In addition to providing traditional therapy, Jason provides performance coaching for athletes in various levels of competition. Blending his competitive golfing history with his passion for psychology, Jason has helped athletes achieve success at both the amateur and professional levels. He has worked with athletes competing in golf, tennis, baseball, basketball, hockey, diving, cross country, equestrian, lacrosse, and football. Jason is skilled at helping athletes stay positive, develop a deeper level of focus, and build the mental skills necessary to excel at their chosen sport.
Since receiving my degree from Northwestern University’s The Family Institute in 1999, I have spent a great deal of time helping people make changes in their lives. With adolescents, I have learned that to engage them in therapy, I had to tailor my approach to the adolescent’s world. Today, I use a lot of sports, music, technology, and social media, as a way to help adolescents better navigate the world in which they live.
In addition, as my private practice has developed, I have focused on the issues that many individuals and couples face in their relationships. For every couple I’ve worked with, at least one of the partners has expressed that their needs are not being met and that they feel uncertain about the direction of their relationship. I help couples identify the patterns that have gotten them “stuck” and offer strategies to enhance the relationship going forward.
My approach to working with individuals, couples and families is fairly direct. I believe that when clients come to therapy they want answers as to why they are in the state they are in. I help them identify the underlying issues that cause stress in their lives and relationships and help them develop skills to remedy their problems.
