Jacob is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.


He graduated in 2013 from Southern Methodist University with his Masters of Science in Counseling, with a focus in marriage and family therapy. He completed his undergraduate degree at Dallas Baptist University, with a bachelor’s in psychology and a minor in art. During his clinical training, he worked at Hope’s Door in Collin County, specializing in play therapy with children, as well as working with adolescents and adults affected by family violence. 

Through his education and experience, Jacob has worked with clients in a variety of treatment methods including play therapy and activity therapy with children, and individual therapy with adults and adolescents. He has experience working with couples and families, as well as working with clients in a group setting. 

Jacob is passionate about working with clients to gain insight and understanding into the way in which they view and interact with the world, as well as how they relate their 'self' and others. Jacob works from a holistic framework, working to understand the individual and family from a variety of perspectives. Using a humanistic theoretical orientation, Jacob draws from Gestalt, Adlerian, and Existential theories, as well as family systems theory. Jacob has training and experience using play therapy, activity therapy, and Sandtray therapy in order to provide developmentally appropriate treatment to clients. 

He is currently an AAMFT clinical fellow, and a member of APT.
