Hello, my name is Jono. I am an individual and family psychotherapist.
Thank you for your courage and trust in coming and allow me to understand what you have been going through and your present concerns.
For all of us, life can sometimes be difficult when we are faced with all sorts of challenges. When things don't go well, it is natural and normal for us to feel stressed, defeated, discouraged and disturbed. The feelings of depression, anxiety, loss, desperation and helplessness can make us feel isolated and hopeless. Often our problems appear to be never-ending and we lose sight of who we are and the strengths that are within us. Having recovered from depression myself and being a psychotherapist, I understand what it means to feel exhausted and overwhelmed by these conditions. It has always been my passion and desire to walk with folks who are going through a difficult time and be a partner in your life journey. If part of the human experience is about going through this valley, no one should be walking alone.
Having graduated from University of Washington with Master of Social Work, I have over 10 years of experience working with children, couples, adults and families from all walks of life. I have partnered with many clients with a wide range of concerns including chronic depression, severe anxiety, panic attacks, relationship issues, substance abuse issues, various addictions, family problems, adjustment stress, personality disorders, OCD and ADHD.
My specialty utilizes a whole-person strength-based approach where your dignity, empowerment and comfort are my top priorities. When we meet, I will dedicate all of my attention and presence to be with you and listen to your words and accept all of your feelings. I will be your partner in this journey and tailor our dialog to meet your unique and specific needs. I will provide effective tools to help eliminate symptoms and maximize healing. Together we will re-discover our strengths to solve problems, find support, be empowered and take back what was lost during these times: Comfort, Confidence, Imagination and Hope.
Some of the therapy modalities I use include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (Understanding and changing relationships between thoughts, feelings and behaviors), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (Learning to make room for uncomfortable feelings and defuse thoughts, while commit to actions and values that are important to you), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy (Developing awareness on potential issues that are consciously unknown), Solution Focused Therapy, and Crisis Intervention.
Thank you again for taking your time to read these words and sharing your courage with me by letting me work with you.
May you be happy.
May you be well.
May you be safe.
May you be peaceful and at ease.

Jono is so lovely. He has helped me so much already, and he has comforted me a lot in my times of need. I'm so happy that I found him and I would recommend him to anyone. He listens, and you can feel the warmth and the care even through the phone.
Jono has been incredibly patient with me. He has responded with compassion to the extreme set of circumstances in my life. I needed tools to help process the pain and anxiety that have been crippling me. Jono has given me tools and has been very encouraging and specific with instructions and advice on how to confront and manage my daily emotional state. These tools are changing my life. I am incredibly thankful for both Jono and Better Help.
In the short time that I have been working with Mr. Jono Lee, he has already helped me tremendously in managing my anxiety. I can tell through his responses that he truly cares about me and my well-being. His examples and explanations are fantastic and I can easily understand what to do and what to work on. He asks thought provoking questions that have helped me gain a lot of personal insight as well. This is my first time utilizing a service like BetterHelp and I must say I am *extremely* satisfied. I have already recommended the service to my friends due to my experiences with Jono.
Thank you so much Jono and I look forward to continue working with you!
Jono was very helpful and thorough. He explained thoroughly the concepts he taught me and provided resources and suggestions as well. He was very responsive and kind. I really appreciated his help and effort!
Offers good advice, good at listening, and understanding offers very good advice, and guidance.
Jono is absolutely wonderful, I truly appreciate his attentive and caring personality.
He is very helpful in defining where my issues lie at their source and shows me how I can address them in a healthy and effective manner. In only a short few weeks I feel better than I have in a while.
Jono is amazing and has patience I think I needed more than I thought I did. I am glad I came here for help, its helping me learn to be a better human to myself and also to others
He is a great listener and helps you no matter what.
Jono has been instrumental in helping me better understand what drives me and breaks down issues I've let build up for years! I was weary about signing up, but he makes me feel like therapy is a journey to growing myself to be a stronger and better person and on the path to reach my goals. Pretty awesome!
Jono helped me learn the tools I needed to manage my anxiety and stress. He explains complicated concepts simply and actively tries to engage you. I would recommend him highly, the tools he taught me have had impacts on my life already.
I enjoy working with Jono. He is very kind and listens with interest. I feel he hears what I am saying and what I want to get out of counseling. In this very uncertain time I appreciate the connection and a thoughtful and very responsive counselor. He always provides practical tasks and useful tool.
