Jeff Nettle, LPC
Philosophy: Effective counseling occurs when people develop the insight to make meaningful changes to their emotional, spiritual, and social functioning. The client/counselor relationship starts by building of trust and respect, which sets the foundation to reach mutually agreed upon treatment goals.
Style: My approach combines elements of Humanistic Counseling and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which include empowerment, challenging maladaptive thoughts, and focusing on the here and now. Empathy and constructive feedback are offered in support of the client's journey to elevate their health and well-being.
Specialties: I serve children, teens, young adults, couples, and families using several modalities including Strength-Based Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person Center Therapy
Experience: I have worked at community mental health and substance use agencies and colleges providing counseling and guidance for individuals, families, and groups working to overcome mood, anxiety, trauma, addiction, and adjustment disorders.
