Jeff Simms Licensed Professional CounselorMy Approach

Change can be incredibly challenging. I believe in your ability to learn new skills to make changes easier. I provide a safe and non-judgmental place to talk openly about your emotions, your response to change, and how to get better at responding to difficult situations. Counseling is a journey and I am happy to help you explore the different paths you could take to achieve your goals. Since 2009, I have worked with young adults and adults through challenging life issues and transitions. I provide counseling to individuals with anxiety, depression, stress, and PTSD. Participating in counseling shows great strength and a willingness to grow. Throughout counseling, you will learn how to get better at dealing with problems that are interfering with your ability to live your best life. Contact me today to take the first step in making the important changes to living your best life.

My Story

More Than Ok Story

Despite challenges and difficult situations, I believe you are meant to be more than ok. Even when life throws an obstacle in front of your path, you deserve more than ok. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like you can go beyond ok, but I believe you can. I believe you have everything inside of you right now to be more than ok. The challenge you face may not be easy and could take some time to change, but I will be part of your journey helping you to learn and identify what it means to be, more than ok.
