Acuity Counseling Therapist Bio

 

Jeff Watson, EdD, MS, LMHC

Individual Therapist

 

Today’s fast-paced working environment and constant contact with technology can be all consuming, leaving little time for individual self and the things that really matter in your life. Jeff provides dynamic therapy, guiding clients with constructive coping tools to increase emotional health, with the goal to help you improve your quality of life.  

Working with Individuals
Do you find yourself stressed, depressed or both? Are the demands on your time and energy too many? Maybe the relationships in your life are suffering because you just don’t feel like yourself? Sometimes the balancing act of work, family and friends becomes too much. This is especially true for those in high stress situations.  Jeff’s work with individuals aims to help you manage these stresses and get back to living the life you envision for yourself.

Helping Through Trauma
Every person is different. And everyone’s view of their world is shaped by the experiences they have had. This is particularly true of trauma, which impacts how we see ourselves, our relationships and every aspect of our world. Jeff’s approach is person-centered, and your individual journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance, and the opportunity for positive growth and healing. For those struggling with more severe traumatic experiences, Jeff employs the use of EMDR.

How I Can Help
Jeff utilizes a blended person-centered and strengths based approach to your therapy. He believes we all have the power to discover solutions to our problems, and to be proactive in navigating those solutions. Jeff will support you in making positive changes that improve your overall well-being and move you towards living the life you want.
