Professional statement

Jake is a psychotherapist who works with adults 18 and older. Many of Jake’s clients come in to address anxiety, depression, life transitions, and relationship difficulties. He has worked in many settings, including schools and community-based wraparound programs. Trained as a social worker, he strives to meet clients/patients where they're at in a compassionate and attuned way. He is passionate about helping people reduce suffering and increase meaning in their lives.

His approach is collaborative and grounded in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), an evidence-based treatment incorporating mindfulness and perspective-taking. As the name suggests, ACT is about accepting what is outside of personal control and committing to valued action that improves your life. Through exploration and collaboration Jake helps people become aware of patterns and habits that may no longer be serving them well, and which get in the way of realizing their goals. Together, Jake can help you develop new, more effective strategies that move you towards meaningful living. In session, Jake will offer exercises to practice connecting to the present moment, and increase psychological flexibility.

Jake's style is thoughtful, goal-oriented, and non-judgmental. When clients first start therapy, Jake will work to understand what is most important to the client to work on in therapy, and what they've tried so far. Jake is a member of multiple peer supervision groups and attends frequent trainings to deepen his knowledge and skill base. He aims to practice anti-racism and to be an ally of the LGBTQIA community. Jake is a graduate of Simmons University (M.S.W. 2007). He is a spouse, father, brother, son, uncle, and neighbor who loves music, movies, hiking and bicycling. He has two cats: Boots and Oliver.


Message to clients

Life’s challenges are inevitable.

I aim to help each client navigate these difficulties through a shift in their relationship with unpleasant thoughts and feelings, and by engaging in valued action steps that lead clients closer to a life of meaning and purpose. As the saying goes, "You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf."

As a therapist, I bring kindness, curiosity, and humor. Clients who have benefited most from working with me are inquisitive, and willing to try new therapeutic approaches.

My hope is that after doing a piece of work together in therapy, you will experience more clarity, ease, openness and engagement with life.
