Who Can Jacob Help?

Jacob uses a direct and non-judgmental approach to helping clients find the answers they need to overcome their present struggles. He believes that the part of our past that happens outside of our control plays a large role in our development, and that no matter the past, our present is still our choice.

Adolescents

Most of Jacob's experience has been with adolescents in the grade-school setting. His main focus was socio-emotional competency, but his work with youths has afforded him competency helping adolescent clients who are struggling with anger, anxiety, grief and loss, and depression.

Adults

Jacob has also been able to adapt the skills he gained with adolescents and skillfully apply them to his adult clients. He works with adults who experience anxiety, depression, grief, loss, anger, and problematic pornography use to help them achieve balance and harmony.

Couples & Families

Jacob is comfortable working with couples and families to help them resolve conflicts, improve communication, deepen bonds and respect boundaries. He can help you learn how to achieve  balance and harmony in your relationships.

Jacob's Therapeutic Approaches

Jacob takes an integrative approach to therapy, using reality therapy as a lense for therapeutic planning. In his experience, there is not a single box that a client can or should fit into, so you may see him use Gestalt exercises to externalize the troublesome emotion and de-pathologize your struggle. He may lead you in mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural exercise to help you understand and accept the distressing emotions that distort your thoughts and give you homework to practice catching those thoughts before they turn to actions. Jacob also has training in accelerated resolution therapy (ART) which is an effective approach in treating trauma, anxiety and depression. Overall, Jacob believes that you are unique, and your therapy should be equally unique. That said, he believes the main vein of commonality between all clients is that they are all worthy and capable of peace and community with self and others.

He is uniquely open to learning about the belief systems of his clients to gain a deeper understanding of their circle of support and worldview.
