C. Jefferson Hood is a licensed marriage and family therapist and an ordained pastor. He brings his background as a therapist and pastor to his work and speaking. And of course to his words in the new book Power Up.
For the last six years, Jeff has been involved in counseling with members of the military on posts across the central and southern United States and at six OCONUS bases in Germany, Italy and South Korea. Over the course of his career, he has maintained a private practice, taught courses at the university level, and led numerous support groups—for women, men and for those going through a divorce. At the beginning of his career as a therapist, he was the director of counseling for an agency in Tennessee.
Jeff has an earned doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy from Texas Tech University. He is licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist in Florida and South Carolina. And of course he is an ordained pastor.
Dr. Hood is a native of Texas, having been “born and raised” in Ft. Worth. He now lives with his wife, Linda, in the upstate region of South Carolina. Jeff and Linda have five married children who live in Florida, Colorado, Texas, South Carolina and Oklahoma. He is proud to be Poppy or Grandpa Jeff to fifteen grandchildren as well.
