Get to know Jack
Jack serves out of our Allen office as the location’s lead child and adolescent therapist. Jack holds a passion for helping children, teens, and their families become the best versions of themselves possible while offering support for whatever struggles they might face. It is no secret that life can often feel challenging and overwhelming; yet far too often the struggles of children and teenagers are overlooked or brushed aside. Regardless of how old you are, your problems deserve to be recognized—and you don’t have to struggle through them alone.
We all have unmet needs in our lives. Whether we are striving for connection with others, a desire to prove ourselves capable of greatness, or the courage to face life’s hardships, we all have aspects of our lives that cause us to struggle or feel inferior. In his practice, Jack uses Adlerian Therapy techniques to establish an environment of unconditional trust and support so that he and his clients can identify their unmet needs and find more positive methods of addressing them in everyday life. Finally, Jack is a firm believer that the best results are achieved when parents and caregivers are involved in the process, working as equal partners to help the child meet their goals and become the healthiest version of themselves.
Jack is a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in the state of Texas, having earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Kennesaw State University and a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Arkansas. He began his career as a clinical intern with Methodist Family Health, assisting children, teens, and families with navigating the stresses of anxiety, depression, ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Jack is thrilled to be a part of the Lifeologie team and to extend his services to families in need.
When not at the clinic, Jack is an unapologetic nerd at heart, possessing a deep love for superheroes, creative writing, and playing tabletop games with his closest friends. By far his most exciting story is of the time that he and his family were chased by a bear in the mountains of Colorado while he was in elementary school. It is his hope that there are no hard feelings, though the bear has made no comment on the matter thus far. For now, Jack has opted to call the matter a draw and declined all requests for a rematch thus far.
