Meet the DaySpring Counseling Team
Dr. Jason E Newsome
President of DaySpring Counseling
Hi! Thanks for visiting. I’m Jason Newsome, the president of DaySpring Counseling and I am thrilled that you are wanting to learn more. I have been a mental health counselor for over 10 years. Since that time, I have worked with a variety of clients and client problems. In addition to my day-to-day counseling work, I have also spent a considerable amount of time and effort training other professionals and occasionally teaching at the University of Charleston.
As far as my education is concerned, I obtained a Regents Bachelor of Arts from WVU Institute of Technology, master’s degree in Counseling from Marshall University, and Doctor of Philosophy in Counseling Studies from Capella University.
The reason I do what I do is because I believe that people can improve their lives. I believe people can change the way they think and feel on a daily basis and also change how they act toward and interact with others. I believe people can have better relationships, a stronger sense of purpose, feel better about themselves, and have fulfilling lives regardless of what they have been through or where they’ve come from. From a practical standpoint,
I believe most of our psychological problems can be improved by learning how to think differently. This is no easy task, for sure. However, I believe by tapping into our belief systems, weeding out the stuff that’s causing problems, and replacing it with truth, we really can make some big changes in our lives. To accomplish this, I primarily use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy with individuals and Strategic Family Therapy when working with couples and families.
Personally, I have an amazing wife and four awesome children. I love to play golf and music. If there’s ever a career that calls for a person that is a terrible golfer and a mediocre musician, I’ll be set for life! I’m kidding, of course. I love helping people. It really is much more than a job. It’s a passion and a bit of a calling for me. I look forward to working with you to change your life!
