Jason brings nearly ten years of clinical experience as a group home manager, outpatient clinician, group facilitator, and an outreach clinician in the mental health field. Since 2017, he has been working with uniformed service professionals in the USP, helping them learn to live life with more purpose and vitality at work, home, or wherever they are in life.
In addition to Jason’s professional psychology experience, he is a lecturer at Springfield College and Bay Path University. He has taught courses in abnormal psychology, clinical assessment and diagnosis, personality theory, and child development.
As part of Jason’s personal training, he participates regularly in silent, teacher-led meditation retreats in the Vipassana tradition. Professionally, he uses mindfulness-based techniques and other tools to help people reduce stress in their lives, increase focus, and make values-based changes in their lives that work for them. Jason is personable and easily approachable in his interactions with co-workers and patients. “This is the best team I’ve ever been a part of,” says Jason. “A dedicated group of professionals who truly devote themselves to their work and also strive to embody the principles we all teach at the USP.”
