Combined with his formal training, Mr. Jacocks added life experience when he joined with The Transformation Center in 2019. Mark holds a Christian worldview and is willing to integrate spirituality into counseling at the client’s request. His training at Regent University provides ethical application of counseling techniques focusing on the client’s belief system, and allows for social and cultural considerations. He works with adolescents ages 12 and up, adults, couples, and families.
HIs involvement with others in counseling assists in helping clients in addressing addiction, anxiety, conflict, depression, grief and loss, life stage transitions, personal/spiritual direction/growth, relationship concerns, and trauma. Mark feels that change is possible for the client when they possess the proper tools to work through life’s difficulties, and when they actively participate in setting goals and objectives at the beginning of and throughout the counseling process. He provides opportunities for the client to evaluate circumstance, process emotion, balance their thoughts and beliefs with their behaviors, and achieve a balance within their worldview that helps them in their ability to move forward in life.
Mr. Jacocks is facilitating the program "A New Way" offered at The Transformation Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee. This new program, offered for adolescents, is modeled after empirically proven theoretical approaches to change adverse behaviors in youth through developing skill sets.
