The interest in therapy came from the benefit that Jeremy experienced early on in his life. The areas in which Jeremy has a special interest include working with lower socio-economic status, single-parent families and injured athletes. Jeremy’s focus and beliefs lie in the fact that he believes God has given us all a gift, and he believes his spiritual calling lies in the fact that his experiences shaped him in a way that would allow him to grow and to help others through their life difficulties.

A SEASONED COUNSELOR
Jeremy started lay counseling as a part of a Big Brother Program in Orange County with a company called (MHA) Mental Health Association of Orange County. Jeremy stayed in this program for two years counseling a young man and spending countless hours with him doing homework, touring different college campuses and exploring different areas of future interest for this young man. Since then he has worked for Turning Point Counseling for Families at two different elementary schools in the Santa Ana School District where he carried a caseload of 20+ children ranging from 1st-8th grade. He also worked at Brea Family Resource Center where he worked with clients from various age groups, religious/cultural backgrounds and beliefs. Jeremy is currently a Program Coordinator/Therapist at high-end residential treatment facility located in Laguna Beach for recovering addicts.
COMMITTED TO MINISTRY
Jeremy and his girlfriend are committed members to their church. They attend young adult services together and Jeremy also attends a men’s bible study weekly while his girlfriend attends women’s bible study. Jeremy is also looking into getting involved with a Sunday men’s basketball league at his church.
COMMITTED TO FAMILY
Jeremy and his girlfriend Tiffany have been together for five years. In the summer of 2013 Jeremy was baptized, it was then he and Tiffany made a commitment to remain abstinent until marriage. This was a commitment not only to them but to God as well, in knowing that what he planned for their lives was far greater than anything they could imagine. Jeremy and his girlfriend are both near completion of their graduate program together and are planning for their engagement as their schooling is coming to a close in 2017. Family has always been one of the most important elements in Jeremy’s life and he credits God, his family and his girlfriend for being where he is today and for all the blessings he has received.
