Meet Jeff

Jeff has a unique background that allows him to approach mental health with a wide lens. He believes that comfort is a large factor in a client’s success. Therefore, his primary goal is to help clients feel comfortable. This is done by creating a safe space where people feel secure, heard, and seen.

During treatment he aims to make sure clients understand the problems that they face. By learning to recognize and understand the problems, people can begin the healing process. His approach is very much client-led. In other words, he allows clients to help create their own treatment plan. Giving clients a chance to work with him on solutions can strengthen their focus and motivation. As a result, they will be more likely to reach their goals.

In addition to his career, Jeff enjoys being creative and working with his hands. He can be found dabbling in the building trades, woodworking, painting and gardening.
