“Jeffry, I really liked that you made the workshop more personal by asking each of us about our stressors.  Your feedback and suggestions related to my stress challenges was very helpful.  Walking through each stress management skill was excellent, there is nothing like having practice with adjustments from the instructor immediately.  Your handout has great info, and will be helpful when I practice the skills at home and work, well done!  This is the last stress management program I will ever need.”


“I really appreciated the stress assessment form which you had has us fill out at the start of the workshop.  It taught me to see how many areas of my life are significantly stressful, and what patterns exist in how my stress shows itself.  Also, your well-organized overview of the varieties of types of stress management strategies was great.  It was very helpful to experience these different strategies during the training.”


“This is a topic that is rather new and comes as we know more and more about brain research. I found the demonstration particularly interesting and helpful in understanding the explanations of what Brainspotting is all about. Jeffry’s personable approach made it easy to see how he uses this therapy tool.  He was well prepared, and very engaging…an excellent presentation!”

Donna O., MA, LICSWPsychotherapist

“I found this training to be incredibly informative and inspiring.  Staff who attended have not stopped talking about how helpful they found it for themselves and potentially for their clients.  Now, several of us want to be trained in Brainspotting!  Jeffry is clearly passionate, knowledgeable and skilled, I so grateful she had the chance to learn from him!”

Erica Johnson, MA, LPCCEducation Training Director and Therapist

“Jeffry exuded calm, flexibility, and humor while staying on task and apparently effortlessly conveying extensive and complex material.  He has clearly done his personal work to be a relaxed, accessible, and competent presenter. This workshop was very well attended and quite interactive.  It had a good balance of lecture, and case examples, there were experiential exercises for all attendees. I personally encountered feelings of comfort, relief, and relaxation.  I could sense Jeffry’s openness and heart connection with the volunteer with whom he did a demonstration.  I felt extraordinarily relaxed and peaceful after the workshop. Jeffry’s talk left me full of new information and possibilities, intrigued and wanting to learn more about it—just how I want to feel after a good workshop.”

“I appreciated Jeffry’s extensive knowledge on the subject, as well as his passion in talking about best practices when working with men. I feel I learned some valuable concepts and have a better understanding as a woman working predominantly with men in my line of work.”

“I found the workshop very beneficial for considering the specifics of working with male clients from neuroscience to moving beyond two emotions to a symphony of emotions. I especially found the neuroscience of men extremely illuminating in understanding male clients better. There was so much richness and depth in the content that I’m grateful for the handouts to refer to as needed.”

Jessica Metzger, MA, LMFT, ATR-BCPsychotherapist

“There is no way to describe how important the work is that Jeffry is doing around working with men. We need to have a national conversation about the lost-ness of our male people in this current socio-political context.  This presentation was excellent, and I leave it feeling hopeful and engaged!”

Julie Ann Moylan, MA, LPC, LADCPsychotherapist

“With such potency and ease, Jeffry connects, and engages with his audience.  He draws participants in with metaphors, stories, humor, and great case examples.  Jeffry’s enthusiasm for working with men is contagious!  As a women psychotherapist, I am glad to know that I can count on him as a resource regarding men with whom I work.  Jeffry’s presentations and content are organized, credible, and dynamic, I look forward to the next one.”

Lisa Taylor, MSW, LICSWExpert Neurofeedback Practitioner and Psychotherapist

“Jeffry is a very effective communicator, and engages well with his audience.  His years of experience provide him with a depth of understanding and real compassion for those he is talking about.  Jeffry not only knows the topics he addresses regarding men, but also cares about the topics – a wonderful fusion of understanding and engagement.”
