Jeff Weiss, MA, LPC QMHP
Jeff is a recent graduate of Lewis
University, earning a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. He
completed his internship at Trinity Services, and is excited to be a part of
the AMT Counseling team.
Jeff has worked with child and adolescent clients who have depression, anxiety, social skill deficits, impulse control problems, and more. He primarily works with theories such as CBT and ACT, but has also used DBT, Narrative therapy, and others. He is willing to use whatever theories, style and approach is necessary for the client sitting in front of him, and prides himself on being able to relate to younger people and the issues they are currently experiencing in today’s world.
Jeff believes that it is important for a client, especially a child or adolescent, to have their own private safe space in which to talk about their experiences, thoughts and feelings without judgment. He takes great pride in building a rapport with his clientele and creating a safe space for his clients, as once these tasks are accomplished, the work of healing and making positive changes in the client’s life can then begin.
