Ryan Jacobs, LMSW

Psychotherapist

Ryan believes in a collaborative therapy experience to assist clients on their journey of self-discovery. As the cornerstone of his approach, he believes that unconditional support through the therapeutic relationship provides a strong foundation for this journey. And he feels this support is often missing from our lives.

The quality of our lives is governed by the health of your relationships and Ryan’s aim is to improve these interactions and understand the motivations behind your behaviors. Therapeutic work can lead to a more balanced and positive relationship with yourself and others. Ryan hopes to accompany clients on this path toward discovery and ultimately a happier and fulfilling life.

Utilizing evidence-based treatments from various modalities, Ryan incorporates various modalities including CBT, psychodynamic, AEDP and motivational interviewing. His experience is with individual, couples and group therapy addressing a variety of interpersonal issues and mental health concerns.
