My counseling approach mainly focuses on using cognitive behavior therapy, which is consistent with the teachings of the Bible. It focuses on replacing negative thoughts and behaviors with truth. I have also been trained in using Eco Systemic Family Treatment Model which is a type of family therapy. I am firmly committed to helping people find God's will for their lives and understanding His purposes for them. I hope to have the opportunity to work with you and share a part of your voyage with you.

Jeff has been very attentive and compassionate in our phone calls. He always has useful information to offer, practical exercises to do, and has already helped me to identify my negative thought patterns, and core beliefs. With the use of some of the work sheets I’ve been able to identify when the negative thoughts sneak up on me during the day and I’m able to than not fall prey to my negative thinking. It has helped me tremendously.
Mr. Simms is a great counselor offering biblical wisdom and is patient and kind. I've only been working with him for a matter of weeks, but in that short time he's introduced some methods and opened up some doors that have offered healing to me. I would definitely recommend his services to my friends and colleagues. Great Godly wisdom!
Jeff is a fantastic counsellor who cares deeply about his clients. He works diligently in identifying the underlying cause of the issue and works on practical strategies and methods to help go from there. I highly recommend Jeff as a counsellor.
