It is often said that life is a journey in which you experience"ups and downs". Unfortunately for many who experience a down time, there are difficulties overcoming barriers when trying to go back "up" again. I want to meet you where you are when you are overwhelmed by those barriers. I want to walk with you and work with you toward an improved quality of life while helping you arm yourself with the necessary tools to navigate through any future barriers.
My name is Johnathan Lein. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW - LMSW-C) originally from Michigan with over 25 years of experience in psychotherapy. I graduated with my BA in Sociology/Social Work in 1983 and earned my MSW in Social Work in 2001. After working under clinical supervision I became fully licensed in 2006. I have spent my career working in three areas: Medical Social Work, Educational Social Work and Psychotherapy/Counseling. I have worked with young people, adults, geriatric adults, and individuals in the LBGTQ community. I have also been a school administrator in both the public and private sectors in two states.
Some, but not all the areas I have experience in are anxiety, life changes, self-esteem issues, depression, grief, young adults on the autism spectrum, intimacy & sexual issues, sexual abuse survivors, trauma, career transition issues, learning disabilities and family issues.
When meeting with a client, I use a Person Centered Approach. I want to guide you as you travel the journey toward a better place in life while utilizing my training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client Focused Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I want to get to know you well, so that together we can approach your barriers and navigate toward a positive outcome. I always consider it a privilege to work with each individual who entrusts me as their therapist.

Upon my initial joining of BetterHelp, I was enduring not only the stresses of being a graduate student but the overwhelming nature of bereavement. Of course, that got pushed aside as Covid-19 became the focus. Jonathan has provided complete care and comfort throughout the entire therapeutic process and is dedicated to truly hearing the needs of his clients. I do believe it was more than intuition that Johnathan was chosen to counsel me.
His feedback as a professional mixed with his Christian values has definitely improved my life for the better!
Johnathan Lein is a very sensitive and insightful counselor. His dedication to dealing with some complex issues in couple counseling has been extraordinary. My significant other (gentleman) has been very pleased! Johnathan knows how to support both women and men effectively. Highly recommended!
Johnathan has been great! Fantastic advice in our conversations, helpful activities. I'm very grateful for Johnathan and better help for matching him with me!
Jonathan was great to work with. We did not do too many sessions but the ones we did were beneficial. Thanks Jonathan!
Jonathan is a very conscientious listener and it is very clear he is an expert. There is no doubt in my mind I am receiving state of the art care when I talk to him. Would very much recommend.
So far good.
Johnathan is a counselor that has real life experience to draw from. Not just a group of token phrases.
Johnathon supported me in every way I asked him to.
Johnathan comes to me at a very perfect level of understanding and connects his own life experiences to my own. He adds the perfect amount of spiritual advice in our sessions. I appreciate all the knowledge and care he has shared with me!
