Jeff Yocom, LCSW

Trained in several research-supported treatment models, including CBT, DBT, EMDR, Motivational Interviewing, and EEG Biofeedback, Jeff provides individual therapy for adult clients dealing with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, compulsive behaviors and trauma. He notes that he doesn’t hesitate to refer clients to other therapists when his skill set does not match their personal needs. Before becoming a therapist, Jeff enjoyed a successful 23-year career as a technology writer and Internet publishing entrepreneur where he built a skill set to help counsel professionals developing themselves and their careers.
“ I particularly welcome clients who feel that previous treatment or recovery experiences gave them unwanted labels or methods that did not feel right. I work with  individual needs, backgrounds and values to create a comfortable method and environment for change.

EMDR, Trauma, Depression, Anxiety, TBI


Lizzy is a Certified Therapy Dog who specializes in evidence-based canine therapeutic techniques, including the calm acceptance of human affection and behaving in ways that are often cute and sometimes silly. This three-year-old, 60-pound, hypo-allergenic Goldendoodle frequently visits the Renew Counseling welcome area and sits in on therapy sessions with her adopted father and clinical partner, Jeff Yocom, LCSW. Lizzy is a proud graduate of GRRAND (Golden Retriever Rescue & Adoption of Needy Dogs) and WAGS (Wonderful Animals Giving Support) Pet Therapy of Kentucky. Lizzy and Jeff are a certified WAGS ambassador team, and when she is not helping Renew clients, she visits with patients in local psychiatric hospitals as a WAGS volunteer.
Lizzy is a cherished presence at Renew. We love all animals but because client safety and comfort is our first priority, outside dogs, cats, and pets of other types are not allowed in the office. If a service animal accompanies you please let us know in advance.
