When you meet with John, you’ll be the most important person in the room. Your needs will be validated and supported. Your therapy sessions will be a time for self-exploration and self-nurturing. Within the safe container of the therapy space, you’ll be effectively guided to look deeper within yourself to learn more about your genuine motivations, goals, and needs.
Jason works with individual adults and older adolescents on a variety of conditions and concerns to overcome their internal barriers to effective change and greater life satisfaction. He’s also interested in working with people in the transgender and gender-diverse community, regardless of whether their needs are gender-based.
He believes that barriers to wholeness consist of more than just diagnosed disorders, and invites clients to bring other issues into sessions with the goal of seeking holistic healing.
Jason takes an eclectic approach to care, preferring to tailor therapeutic approaches to the needs of each individual client. He enjoys helping clients to brainstorm their own individualized solutions to problems, and considers the helping relationship between therapist and client to be a useful support in itself. He’s trained in EMDR and in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for the somatic (body-based) treatment of trauma. Other modalities that he uses include DBT, CBT, and person-centered psychotherapy.
Jason earned a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adams State University in Alamosa, Colo. His pre-graduate internship experience focused on the treatment of gender-based concerns through the Transgender Center of the Rockies in Sheridan, Colo. Prior to entering the counseling field, he had my own experiences as a client with mental health concerns, and feels that his time in treatment informs his approach and improves his ability to connect with and understand clients.
