Jonathan has his LMFT and works with teenagers, couples, families and individuals. His desire is to meet clients where they are, not where they believe they should be, and help others alter their behaviors and experiences through scientifically proven methods grounded in the power of relationship and the brain’s ability to restructure itself.
Jonathan believes that his relationships with his clients are at least as important as the specific models of therapy he uses. Providing clients with a safe, nonjudgmental space is critical not only to their experience of therapy, but is an effective approach in and of itself.
One of the most incredible finds in the field of neurobiology over the last couple of decades has been that our brains are “plastic” (think melted plastic) in that they are moldable. And not just moldable in some nebulous ethereal way either, our experiences and actions literally shape our brains. This means that your brain works in a unique manner, different from anybody else’s, and that it has been shaped by all your past experiences, relationships and interactions. The most astounding part of this discovery is that, by engaging in specific experiences, your brain has the ability to change and grow even now. No matter how old you are, your brain is plastic and moldable. Jonathan’s therapy is designed to help clients restructure and exercise their brains via the experience of a secure relationship.
