Jake Fields, LPC
NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS
Hello, my name is Jake Fields and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been working as a
therapist for just over 4 years now. I received my Bachelors of Science in Human Services, with an emphasis in Criminal Justice from Grace Christian University in 2015. I then, graduated from Liberty University with my Masters of Education in School Counseling back in the spring of 2020. During my time as a student with Liberty, I worked on a college campus, serving college-aged adults. In my last semester of my graduate program, I served as an intern at Sparta Middle School and Elementary School, working in their counseling department. After graduating from Liberty, I started working for Newaygo County Mental Health, providing therapy services for children, adolescents and their families. Beginning in 2023, I started working part time with BetterHelp therapy services, serving adults virtually.
All of these experiences have given me a very wide scope of practice when it comes to the concerns that client's seek therapy for. I am comfortable working with children, adults and couples, ages 8-40. I have an immense amount of experience working with concerns such as ADHD, self-esteem, substance use and addiction, anger, relationship dynamics, and depression and anxiety.
Throughout my experiences, I have found that clients see me as a very relational and personable therapist. Kids especially, find my therapeutic approach to be one that makes them feel like they are talking to someone they can trust and be themselves around. My philosophy with therapy, is that I believe all people are capable of changing and improving their lives. If you have therapy services with me, my hope and goal is that you utilize the skills that I have learned, and that this leads to you having a greater sense of control over your life.
A little about me personally, I absolutely love the outdoors. My hobbies consist of: Hunting, fishing,
camping, hiking, kayaking, and many other outdoor activities. I am a Christian, and love to be able to
incorporate my faith into my practice when I am given the opportunity or when clients request a faith-based approach. I love many different genres of music, and also love to incorporate music into therapy as well.
Thank you for taking the time to read my bio, and if you end up being a client of mine, I look forward to meeting you!
