Jonathan Pagano

LMHC

About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health counselor with three years of experience in the Mental Health Counseling and Rehabilitation fields. My experience is varied as I have worked with veterans, women, children, victims of abuse, couples, families, and teenagers. I use a client-centered approach that focuses on increasing the clients' insight and giving them the tools so that they can navigate life's problems on their own.

I have worked with clients suffering from various symptoms of depression, anxiety, substance abuse, ADHD, anger, guilt, relationship difficulties, parenting problems, and family issues. I have also treated clients who have experienced sexual, physical, and emotional trauma.

I use evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). These therapies are well-established and they help us to understand how the way we feel is influenced by our thoughts. I can help you learn strategies that manage stress and minimize dysfunctional feelings.

You are taking a big step in reaching out for help. I am here for you to make it easier to reach your goals while providing a supportive and comfortable environment for you to discuss your inner feelings and thoughts.

I look forward to meeting with you!

This is my first time using Betterhelp for Therapy.

Jonathan was been able to understand and listen to my issues and concerns.

It has been a good experience.

I would recommend Jonathan as a Therapist.

Jonathan Pagano is calm and understanding. He keeps it simple and listens when you speak. He offers useful tools right from the start and the sessions keep getting better and more constructive.

During my short time with Jonathan I feel he has truly grasped a sense of what I am looking for both in a therapist and for my future. He is attentive, listens and provides supporting material.

Empathic. Understanding and extremely comforting in his approach to therapy.

Very kind and understanding. I like the way he structures the sessions and how he always gives me tools that help me deal with the problems I’m facing. Even when I don’t have much to talk about, I still benefit from our sessions!

Work with me!
