I am Jerry A. Riggs, Sr. I have advanced degrees in psychology, systematic theology, law enforcement and legal practice. I have been conducting mental health counseling sessions since 2016. Regarding mental health counseling techniques, my specialties are: secular mental health counseling intertwined with Christian theology when appropriate; psychodynamic interviewing and therapy; cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT); mindfulness therapy; gestalt therapy; psychoeducational therapy; and Christian pastoral counseling if needed. My above listed techniques work best for patients suffering from: anxiety, depression, guilt/shame issues, relationship issues, family counseling, marriage mediation, bereavement issues, self-esteem issues and teenage angst. I have been successful with my techniques working on all populations; however, based upon the above and my applicable prior life careers and experiences, I am especially effective with public employees, such as law enforcement and firefighters, lawyers, ministers and teenagers.
