Jake offers individual therapy to those 10 yrs and older. He has previously worked in Private Practice, military rehabilitation, and youth mental health. He is passionate in assisting individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, grief & loss, anger management, sleep difficulties…

Approach

Jake is dedicated towards offering effective care centred upon evidence based best practice and an authentic human connection. He is the first to discuss with his clients that lasting change is not about getting to a single “right way” to respond to life’s challenges, but to collaboratively build an individually tailored one.

Working primarily from a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) standpoint, Jake also works with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Positive Psychology. His work is framed not only towards the reduction of symptoms and distress, but also in assisting his clients in living their lives with their own values and passions at the centre.
