Across all of his work, Jon brings warmth, understanding, and patience…plus a healthy dose of humor! In his more than 30 years of experience as a therapist and presenter, clients have felt comforted by his ability to acknowledge that the challenges they face are complex – and often downright exhausting! In acknowledgment of this, his work is grounded in delivering tools that can be implemented immediately. Who has time to wait?
Jon’s most requested presentations are: “The Secret Loves of Teens and Tweens,” “Let’s Talk About The “A” Word” (Anxiety), and “QPR Suicide Prevention.” In addition, Jon has created many new presentations in the past two years including “Teens, Tweens, and Quarantines,” and “Understanding our New Norms and Supporting Mental Health in the COVID Era."
Jon holds a BA from Clark University and an MS in Counseling from the University of Hartford. He was the director of mental health centers in Stoughton and in Needham Massachusetts from 1993-2017, and has operated his practice to offer presentations, consultations, and consulting services for 25 years.
My wife and I live outside of Boston. But, very often we can be found enjoying the scenery of Western MA.
My hobbies include: kayaking, travel, reading, and music.
Even though I grew up in Philadelphia, I am a devoted Boston sports fan!
