Jason Zupke (student intern)

“The most powerful healing arises from the simple intention to love the life within you, unconditionally, with as much tenderness and presence as possible.”

—Tara Brach

Jason believes that everyone has an innate power to change, grow, and heal. Utilizing a collaborative strengths-based approach, his humor, compassion, and non-judgemental stance help foster an open and inclusive environment.

Jason is an LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist. He appreciates working with individuals, couples, and families. He is passionate about evidence-based practices for substance use disorders, men’s issues, and the mind-body-spirit connection. Jason studied spirituality & healing, grief & loss, forgiveness, and mindfulness at The University of Minnesota’s Earl E. Bakken Center for Spirituality & Healing. He draws from several theoretical frameworks including Narrative Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Attachment Theory, and Internal Family Systems (IFS). He is in the final stage of completing his master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. He is certified in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and trained in Brainspotting.

In his free time, Jason enjoys walking around the cities with his dog Eli, listening to way too many podcasts, practicing yoga, and spending time in nature.
