About Jaxon Straub
My twenty years as a bartender, prior to obtaining my Masters in Mental Health Counseling, is
the spark that led to me to become a counselor. From this unique viewpoint, I was able to
observe and interact with a multitude of personalities and their behaviors, not in a counseling
room, but in life and in real time. I have spoken to many people and I know the difficulties,
personally, when attempting to find both meaning and the peace of mind one strives for in life.
This difficult journey is not yours to burden alone but instead a shared one that we will go
through together and is the heart of how I view the counseling process.
This process centers upon viewing the individual holistically; mind, body, and spirit and is
enacted by not only using traditional talk therapy, which focuses on our life story and patterns
of behavior, but by looking at the system in its entirety. Together, we will look to see where this
system can be improved upon in order to navigate a solution to your problems. To fully
understand my own story was the beginning but it was the the eventual learning of how my
system operated and interacted on all these levels which led to both healing and growth. This
growth is done by the use of techniques, including, mindfulness, meditation, hypnotherapy,
cognitive behavioral therapy, and nutritional and wellness counseling. Having also gained
extensive clinical knowledge through a recent year long internship in a psychiatric and
substance use clinic, as well as my working with the supervision of a local Delray therapist with
thirty years experience, no stone is left unturned.
