something important. If you don't know what is important, we will talk about your values and move in a positive direction. I believe in exposure therapy and will help you try some things that seem difficult but could help you feel more confident in yourself. I am moving towards certification in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), specifically to help in Marriage Counseling. There are a few other things I like to discuss with clients in which I have good insight: performance anxiety (hobbies, employment, relationships), video game addiction, adjustment problems), feeling bored with life and having no idea how to find meaning, spirituality, dominate culture/religion and helping you find a good path, focus and motivation for desired achievements, and counseling regarding travel and pilgrimage.

Jeff is great! He is patient and kind. Being new to therapy, he has helped me feel comfortable sharing things and is good at helping me figure things out on my own by asking questions I don’t normally ask myself. All around he’s a really good guy and a great counselor.

Jeff is a very positive and helpful listener. He takes the time to make sure that my concerns are being addressed, and he helps me to believe in myself at a time in life when this can feel very difficult to do. He offers good advice and instruction and helps me to recognize unrealistic or negative thought patterns. I’m excited to be able to keep working with Jeff.

The time I work with Jeff was very beneficial. He was very available, gentle, thoughtful. He was continually seeking growth on his own which made sympathizing with shared problems sincere followed with appropriate resources. A balanced person with good advice.

Jeffery is a great listener without shaming.

Written by S.T. on Jun 27, 2017 after counseling with Jeff for 1 month on issues concerning relationship, parenting, anger, and career

I have been in therapy on and off the majority of my life. A good, understanding therapist is pretty hard to find. Jeffery has been a breath of fresh air in many ways. He offers a variety of ways to communicate and has a very flexible schedule. He has a sincere desire to help and makes it obvious he genuinely cares about our troubling situations and does everything he can put us on the path to healing. Thanks Jeff!

Jeffrey's approach is helpful. He seems to help you unfold some layers in a situation, and can walk you back enough to just look at it. And, he's good about asking questions. He might give you a small tasks or exercise at the end of the session.

Written by K.A on Feb 22, 2017 after counseling with Jeff for 3 weeks on issues concerning family, eating, and self esteem

I've really enjoyed my experience so far. He is very good at getting through all the craziness of life to the real deep set issues. He is also very personable and easy to talk to both online and during live sessions. Also, the materials and homework that he gives is very helpful.
