Founder & Co-owner

I have created a life I absolutely love, despite the past challenges of anxiety, depression, perfectionism and food and body image woes, and would be honored to help you create your roadmap to happiness and healing, building a life that you, too, absolutely love.

 

In our partnership you can expect unwavering support, a safe space for you to share vulnerable thoughts, exploration of the root cause of the challenges you are facing and our collaboration in building coping and self-care skills. I am a promoter and firm believer of body kindness, self-care and self-compassion.

Above all, I work with you, where you are, at a pace that feels right to you.

I’ve been told that I am "nurturing" and "centered" and believe these are important qualities in our work together.  Therapy with me is untraditional in that we will laugh and I hope you look forward to our sessions, despite the challenges of working through vulnerable and hard “stuff”. Therapy with me presents itself as traditional, as our work is highly confidential and I am a credentialed and experienced professional trained to support you on your journey. I practice from a Health at Every Size (HAES) and Intuitive Eating approach when supporting healthy relationships with one's body and food. 

I am a Pennsylvania Licensed Clinical Social Worker who utilizes various therapeutic modalities in our work together, as I do not believe therapy is "one size fits all". I presented most recently for the National Association of Social Workers and the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP) on the topics of mindfulness, trauma and the eating disorder population. Furthermore, I also serve as the In House Mental Health Professional for DiveThru, an app founded to promote mental wellness.

Hi! I'm Jonathan. I am a husband, father, and therapist who specializes in supporting people navigating various life challenges including life transitions, parenting, spousal challenges, fatherhood, sexuality, intimacy, and challenging toxic masculinity. 

 

I believe that a safe space is a brave space. I do my best in crafting safety, which allows for self-exploration and healing at your pace. 

 

Please know that you do not need to be going through a life challenge or be in distress to talk to a therapist. Therapy is a valuable form of self-care and I can aid in strengthening your self-care goals. 

 

I utilize an integrated and holistic approach to psychotherapy. I borrow from various modalities (Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral, Developmental, Liberation, Somatic, and Mindfulness-Based) and work through a trauma-informed and culturally sensitive lens. I am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing).

 

I am a native of Lima, Peru, and fluent in English/Spanish. As a man of color, I can certainly speak to (and attest to) the various intersections we find ourselves in, as well as the challenges of navigating life within these intersections. 

 

If you are ready to embark on a journey of self-exploration, healing, and well-being, please be in touch for a consultation.
