Jeff’s theoretical orientation tends to be, humanistic, client-centered and solution focused. He also finds value in the process of examining the past but only in the context of moving forward toward a more compelling future. Jeff places a strong emphasis on emotional expression, emotional intelligence and clarity of communication as the foundation to personal and interpersonal growth.
Jeff also help’s clients identify patterns of mind or patterns of cognition as they relates to patterns of behavior. As Jeff states, “If we are not aware of our thoughts patterns, we cannot redirect our emotional habits.” Mindfulness is a strong part of Jeff’s therapeutic approach and counseling practice.
As Jeff states, “I am not only here to support clients through changes, I am also here to hold up the mirror for clients to view their own current state of mind which directly impacts their life circumstances. Clearly seeing oneself can promote healing, growth and maturation.”
