Professional Interests

Jacob is passionate about holistic approaches to wellbeing and cultural humility in therapy. His clinical and research interests include developing support systems for people in marginalized populations, sport psychology processes, and special considerations for first-generation college students.

Approach to Therapy

Jacob enjoys both group and individual therapy. His approach is integrative, utilizing relational-cultural, humanistic, and systems-based approaches. Jacob aims to help clients create meaningful connections and to understand the world around them in new and helpful ways.

Approach to Supervision

Jacob emphasizes the role of the supervisory relationship in providing a supportive, yet challenging training experience - one that draws on more holistic views of growth and development. Jacob hopes trainees grow in their understanding of self, their values, and their hopes as a professional.

Approach to Wellness

Jacob maintains wellness by spending time at home with his family and playing with his frisbee-catching dog, Indy. He enjoys time with the other interns and friends around Gainesville, playing sports, kayaking, and hammocking.
