Professional statement

Jeff Pharion is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) practicing in the Northwest end of Columbus at Pharion Counseling. He works with adolescents through adults (13-99+).

Many of Pharion Counseling’s clients come in when the world is beating them down, and they have no idea how to fight back. Jeff is particularly passionate about serving men with anger concerns and couples who have great difficulties communicating.

Jeff has a unique background in coaching and teaching, with 26 years of coaching and 23 of teaching. This experience allows him to be very comfortable with his clients and deliver a “direct approach” to help them come to solutions to their problems as well as coping strategies.

In session, Jeff focuses on the immediate needs of his clients, and together they develop the best treatment strategy to get to the answers his clients are searching. This approach cuts out any extraneous therapy or unneeded sessions.
