Our Therapists

Jeff Stahl

By picking up the phone and contacting a therapist, you’ve taken the hardest step: a coming to an awareness that you would like to affect change in your life. I believe in an interactive, dynamic approach where together we explore the history of an issue, it’s effects and most importantly, institute a positive plan for change.

This positive perspective is grounded in my training in Transpersonal Psychology that considers the spiritual or transcendent nature inherent in people. I also have an extensive background in mind/body work especially valuable in the treatment of trauma and anxiety.

My strengths lie in the ability to create a therapeutic relationship, which holds clarity, compassion and respect as pillars in constructing a space for personal growth. I believe the process of change does not have to be painful or difficult but can be an adventure in self discovery and knowledge.

I believe life is a Journey; sometimes wildly exciting, others extraordinarily painful, and most often satisfyingly “hum drum”. Additionally, I have found that the perhaps un-chosen and even undesired “closing of one door” often becomes the impetus, which propels us toward growth. Therapy is a tool we can use throughout the different phases of our journeys to enrich our lives. Whether short term or long, therapy provides an avenue to explore today’s challenges, yesterday’s ways of doing things – which may now undermine our progress – and tomorrow’s goals, as a springboard to growth. I have found this through my own experiences and as I have witnessed the process of change in others. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), I work with adults, either individually or as couples. I use an interactive approach, grounded in Gestalt Therapy with a focus on the mind/body connection. I specialize in grief and loss and navigating life’s major transitions, in recovery from past trauma, and gay/lesbian issues.
