Each client is the expert of their life but may feel as if things have gotten out of control. After learning of what factors may play a role in the reason for seeking out therapy, we will develop goals to improve not only how you feel but how you think and act. Through the process we will seek to build your own skills to increase your expertise in problem solving and overcome potential problems you may face in the future.
Outside of the office, Jackson enjoys spending time with his family in various activities and volunteering at ministry related events. He enjoys watching and playing sports, reading, as well as the opportunity to teach and learn.
