This agency was born out of love and frustration. After working with kids and families in various capacities for over twenty years (teacher, principal, youth pastor, etc.), Jeff completed his Masters of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy, earned his license as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and continued working with kids, adults, couples, and families with a compassionate desire to see people not only overcome their current and immediate struggles but to gain the confidence and life-skills to face future concerns.
At the same time, he struggled with the overwhelming desire to be with his wife and children more, if being with his wife constantly was not realistic. As he would leave each day to walk alongside of people in need of hope, he became increasingly frustrated by agency systems that were ineffective and even counterproductive to the objectives for the people being served. Through a combination of unfortunate events and a desire to invest better support for his family and the people he served, Above All Behavioral Health Services was launched with the help of his wife, Melanie, and an indispensable business partner, Wendi, who is passionate about people and doing things with integrity.
Above All Behavioral Health Services is focused on people. We still believe in humanity and believe that each person who seeks our temporary assistance is capable, if they put in the effort, of engaging life’s challenges with confidence.
