Licensed Professional Counselor & Assistant Clinical Director of Alexandria
Jack graduated from the College of William and Mary with a B.S. in Psychology and recently finished his graduate work at Regent University with a M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Throughout his studies, Jack has seen and worked with many clients, both with adolescents and adults, struggling with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, adjustment issues, and even people with a desire to get to know themselves just a little bit better! The more Jack has worked with people, the more a simple truth has come to light: You are not alone!
Finding a therapist can be daunting, but engaging in the therapeutic process can allow for growth, improvement in functionality, and changes that will help bring about strength and joy in everyday life. Jack has worked most extensively with young adults and adults, helping with issues such as depression, anxiety, focus and attention, trauma, loneliness, obsessive/compulsive issues, and adjusting to changes in life.
Jack believes that success in therapy results from a combination of understanding first what is dysfunctional, and then where the dysfunction comes from. Finally, changing a behavior resulting from the thoughts or emotions driving the dysfunction can result in truly powerful changes in life. He mainly uses Cognitive Behavior Therapy, EMDR, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy to help attain the goals of his clients. Through these techniques, Jack enters into a relationship with his clients and gets to understand and hear their full story, providing a safe environment for vulnerability.
Jack provides enthusiasm in his work, an up-to-date approach to therapy, and a desire to help clients gain holistic wellness, valuing the therapeutic relationship in order to achieve client goals.
