Jeff received his masters degree from Rhode Island College and then completed his post-masters clinical training at Northern Rhode Island CBT where he focused on the treatment of Anxiety Disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and Hoarding Disorder.
Jeff’s approach to therapy is influenced by the training he received at NRICBT where he utilized Exposure and Response Prevention for OCD as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Jeff tries not to be dogmatic about modalities or ways of working though. He believes that the foundation for productive therapeutic work is a therapist/client relationship based on kindness, curiosity, and respect. (A healthy sense of humor doesn’t hurt either.) Above all, Jeff strives to provide therapy that is tailored to the needs of the client and that is humane and practical.
Jeff works with adults and older teenagers who are living with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Hoarding Disorder, and all manners of anxiety and stress. Before becoming a therapist Jeff worked professionally in the arts for over a decade and so has a particular interest in working with artists, writers, and performers of all kinds.
