We can't change our pasts, but we can change our beliefs and feelings about what our past meant. With over 15 years of professional experience, Jason understands what it is like to be deeply saddened, confused – or even paralyzed – by terrible loss or life experiences. Using his unique approach of “Explore, Process, Heal, Challenge, Reframe,” Jason works closely with his clients to help them develop awareness of new possibilities to redefine their history, move out of deep pain, depression, or anxiety, and create a new, healthier, happier, peaceful life. Jason’s therapeutic approach employs a variety of effective evidence-based modalities specifically tailored to best address each patient’s specific and current needs. Therapy may also incorporate music, videos, quotes, or meditation.
In his free time, Jason enjoys listening to his beloved vinyl collection, sorting through his vintage sports cards, watching artistic cinema, palling around with his teenage daughter, feeding birds at the beach, or escaping for solo trips to Joshua Tree.
