Counseling, Family Therapy, and Addiction Recovery 

When life becomes overwhelming, turn to Next Breath Counseling. The foundation of his practice stems from working with the mind and the body through a combination of mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.


This integrated mind-body-spirit approach not only builds skills, but it also helps you to develop your ability to confidently handle various emotional states and life challenges and establish a deeper connection to yourself, reality, and truth.


For families and couples in need of therapy or counseling, Jake’s experiential therapy focuses on healing, attachment, and the ability to communicate with compassion and authenticity. You will learn how your own conditioning and patterns affect your ability to connect with others and how to cultivate your own inner sense of safety.


Those seeking recovery counseling in Glenwood Springs and beyond will benefit from Jake’s clinical and experiential perspective on recovery. Through a compassionate exploration of your past, patterns, triggers, and beliefs, you will be able to clearly understand the nature of your struggle with addiction. New skills, like Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention, will help you on your journey to create a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle.


 Take the time today to make a happier and healthier life for you tomorrow!
