About Jon

As a graduate of Pepperdine University, I possess a sound educational foundation to help individuals, couples, families and children learn new ways to communicate effectively.

As a speaker, I have presented to more than 25,000 people through my organization, Not-the-Target (www.notthetarget.org). Not-the-Target provide parents, children and teachers with the information they need to be assertive and stand up for themselves. I also started The Therapy Co-Operative, an organization dedicated to making sure therapists are they best they can be.

Counseling Philosophy

I believe that each human possesses the capacity to live a meaningful life. I work with both thoughts and feelings to help you find meaning in your life. During sessions, I strive to provide you with a safe and nourishing learning environment to explore your particular challenges.

By exploring thoughts and feelings, we integrate our own internal intellectual and body wisdom to define a meaningful life. We are all teachers and students. I love the process of counseling because we learn from one another during sessions.

School Based Counseling

For more than 5 years I have worked closely with schools and their students in therapeutic settings. I hire, train and manage trainees and interns at a non-profit agency.
