Personal Statement

Jeff grew up in a small New England coastal town, and went to college at Wheaton outside of Chicago. He majored in psychology, and minored in biology. He has always had a heart to help others, and his experiences in Chicago shaped his decision to become a mental health therapist. During that time, his course work involved learning about the vast cultural neighborhoods and communities that make Chicago thrive.

He spent most of his work time in Denver helping in the start of a mentoring program for kids in the Denver probation system called Friends for Youth. After meeting his wife in Denver, she finished her schooling, and they moved to Baltimore, MD where he completed his masters in social work at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. He interned with the Baltimore City Department of Social Services working in foster care, and then at the Department of Veterans Affairs in their substance abuse program. After graduating, he worked in foster care and then became a therapist for both a residential diagnostic center for teens and a non-public high school. He and his wife and kids moved to Colorado Springs, CO due to her connection to the city – her father being a retired 1st SGT last stationed at Ft. Carson. Jeffrey worked as a therapist and then clinical supervisor at Pikes Peak Mental Health, now called AspenPointe, with adults – mostly men and women struggling with severe and chronic mental illness.

He then worked close to four years at the Department of Veterans Affairs here in Colorado Springs, specializing in PTSD treatment for all era combat veterans, and couples therapy. Before launching into private practice in 2014, he was a program manager at AspenPointe over their Comprehensive Health Services Program to adults struggling mostly with severe depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.

My Approach to Helping I truly believe that healing comes from exploring and working through what “comes up” in your mental, physical, energetic, and spiritual bodies.
