Jeff Koenig MSW, LISW
Jeff received his Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from The Ohio State University and his Bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies from Mount Vernon Nazarene College.
Jeff was originally trained as a family therapist, working with children and adolescents using family interventions. He is trained and experienced in various trauma therapies, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). He has worked extensively with persons experiencing co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders, as well as compulsive behaviors and mood dysregulation disorders (which includes depression, depression with anxiety, and Bipolar Disorder). Jeff also has training and experience in working with male sexual abuse survivors, adults and adolescents with ADD and ADHD, as well as people on the Autistic Spectrum.
Jeff’s therapeutic approach is interpersonal and relational in nature, focusing on the therapeutic relationship as an important part of the healing process. He believes relaxation training and somatic awareness can benefit people experiencing anxiety and depression, especially those with a history of significant trauma. He welcomes family involvement when working with adolescents. Adolescents experiencing depression, anxiety, school problems, and difficulty concentrating are welcome. Jeff also welcomes adolescents and adults with a diagnosis of High Functioning Autism who seek to improve their social and communication skills. He enjoys helping people suffering from depression and anxiety find hope and healing, and more fulfilling personal and professional lives.
