“Your journey begins with a single step. Each day, take one small step forward and soon you’ll find yourself miles away from where you started.” – Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching (6th century BCE)

Counseling Style

Jeffrey’s counseling style is distinct. He blends a solution-focused, evidence-based practice with motivational interviewing. His unique approach is characterized by active listening and a deep respect for self-knowledge. He’s not just a guide through a client’s
toughest times but a partner who celebrates achievements to fuel success.


As an undergraduate, Jeffrey worked in a Community-based Acute treatment facility for adolescents between 12 and 17 who lived there for 14 days to six months. As an MSW received from Westfield State University, Jeffrey provided therapy for multiple years in mobile and hospital-based crisis units. The clientele with major mental illnesses ranges in age from 7 to 100. Jeffrey expanded his experience with a geriatric population in a Skilled Nursing Facility for one year.
