BIO

Jeff has worked across the country from Florida to Alaska, with those who suffer from PTSD, Developmental Trauma, C-PTSD, “Little ‘t’” trauma, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, relationships issues, men’s issues, and other general mental health struggles. After receiving specialized education, training, and experience and knowing that healing is possible in these areas, he knew he wanted to return to Alaska to be able to work with Alaskans suffering with these issues. There is something special about the resilient spirit of Alaskans and their ability to survive and thrive.
