She approaches working with clients from a person centered lens, bringing genuine empathy and compassion to her psychotherapy work and tailoring treatment to each individual’s unique needs.

Jack Partain, LPC-Associate

Supervised by Cynthia Netting, LPC-S

Jack is a person-centered therapist who takes a whole-person view when working with clients, integrating the entire picture of a person’s life to help them find their strength. He has a BS in Psychology from UT Dallas and an M. Ed. in Counselor Education from the University of Texas at Austin. He primarily does individual and couples counseling with older adolescents and adults. He uses an eclectic approach that draws from many styles, but is rooted in person-centered, strengths-based, and systems-focused approaches.

Jack guides his clients in exploring feelings of anxiety, depression, and stress in a complex world. He focuses on creating a space for nonjudgmentally discussing life and feelings, then helps people find their strength and empower themselves to make change in how they act, feel, or think. He works closely with his clients and empowers them in sessions to collaboratively build the best treatment possible. He pulls from different approaches to structure treatment to what each person specifically needs, and helps them reach their personal goals. He also helps each person fill their own personal toolbox of ways to manage stress or negative emotion, drawing from mindfulness, CBT, and emotion-focused therapy. He offers couples therapy and is a Level 1 trained Gottman therapist.

He emphasizes the role of culture, gender identity, sexuality, and every other form of personal identity in each person’s life. He acknowledges his own personal privilege and allows each client to safely and freely share as much of their identity as they are comfortable with, then explores with them how that identity colors their experience with the world around them. He is LGBTQ+ affirming, sex positive, and always prioritizes making every person feel acknowledged and validated.

In his free time, Jack enjoys hiking, reading, and gaming. He loves to explore the city and the beautiful wilderness surrounding it.
