Volunteering as a crisis intervention specialist during college fueled a passion in Jared for counseling adolescents and young adults through suicidal ideation and other crises.

Jared earned his undergraduate degree in brain and behavioral sciences at Purdue University and went on to obtain a master’s in mental health counseling from the University of Indianapolis. Jared worked with college students at a university student counseling center until he joined our team.

He combines the use of cognitive and behavioral strategies and a deep faith in God’s healing power to help empower young people who struggle with anxiety, mood disorders, suicidal ideations and addictions. Jared is trained in EMDR, and he also enjoys opportunities to share God’s healing by serving the community and educating others about mental health.
