As an experienced counselor, I have worked with a diverse range of clients and have experience in addressing various mental health challenges. Whether it's anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, or relationship issues, I am committed to providing personalized support tailored to each individual's needs. Outside of my professional life, I find fulfillment in spending time with my family, attending church, going on vacations, listening to gospel music, cooking, and reading. These experiences bring me joy and inform and inspire my counseling approach. I look forward to working with you on your journey toward healing, growth, and a renewed sense of purpose.

Hi there! My name is Jaron Cotton and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 5 years of experience in the field of mental health. While life is a blessing for us all, it can bring incredible challenges filled with stress that can seem impossible at times. My goal in therapy is understand your goals and work together to help you achieve them. True growth comes from challenging ourselves to process, reflect and adapt in a healthy way. Remember that asking for help and showing vulnerability is actually a sign of strength, never a weakness! I am available through telehealth only at this time, but may be accepting in-person clients in the future. Thank you!
