B'well Counseling Services
Therapist, LCPC: LC11952, Co-Owner and Operator
Accepting New Clients
Jake’s work is centered around helping individuals and couples move from just barely getting by to thriving. He focuses on the patterns, experiences, and challenges that have shaped each of us as individuals in pursuit of finding a different path forward. This process can often involve more pain and discomfort, but shouldn't cause suffering. Jake’s approach can best be described as feminist-existential. This means he is paying attention to the larger questions associated with living from a critical and liberation based perspective. In the course of work with Jake, it’s not uncommon for people to laugh, cry, get angry, be sad, and feel the urge to tear down the problematic systems around them.
Jake works with adolescents and adults for individual therapy around identity development, LGBTQIA issues, sexual health or identity concerns, trauma, romantic and family relationships, meaning in life issues, and the process of “unlearning” toxic ideologies (e.g., religion, politics, etc).
Jake works with couples specifically looking to ramp up their intimate connections. This includes emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy that may have been lost (or never quite existed) over the course of the relationship.
