About Jed's Practice:

Positive change.  Feeling better.  Increasing happiness.  Realizing higher levels of well-being.  Building and maintaining fulfilling relationships.  These are the goals.  My ideal clients wish to enter a collaborative relationship in which we discover and explore those intrinsic and extrinsic strengths and characteristics that can be used to create momentum towards lasting, positive growth.  I welcome individuals, couples, families, children and adolescents looking to improve the quality of their lives and realize a greater sense of overall well-being.  My practice is geared toward counseling clients facing a wide range of life's challenges while raising clients' baseline of happiness.

I employ an integrative approach to counseling that involves a systemic, contextual view of my clients' lives.  Drawing from Positive Psychology, Narrative Family Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and other scientifically-based approaches, I use a client-centered approach that is appropriately tailored and fine-tuned to meet client needs.

I worked for 3 years as a Chemical Dependency Counselor in both an inpatient and outpatient setting, with both adults and adolescents.  While I acknowledge the importance and effectiveness of 12-step recovery programs, I am also comfortable working with those who seek alternative methods of sustaining sobriety and well-being.
