About Me

As a licensed clinical social worker, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some amazing people all around the world. I am an active duty veteran who has worked with children, teens, spouses, GS employees, retirees, and active duty service members. With every client, it's my goal to make it a therapeutic collaboration and discover their strengths. How can I help guide them to where they want to be? I focus on a holistic approach through self-care and increased awareness. Self-care through physical activity, proper nutrition, sleep hygiene, meditation, and incorporating hobbies or passions into daily practice. These are not just skills I teach but are a part of my own self-care. I meditate daily whether it be mindfulness, guided, or progressive muscle relaxation. I work out 5 days a week with the intent of challenging myself and getting those endorphins firing. I am cognizant about nutrition and sleep in order to properly recover. I play guitar, write my own music, and love trying new activities. My self-care is crucial to staying centered and being the best possible provider for my clients.

Let's start working on a better you today. It would be my pleasure to come along side you during this journey.

I specialize in the following therapeutic modalities:
ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)
Addictions
CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)
DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy)
Mindfulness

Take care,
Justen

Written by K.A. on Oct 21, 2020 after counseling with Justen for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

Justen has been instrumental in my journey to wellness. I struggle with depression and anxiety. I have had a lot of issues trying to find a therapist who respects me and treats me as a person. Justen has provided this to me and gives me the tools I need to better myself. His guidance is sound, rooted in fact and helps me so much. I'm very grateful we got connected through this platform so I can get the help I need.

Being new to online counselling I wasn’t sure what to expect. But working with Justen made it comfortable, and easy. He was patient, and responded quickly. The time spent working with Justen made huge changes for myself and in my life during this time. Anyone would be lucky to work with him. He is genuine, straight forward, and never made me feel uncomfortable. The BH app sure has their algorithm worked out, I was thrilled to be matched with a great therapist.

He is the best therapist I've ever had. He's the most empathetic and caring person I've ever met, he doesn't sugar coat anything for you. He's as real as they come and that sort of realness is something that will forever help me in my journey. Thank you justen you're the absolute best!

I know this was a 100% positive review, but that’s truly how I feel.
I feel like I’ve come a long way since starting with BetterHelp and with Justen.
He has an empathy that makes me feel like I’m his only client. I appreciate him so much.

Justen is great! He really focuses on one problem at a time so I do not feel overwhelmed! He provides worksheets for me to work through and is really easy to talk to.

Justen is wonderful and kind. And has been such a help. :)

Written by L.U. on Jul 24, 2020 after counseling with Justen for 2 months on issues concerning addictions, and relationship issues

He just calls it as he sees it, and I don't have a lot of people that will do that in my life. It makes a huge difference

Written by Z.A. on Jun 30, 2020 after counseling with Justen for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Justen has been able to help me think through my issues with an outside perspective that has been so helpful. I was a wreck on our first call and he has been a stabilizing force these last few weeks. He's attempting to make me the best Zach I can be, and we're going to get there!

Written by R.I. on Jun 26, 2020 after counseling with Justen for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career difficulties

I took so much from our conversation. I really found Justen’s technique very helpful. He is a wonderful counselor and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Written by P.A. on Jun 22, 2020 after counseling with Justen for 2 weeks on issues concerning addictions, career difficulties, and coaching

Personable and good to work with. Don't feel judged and feel it's an educational engagement rather than a counseling service.

Written by S.H. on May 22, 2020 after counseling with Justen for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and anger management

With Justen we identified my issues early on and got to working on them straight away, he is a great person to talk too without judgement and I always leave the session knowing what I need to work on and with a great feeling of relief. I matched with Justen because of his expertise in DBT, he sends me regular worksheets which is very helpful as it reminds me too look after myself. I have felt so much better over the last few weeks and I would highly recommend Justen especially if you are looking into DBT.

Written by T.A. on May 19, 2020 after counseling with Justen for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and anger management

Justen is amazing and is extremely caring. He listens very well and gives me feedback that I appreciate so much. I’ve always been the type of person who has thought that talking to someone about my problems is a sign of weakness but he makes it easy to talk to him and makes me feel the exact opposite.
