My name is Jack Venbrux. I counsel individuals who are 18 years old or older with a wide variety of issues. Some of those issues include: anxiety, depression, grief, relationship struggles, life changes, traumatic experiences, PTSD, and working through hurts from the past. I’ve helped many people feel better, come to understand themselves more completely, grow kinder to themselves and others, and grow stronger inside.
NOTE: During Covid concerns I am supporting clients using telehealth.
I’ve counseled with students, engineers, CEOs, truck-drivers, grandmothers in retirement, adult adoptees, veterans, fire-fighters, teachers, and a host of other precious people, possibly like you, who want some assistance living a more satisfying life. I help people learn to live with more energy and vitality. I help people deal with life stressors. I enjoy seeing my clients begin to understand how their family of origin and life experiences have shaped them, so they can more clearly chart their own unique life course.
After over 10 years of training and experience in the Seattle area I recently moved out of the big city to be closer to my roots. When we work together, I can draw from a wide variety of approaches that have their roots in some of the latest research about how the brain changes. Some of the therapies I use include: Attachment Focused EMDR, Relational Psychotherapy, Complex Integration of Multiple Brain Systems (CIMBS), Lifespan Integration Therapy (LI), Somatic Transformation (ST), and mindful awareness. I've recently been influenced by the work of Dr. Richard Schwartz and his Internal Family Systems approach.
I have a waiting list. --- You’ve already started moving toward healing by searching for a counselor. I would like to welcome you to consider contacting me. I offer a free 30 minute get-together (by video or phone), no obligation, meeting time to answer questions, and to see if we think it might make sense for us to work together. Call or email me (via contact page) if you are interested--but please NOTE: At present my practice is full and I am not accepting new clients.
