Dr. Jeff Brockman
New Leaf Counseling Group was founded by Mr. Logan Cohen in 2014 and established in the Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte. Over the last 12 years, New Leaf has been dedicated to serving community members who are in need of emotional and psychological support, especially those struggling with disruption in their most personal and intimate social relationships. Dr. Jeff Brockman (Dr. Jeff) is an amazing therapist who truly carries on this philosophy.
I am a mental health therapist in Charlotte, NC who helps adolescents and adults get relief from anxiety,
depression, school behavior issues, and grief.
As the parent of a struggling adolescent or as an adult experiencing anxiety, depression, and/or
grief, you have likely done many Google searches such as “therapist near me” or “anxiety
therapist” or “ADHD therapist.” You have consulted other parents and friends and perhaps
even other anxiety therapists or other teen therapists in Charlotte. You are frustrated, and I can help!
I have both academic and personal experience (ask me about the 3rd grade kickball game) in
these areas. My calling into teaching and into counseling has a lot to do with my own personal
story, my own darkness into light journey. I know what it is like when you no longer enjoy your
favorite activities, when you feel hopeless, when you cannot sleep, when your anxiety feels out
When I was six years old, we found out that my mother had a brain tumor. Her story is all too
familiar: she started treatment, got better, but…the cancer returned. She died on August 31,
1971, on what would have been my first day of third grade. Those were some dark days and
years, but I did do a significant part of my grieving in my childhood—I cried every night for six
months. My father remarried someone who already had two children of her own, so we were
negotiating the difficulties of blended families. Melding two families together can be very
challenging; there were some huge fights.
In my mid-twenties I went to a psychiatrist and a mental health therapist because I was having
some significant anxiety as well as depression. The diagnosis? Unresolved grief related to my
mother’s death. So, I started my journey as a client. Over the last couple of decades, I
have developed significant relationships with several different mental health
therapists (Tim, Jack, and Michael), which not only afforded me relief from grief, depression,
and anxiety, but also gave me deep insight into how much counseling and therapy can help us.
I know how to overcome grief, depression, and anxiety because I’ve done it myself—through
Mental Health Therapy is the best investment you can make for yourself.
Not only have I learned the intimate depths of a meaningful therapeutic relationship with professional therapists myself, but I have completed the necessary clinical training to do the same with Others. After coming from the associated fields of Teaching and Ministry, I believe I am a great fit for most clients looking for their own experiences of personal growth with a professional therapist in Charlotte, NC. Therapy is the best investment you can make for yourself and/or your Loved Ones so if you are the parent of a struggling teen or an adult with anxiety of depression yourself, then call (704-457-1789) or email me at Jeff@NewLeafCLT.com.
