Jason has been at Summit since 2018 and works with men, women, couples, families, and teens to find hope, healing, and growth. He is trained to work with couples from pre-marriage through serious relationship and family conflict. Jason also enjoys helping men, women, and teens develop skills to deal with difficult and overwhelming emotions, tolerate crises in life, and improve relationships.
Jason believes counseling is a collaborative process where you work together to navigate depression, anxiety, life transitions, grief and loss, and relationship needs. He has a unique perspective from the 20+ years in both for-profit and non-profit management roles prior to becoming a counselor. These roles help Jason meet clients where they are and develop treatment plans that are concise and personal. He thrives on researching and exploring the best way to help clients and has special training and certifications to work with many needs. These trainings include Dialectic-Behavior Therapy (DBT), Level 2 training in Gottman Couples Therapy, and a certification in Gottman Affair and Recovery Training. Jason is also pursuing a certification in Discernment Counseling.
Prior to coming to Summit, Jason received a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Richmont Graduate University and a Master of Science in Management of Technology from Georgia Institute of Technology. He has worked in corporate America, as a consultant at a start-up, and as a care pastor at a local church.
