Jerry Mize, Resident
I am a firm believer in reflection and growth. So much so that I left an established career path to pursue my passion for therapy. I would be honored to work with you to identify, understand, and potentially meet your goals and needs. If you are not sure what those are, that is also okay! We can figure out your goals along the way. I believe that a collaborative relationship between a client and therapist is essential in navigating goals, and facilitating personal growth. While my first goal is to be supportive and listen, I will also provide the accountability and encouragement for you to construct your best life.
I welcome clients with a variety of needs regardless of the reason you have sought counseling. Know that I am here to listen and work with you and am committed to helping you evaluate your needs; and be a support as you attempt to wrestle with life's challenges. I like to tailor treatments to my clients. I do this by incorporating techniques and approaches that best fit you as a person in our collaborative space.
Jerry welcomes individual sessions with teens and adults, both in-person and telehealth, who would like to discuss anxiety, depression, relationship issues, sex, sexuality and identity, and general life stressors.
Jerry prefers to approach each case with what will fit best for the client and their goals. By default, he begins with a developmental, narrative approach but also incorporates, trauma-informed, CBT, solution focused, and other modalities where appropriate.
