Jacob D. Lozier, MA LIMHP CPC
Independent Mental Health Practitioner/Therapist
Jacob D. Lozier, MA LIMHP is an independent mental health practitioner and therapist. Jacob (he/him/his) earned his BA in Education from Fairmont State University in Fairmont, West Virginia, and his MA in Counseling with a concentration in Community Counseling (CACREP-Accredited) from West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia.
Jake enjoys working with individuals, couples, and families who are eager to face the challenges in their lives and relationships, and to grow in safety and connection. He counsels individuals with diverse sexualities and gender identities who are experiencing anxiety, depression, or mood disorders. Jacob’s approach is affirming for adults in all types of consensual relationship structures. Jake also facilitates our support group for transgender and gender diverse adults. As a trans person himself, Jake brings an knowledgeable, supportive, thoughtful, and holistic approach to the therapeutic process.
Jake’s early career background as an educator focused on teaching students who were identified as gifted yet underperforming academically. He encountered exceptionally bright youth who were struggling with undiagnosed ADHD, anxiety, learning disabilities, and problems with mood and/or behavior regulation. Those experiences clarified for Jake that counseling relationships were his preferred way of working with adolescents and adults alike.
During his Master’s training, Jake completed his practicum hours at Olney Friends School in Barnesville, Ohio. The Quaker values of global citizenship, environmental stewardship, integrity, empathy, and reflection are foundational to Olney Friends School. These values are evident in Jake’s way of relating with the world and other people. Jake is particularly skilled at incorporating these values into his therapeutic work with the LGBTQ+ community as well as people with other marginalized identities.
My philosophy as a therapist is based on my belief that difficulties often appear when we lack the security of belonging. Therapeutic relationships can acquaint clients with the feeling of belonging, as I strive to connect with each person through attuned listening, asking questions, and encouraging emotional expression. I prioritize connection while gently challenging individuals to reduce unhelpful avoidance, thoughts, or behaviors that may be interfering with accomplishing mastery over their own lives.
