My name is Jeff Ferguson and I am a graduate of University of Wisconsin - Whitewater with a Master's Degree in Community Counseling. I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Wisconsin.
I provide couples therapy as well as adult and/or child individual therapy. I have over 12 years experience working with children and their families in a wide variety of settings. As a therapist, my passion has always been children and adolescents, but my interest extends to adults and couples as well.
I believe that children are a direct product of their environment, specifically their home life. I focus on the family and the environment, as well as on how the environment impacts those around us. I utilize the family systems perspective, as well as a holistic approach encompassing solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and play therapy approaches. I love to get on the floor with the children I see and I get down to their level. I find that I have a great sense of humor that I use to put children at ease. I also find that I can relate to teenagers as I have worked with them for many years. I feel that I can quickly gain their respect and trust as I am patient, kind and gentle, while at the same time I hold children and teenagers responsible for their behaviors. I am fair and honest and I tend to get results.
I have a great amount of training in trauma therapy, play therapy and in Attachment Disorder therapy. I have extensive experience with persons with multiple diagnoses and mental illness. I am well-versed on physical impairments and have a special interest with the Hard of Hearing (HOH) and children with Asperger Syndrome/Autism. I received my EMDR certification in 2006. I utilize HMR, EMDR, Brainspotting, and IFS along with my training in trauma therapy to counsel persons with extreme trauma, single incident trauma and long-term abuse.
