About Me

Welcome and thank you for your interest in letting me provide services for you! My name is Jeff and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Tennessee. I have been working in the field of mental health as a counselor for 12 years. I have worked in various settings including inpatient, outpatient, intensive outpatient, alcohol/drug, and crisis. I have counseled individuals with issues ranging from minor life stressors to severe, persistent mental illness and virtually everything in-between. I have a wealth of experience and would love to put my expertise to work for you.
My counseling style is based primarily on two approaches - Person-Centered Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I place a strong emphasis on rapport building and the therapeutic relationship. I believe that, without the foundation of a strong therapeutic alliance between counselor and client, significant change is unlikely or, at least, harder to achieve.
Consider giving me the opportunity and privilege of working with you. I would love to help you and get you closer to who/where you want to be in your life!

He is very caring and always has the patient's best interest. He listens to you no matter the issue.

Written by M.E. on Mar 25, 2020 after counseling with Jeffrey for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Jeffrey is a great and helpful counselor. He would listen to the concerns or problems that I had and would help me work through them without me feeling overwhelmed or being judged. He also understood on the type of way that I needed to be pushed in order to accomplish my goals of becoming mentally healthy. Even when I had to stop using BetterHelp he was very understanding and did not make me feel bad about making the choice I needed to at the time and hoped that I would reach out anytime things got bad. I felt that he was not in it for the money but in it for helping his clients achieve their goals of being healthy. Will definitely come back to him as a counselor when I can return. Thank you Jeffrey for all your help.

I've only spoken with Jeff twice, but I find him relatable and very open to talking about anything. He is very caring and knowledgeable and is willing to share some of his real-world experience while still keeping the focus on my mental health.

Jeff is excellent. He gives practical, real, every day tips that can help you manage whatever you're dealing with. These prevention tips were monumental for me.

Jeffrey is an absolutely amazing counselor. I feel so privileged to have him supporting me. We have only been working together for a short time, but already I have felt able to make changes to improve my anxiety and depression. Working with Jeffrey has changed my life for the better, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend working with him for a moment.

Jeffrey was a great fit for me, because he and I happened to have a lot in common and he could relate to my situations very well, making our sessions much easier than they could have been. He's very nice, polite, and is always interested in getting to what's truly causing the issues at hand. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for someone to talk to about relationships
