Jonathan practices with a client-centered approach to foster a collaborative working alliance. He believes that warmth, empathy and respect are integral in cultivating a growth-fostering environment for clients to feel seen, understood and valued. Further, he acknowledges that all behavior has meaning, and this principle can offer personal awareness or empowerment to authentically reauthor one’s direction in life. Jonathan utilizes psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and strength-based interventions to holistically augment the client’s personal growth, improve adaptive functioning and facilitate wellness.
