What Our Clients Are Saying

Jared has been a great help to me over the past semester. In the past, I found myself getting stuck in the same patterns of negative thinking that would lead to depression. In High School, I had people that I leaned on to help me through, but college proved to be even more challenging. Through counseling, I have been able to recognize these patterns and begin to cut them off at the beginning rather than let them build up. I still struggle with my thoughts, but I no longer spiral. It’s hard work, but I’ve been able to enjoy college so much more with these new insights and skills.

Being a teenager in today’s culture is rough! Before coming to see Jared, my anxiety was out of control. I struggled going to school and I began to see every confrontation as negative. This affected my relationship with my parents, coaches, teachers and friends. Jared helped me gain new insight into dealing with confrontation. He is such an encouragement to me, but also holds me accountable by “confronting” some of the ways I still struggle with anxiety. Every session is a great reminder to see how far I’ve come.
