Jeffrey York, LMFT

Who I am as a Therapist

My name is Jeffrey and I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist. As a systemic therapist, I utilize experiential, alternative and mindful therapies. I pair a frank and friendly approach, creating opportunity for growth, transformation, and healing in my clients’ lives. My passion for therapy is rooted in spirituality. This, in turn, create a calm and peaceful therapeutic environment that is welcoming to all. I value contemplating both the past and present with my clients in order to facilitate new perspectives and change. I believe that times of crisis, although difficult, provide a fertile ground for healing and personal growth. In those challenging times, I value compassion, sensitivity and collaboration.

I like to collaborate with motivated clients who are actively seeking to change their lives. I will help you discover your own solutions to your problems and concerns and to do so in an environment that is welcoming, empathetic and non-judgmental. This happens through my carefully attending to your thoughts and feelings.

I include a blend of conventional and alternative approaches, drawing upon a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what would be most helpful for you. With sensitivity and compassion, I empower you to build upon your strengths as well as to identify and achieve your life goals.

My overall goal in therapy is to provide an accepting and understanding climate that helps facilitate your growth and healing. As you teach me about yourself, we will consider your emotional, behavioral and spiritual life as well as the environment that surrounds you daily. I will help you to look at your past, present, and future to identify problems and solutions. I truly love the process of collaborating together to help you live a more meaningful, satisfying and authentic life.
