I am a Professional Licensed Counselor, in Missouri, with over 20 years of experience. I have worked with very troubled youths and families in residential treatment centers and I have extensive experience working with military personnel and veterans, of which I am also one. My education and experience has helped me to appreciate the diversity of cultures, faiths, philosophies, values and perspectives of my clients. I appreciate the importance of developing resiliency to weather life's storms. I try to use a warm, relaxed, light approach to create an environment in which my clients can best maximize their counseling experience. I rely on the well-researched efficacy of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to address a wide array of conditions which may be impacting work and personal relationships. I utilize my strong empathetic ability along with effective active listening skills to help my clients feel understood. I try to assist them in achieving goals that they determine for themselves.
Problems, while not usually welcomed, often lead to greater personal growth and development. My personal philosophy is that if we are growing than we are really living. But, growth means change and change can be uncomfortable. I will be happy to offer you guidance and support as you take the next steps in your growth.

I feel confident in the route Jeff has taken me. He is knowledgeable about my issues and confident in my treatment.
Jeff has been extremely helpful to me to understand and reframe things that are happening in my life.
Very knowledgeable and supportive
Jeff is a fantastic listener and gives great advice. He has pushed me to think about things in a different way and understand how my past has affected my decision making in the present. I highly recommend him to anyone!
He is amazing at what he does. I came into my sessions with several issues and we tackle them one at a time. He has given me different ways of looking at things and is available when I need to talk. He responds very quickly and has great techniques!
Jeff is very kind, thoughtful and skilled at getting to the truth and offering tangible solutions to change my way of thinking. He's compassionate and really wants to help.
Jeff is amazing, and a counselor I would 10/10 recommend to anyone looking to find the right counselor.
Mr Cohen is great and professional. Very helpful
I have really enjoyed communicating with Jeff. He had me look at things differently so I could where my thinking was getting skewed.
Jeff is a great listener and understands the issue that brought me to counseling. I admire how he is very knowledgeable and thorough in explaining the counseling process to me.
I have only worked with Jeff for a short period of time.
I do look forward to our talks, and its nice to get 1-2 responses a day.
He always brings up different points that I never even considered or realized.
