Jeffrey wears many hats. One is a firefighter’s helmet.

Psychotherapist, Fire Department Chaplain, Trauma Specialist, Author, Professional Speaker and Firefighter

Jeffrey serves those who serve others. His work supports first responders and their families, resets marriages, and has led him to create a powerful method to heal nightmares. “The Way Out” is a foolproof approach to understanding and erasing the effects of flashbacks.

Jeffrey supports all people from any walk of life.  “I appreciate the gift my first responder community has given me.  I am able to share these gifts and insights with people who may not walk this intense path.  I have confidence nothing will shock me, surprise me, or cause me in any way not to support the people I work with.”  I am clear, I support you in the work you do to become whole.  I assist you in doing your work.  I will celebrate your accomplishments, I will laugh with you, challenge you, make you think, but most of all, let you see why you are worth every moment of my time.  

A note from Jeffrey:

“You can maintain the passion you had when you first joined the service.  As first responders, we have this bittersweet appreciation for slow days. We like when nothing bad happens. It’s the busy days with bells ringing in our ears, wiping soot and salt from our faces, that we question the nobility of our cause.

The counselling and resources I provide, the knowledge I share, can help you keep an even keel through the storms. Maintaining your resilience is an ongoing process – recognizing this is the first step.”

Jeffrey received his Ph.D. from Luther Seminary in diversified counselling.  He is currently working on a second Ph.D. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology.  He provides Employee Assistance Counselling, on-site support for trauma debriefings, and is an instructor of the “Way Out” Technique. He also entertains as Dr. Jeff in Mastering the Circus of Your Mind, a hypnosis comedy stage show.
