He is passionate about co-exploring the roots of issues of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, low self-worth, co-occurring disorders, interpersonal relationship problems, anger, shame, and a range of problematic emotional and mental health issues. He helps his clients connect with their core selves, so they may engage internally and externally in authentic ways. He will provide a trauma-informed, safe, and supportive atmosphere for his clients to explore and adapt their beliefs, thoughts, and feelings.

Jason enjoys meeting with clients who are also dealing with issues related to purpose in later stages of life. He specializes in clients who are dealing with co-occurring disorders of mental health and substance abuse or behavioral addictions.
