Jonathan's work is based on a desire to foster a mindful environment of growth and healing for his clients, that honors the complexity of human experience, and enables each person to access their own inner wisdom. He has worked in residential, intensive outpatient, community clinic, school, and private practice settings, providing counseling and psychotherapy to a variety of populations . His extensive psychodynamic training during his tenure at The Maple Counseling Center in Beverly Hills, CA, plays an important role in his ability to help clients to overcome their current struggles, through greater insight into their personal history and relational patterns. Jonathan's education and training in mindfulness helps provide a foundation of present-moment awareness and compassion in his work. Having been trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Jonathan works with clients to increase their mind-body awareness in order to process unresolved traumas, and enable clients to begin to use their body as a resource for insight and self-regulation. Jonathan believes that the experiences psychotherapy provides, leads to a greater awareness that enables us to better understand ourselves, compassionately engage with others, and increase the overall quality of our lives.
