Hi! My name is Jake. I'm an experienced therapist with experience treating anxiety, ADHD, depression, life change, and sexuality issues.

About My Clients

I have experience working with individual across many gender, racial, and sexual identities. I have particular experience working with men of all sexual orientations, as well as members of the LGBTQ+ community. My clients are curious to learn more about themselves and also open to practical, concrete tools to manage symptoms and improve quality of life.

My Background and Approach

I have been fortunate to receive high-quality training as a graduate of the UIC/Jane Addams College of Social Work. During my training, I worked at Howard Brown Health where I focused on work with the LGBTQ+ community as well as trauma and recovery. Following work in community mental health working with diverse populations in Skokie, Illinois, I spent several years at Catalyst Clinical Group in Chicago where I focused on my work with men/transmasculine individuals and members of the LGBTQ+ community. I primarily engage in approaches such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and ACT. These are contemporary, evidence-based approaches which research suggests are highly helpful in managing symptoms of burnout, anxiety, depression, and other mental health symptoms. Additionally, I am experienced in walking beside my clients as they make greater discoveries about themselves, their identities, and their direction in life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that my clients are the ultimate experts in their own lives and that they contain within them the ability to manage the challenges that come to them throughout their life. The role of the therapist is to walk alongside their clients and assist them as they figure out how to move forward in their lives. I keep an awareness of the shortcomings of mental health therapy, particularly the ways that it has been misused against the LGBTQ+ community, women, and others. It is my responsibility to provide competent, evidence-based mental healthcare to support my clients in living lives aligned with *their* values, not my own.