I can tell Jono cares about his patients. He would check up on me when I didn’t reply to his messages. He was always wishing me well. I can tell he likes his job and I can tell that he practices what he teaches. I am thankful that I had him for my counselor.
I love that Jono seems to have an in tune and sense of need and compassion. Messages are thoughtful, thorough and really give the prompting to work and reflect. Through our text sessions I get to go back and reread and have uncovered some underlying insights that have not been accomplished in other forms of therapy. I would love to actually hear Jono speak but appointment times may be in a different time zone as mine. I am okay continuing in current format and just imagining my sage wisdom coming from a voice of the great philosophers: Dumbledore, Yoda, Snape, Robin Williams, Fred Rogers all in one.
Jono is a very kind and compassionate counselor. He was able to address my concerns with encouragement and challenged me to grow in a healthy way. I was very busy while going to therapy, but Jono was patient with me throughout the whole time. When I had specific questions, he was always happy to answer me. I believe that therapy is a challenging thing to engage in; I know that I certainly had moments when I felt less excited about filling out a worksheet or trying a new exercise. But I am very thankful to have had Jono as a therapist, since he was so generous with his time and truly pushed me to try new things to improve my life. I'm glad that I took the chance. I would recommend him for sure!
Jono is incredibly perceptive and thoughtful. He gently steers me in the right direction and reminds me, with great compassion, that mindfulness in the moment is key. A key struggle of mine was finding mercy for myself and Jono offered my kindness and patient to me. He is a very likable and talented therapist.
I have been struggling with my mental health for years and it's nice to have counseling I can do at my own pace.
Jono is extremely intelligent confident and compassionate. However it's impossible to actually ever speak with him. It was for me. I would have preferred to have stayed with him but felt like actually speaking to someone was needed
Takes his job seriously and tries to help his patients as best he can.
We've just started counseling and I feel better already. I really like his messages to me. They help me realize things can get better.
Jono is an awesome counselor, he reminds me of Yoda from star wars where he could be summed up into one quote "you must unlearn, what you have learned." He gives you ideas to focus on, encourages you to reflect, and focus on what you felt during that time through worksheets. He takes the time to answer thoughtfully and caters his teaching, counseling, and expertise, to how you learn, to your personality, and to your interests. In this case he recommended a book for me to read, since I had often commented on what I have read in terms of literature, that related to my situation.
This is a man, who knows what he's doing, goes right to the point, helps out with long personal responses, and generally makes me feel good
Jono is a skillful counselor who speaks in compassionate terms and is able to pinpoint issues and ask the right questions to get you started on the right path. He has supplied me with a lot to work on and think about as I continue on my life journey. Thank you Jono Lee!
Jono is very kind and helpful. His techniques helped me and I started to learn ways to cope with things immediately.
Jono Lee is extremely supportive and caring. He treats my concerns with concern and has helped me grow and better understand ways I can realistically improve certain facets of my life. That being said, I feel like some of the exercises/messages he has sent me are repetitive/repeats of previous ones.
I haven't had a video session with Jono yet but through his messages I can see how he addresses my concern and it feels nurturing to be able to talk to somebody like him. I haven't had an online counselor before but I appreciate the worksheets he sends me that addresses what I want to work on so I can practice it. I would recommend Jono to a friend if they were seeking therapy.
Jono was amazing! His guidance throughout my journey was compassionate, safe, and successful. If I needed more time before moving on Jono was patient and extremely kind. I loved his open acceptance of my variability and wise words of forgiveness. I would highly recommend him to friends and family.
Jono is thoughtful and kind. He responds in a timely manner and you can tell that he's very concerned about what you are going through. He's always there to listen and the best part is that he's very encouraging. This is especially important for somebody who is trying out new ways to improve their mental help. I would definitely recommend Jono :)
Jono is very compassionate, warm and insightful. It feels very comfortable and easy to open up and share with him. Always timely in his responses, too!
Jono is an excellent teacher and mentor who guides you in the direction of self discovery towards your goals. He does this in such a neutral and positive stance that allows you to engage with your inner self. He is respectful, kind, supportive, and so understanding. I am grateful to have him as my counselor and share his words of wisdom and guidance. Thanks Jono.
I was skeptical about an online counseling platform but whoever built this technology did it right. Truly impressive. I do most of my communication over the internet and so this saves me time and money without a sacrifice in quality.
Jono Lee helped me through a difficult time a couple of years ago and he is the reason I am back. Love the ability to text my thoughts when it is convenient for me rather than having planned sessions. I love better help.
