PsyD, MHA, CPC, FACHE
Jeff Comer, PsyD, is no stranger to the effects of stress on health. Having held positions for over 20 years as a hospital CEO, he’s witnessed firsthand not only the massive toll of disease states in patients whose stress goes unmitigated but also upon the health care leaders who cared for them. It’s with this unique perspective that he pursued his Psy.D., intent on discovering the neurochemical components of stress and burnout. His dissertational focus was on mindfulness techniques to ameliorate PTSD symptoms in combat veterans —arguably the most stressed group of professionals in the world.

After 30 years in practice, my patient base consists of adolescents, adults, seniors, couples, military veterans and their loved ones.
After many years of my own psychotherapy with several different behavioral health practitioners, I am grateful for their reaching out to me with their intelligence, experience and empathy. The majority of my patients seeking psychotherapy complain and often exhibit signs of depression or anxiety, and often both. They often have difficulty throughout the day and night, having trouble concentrating with fatigue and poor short-term memory, with persistent eating issues, and hypersomnia and or insomnia, worsening their condition. My treatment techniques include psychodynamic therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused.

Welcoming to Veterans of our Armed Forces especially those diagnosed w PTSD and depression.
I want to be your support in your journey of recovery. This is not going to be an easy journey but together we are stronger than alone. Trauma is often (but not always) at the root of difficulty in relationships, inability to manage anger, and addiction. If you have the desire to change Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) may be the treatment for you. I come from a Person Centered perspective in my approach to talk therapy which underscores accurate empathy and positive regard. For couples I utilize Prepare/Enrich (Google it) after assisting clients in identifying trauma "triggers" affecting their relationship.

What type of Phoenix mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Phoenix?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
