Resident In Counseling
EMDR Trained Therapist
Jeff Mazzone is a Resident in Counseling at Revelations Counseling & Consulting.
Born in Philadelphia and raised in Southern Maryland by parents both enlisted in the U.S. Navy who later divorced, Jeff lived in the Bronx and the lower Hudson Valley area of New York for 18 years before relocating to Fredericksburg in 2022. Jeff previously pursued the Catholic priesthood from 2002 to 2006 as a college seminarian for the Archdiocese of Washington, and then as a temporarily professed friar from 2006 to 2010 with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. Jeff later met and married his wife who is born of immigrant parents from Dominican Republic. They have three children.
As a clinician, Jeff works with teenagers, lay adults, and clergy seeking healing from:
- anxiety and depression
- obsessive-compulsive behaviors
- trauma and moral injury
- adverse life experiences
- unwanted sexual behaviors
- stress and mismanaged anger
- codependency, people-pleasing, and poor boundaries
Jeff desires to help clients uncover and uproot whatever may inhibit joy with one’s self and one’s relationships. He aims to assist clients in resolving deep-seated insecurity, inadequacy, inferiority, and low self-worth. He strives to accompany clients in discovering peace and wise living free from restlessness, overthinking, and worry.
Jeff’s approach to counseling incorporates psychodynamic, person-centered, and existential modalities, along with cognitive-behavioral methods from exposure therapy and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) each integrated with an understanding of the human person derived from the philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas.
Jeff also offers Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) following his certified training through the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA).
Jeff earned a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Liberty University in 2021. He received the Ronald E. Hawkins Distinguished Counseling Student Legacy Award, the highest honor Liberty bestows upon a counseling student. Jeff also earned a Master of Arts in Theology from St. Joseph’s Seminary in 2015.
Prior to beginning residency at Revelations, Jeff completed his clinical internship with licensed psychologist Timothy G. Lock, PhD at the Goretti Center for Healing and Forgiveness in Brookfield, CT.
Jeff also presents at professional conferences and publishes articles in peer-reviewed professional publications where he advocates for therapists to move from merely alleviating a client’s symptoms to promoting a client’s intellectual, volitional, emotional, spiritual, bodily, and relational flourishing.
