Psychotherapy Training and Accreditation
Jared holds a Masters in Social Work from Smith College, Massachusetts in the USA, a program known for its psychodynamic approach steeped in social justice and liberation theory. He held a counselling fellowship for over two years at the Insight Meditation Society, where he worked alongside some of the world’s leading mindfulness teachers.
Jared holds a Certified Social Worker Licence (LCSW) to practice therapy in the US, and he is accredited to practice in Ireland with the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP).
Counselling & Psychotherapeutic Approach
Jared believes that the stories we tell ourselves inherited by family, work, community and society are often not vast enough to encompass the whole of our being. Therapy is a space to reclaim wholeness, heal wounding that we’ve often hidden from ourselves, and recognize the goodness within ourselves and others that has gotten obstructed by our suffering.
Jared is a psychodynamically-trained integrative clinician whose approach is informed by Insight Meditation, mindfulness, relational theory, object relations, narrative therapy, liberation theory, CBT, and DBT. Each of these modalities offer tools to help the client recognize what’s most important to them, what causes them the most suffering, and figure out how to best make life decisions from that knowing.
His approach is always informed by the needs of each client. Jared believes that it is not his job to tell you who you are or what you should do; rather, he is a collaborative support to help you better understand yourself and make the changes you’ve been wanting to make in your life.
