“If there is meaning in life at all, then there must be meaning in suffering.”
― Viktor Frankl

Many people feel overwhelmed by mental illness, trauma, loneliness, disappointment, loss, and
grief. I believe that through a combination of therapeutic techniques and genuine support hope
can be found to endure any situation.

Everyone has different reasons for coming to therapy, so my goal is to help you find what works
best for you. Whether you need someone to vent to or need a specific intervention my job is to
do whatever is within my ability and training to help relieve your stress and help you grow as a
person. I hope that no matter your situation I can help you to find peace of mind and to work
alongside you as you discover how to make beneficial changes in your circumstances or mindset.

By searching for a counselor, you’re taking a step towards change and recovery. With my clients,
I provide a supportive environment to work through the current struggles you are facing.
Whether you are deeply suffering or purely in need of making some adjustments I can provide a
setting that will help promote mental clarity.

Meet Jason

No two people seek counseling for the exact same reason; your relationships, your story, and your perspectives impact the challenges in your life just as they shape its wonderful aspects.  As your counselor, it’s important to me to establish a safe and non-judgmental environment where you can be unburdened and open to wellness.  Whether you are seeking clarity, tranquility, agency, or affirmation, I’m honored to help guide your healing and growing work.  

What can you expect from me as your counselor?  When we talk, I will follow your lead, asking questions and making observations with the goal of challenging or enlightening your reoccurring or unacknowledged thoughts.  My counseling style has been shaped greatly by my decades as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, and at various moments I have felt the burden of anxiety, self-doubt, marginalization, and oppression in my life.  Helping others address corrosive feelings and restore balance and wellness as individuals, life partners, and essential members of a greater community is central to fulfillment in my professional practice.  Let us do this work together so you can expand your understanding of yourself. Let us do this work together so you can expand your compassion for yourself. Let us do this work together so you can wholly inhabit yourself.

Creve Coeur Community Counseling is staffed by graduate counseling interns in the final semesters of their graduate counseling programs at local universities. They are under the supervision of licensed professionals. Our interns work closely with their supervisors and other staff to give clients the best care possible.

Our interns offer both virtual and in-person counseling sessions.