He is kind, helpful, and always has the patience for me.
Jono Lee has been very helpful for me. He is kind and gentle while still being serious about what can actually be done and finding ways for improvement. He is reasonably fast to respond and provides good information.
Jono was very helpful in so many ways. Our personalities were very different and at the beginning I thought about changing counselors because I didn't feel a connection with him. I am glad I didn't. It took months of hard work but layer by layer I was confronted with deep held beliefs inside of me that were harmful. Jono was able to unpack those layers with grace and empathy. He was always available and I knew that he cared about my overall health. The breakthroughs that have occurred have been monumental in my life, as he has walked me through some of the darkest days of my life thus far. Jono thank you so much, I will never be the same!
Jono is such a wonderful counselor. This is my second time using BetterHelp and I must say that I am extremely happy with Jono and his approach. He understands me and my needs and is great at responding and checking in when I haven't responded. I truly feel that he is there for me and helping me every step of the way. Such a great person and counselor. Thank you Jono for all you do. I am looking forward to continuing to work with you.
I can't express how grateful I am for BetterHelp and in particular, my counselor, Jono. He just understands, supports, and helps keep my mind focused on my goals and aspirations. In times of distress, I can count on Jono to remind me of everything I've already achieved and learned with him. I feel like I'm talking to someone and not just a wall. So again, thank you, Jono, for all that you do!
I've been talking with Jono now for a couple of weeks. I very much appreciate his attention and care he gives to our conversations. I can always tell each response is carefully thought out and with the best intent in mind to help me with the issues I've been facing. I appreciate how understanding and low pressure he is. His approach has been very helpful to me.
Although I have just started communicating with him, I find out that Jono is a reliable, compassionate and persistent counselor. I think his approach is quite unique.
Jono is responsive and caring. Even though we haven't talked much yet, he provided many useful and kind information to me for self-caring. I trust that he is a reliable consultant.
Jono is very kind, gentle, patient and gives people a sense of security.At the beginning, I was eager to pour out all my dissatisfaction and sorrow. Jono listened patiently and helped me sort out the past hurts step by step, guiding me to find out the root of the problem and to think.Besides, he gave me a lot of useful advice. The communication with him made me feel relaxed and happy, and my state was much better than before.Thanks again for meeting Jono, and I will live a good life through my own efforts：）
Jono is very patient, caring and encouraging. Since my situation needs to care urgently that online counseling might not be enough for me, I unfortunately have to cancel for further sessions. Thank you Jono for your help and caring words, which are really heart-warming and kind.
Jono is kind, patient and helpful. He is experienced in finding my problems and provide scientific skills to help me. Thanks a lot to Jono!
Very kind, caring, educated therapist. He understand what position I’m coming from for the most part, I’m looking forward to come up with more.
Jono was very helpful providing me with techniques and different methods for coping and dealing with my stress.
Jono and I worked together for a week while my regular counselor was away on vacation, and I'm very grateful to have been matched with him during this time. Jono has helped me develop a better attitude and means of achieving self-compassion and approaching negative situations. I'm still working on implementing all this, but I have much better building blocks thanks to him!
Jono is extremely helpful and offers a variety of exercises and activities to support your needs. He's a great listener and always provides thoughtful feedback.
My counselor makes me feel like I matter, he gives great advice and tips and I’ve never gotten anymore help from anyone else before.
From the beginning Jono has been bery attentive and supportive. His words helped me from the first day forward, and I feel lucky to have him in my life.
Jono has been very helpful in assisting me to tackle my issues with Anxiety and depression. He is very understanding, nonjudgmental and quick to reply. Would highly recommend him to anyone seeking help with their current challenges. An online forum is advantageous as well since I am often at sea and unable to do in-person counseling.
It has been great to learn new tools to help me with my through my struggles in life. Very kind and considerate, helpful in many ways.
Jono is very professional. He is very polite and considerable. Most importantly, he knows what I'm going through and really helps me out. His words always touch my heart. This is the most successful counseling that I have ever had.
Jono is really helpful and patient, he brought up the exercises to help me find my strengths and positive traits. And helped me find negative cognitives which I never realized before, so now when I feel upset, I will avoid focus on my weakness and get more positive thinking. And I'm working on it.
Jono Lee is an excellent listener. He always responds to messages in a timely manner and offers good insight to those who are struggling emotionally.
Jono takes a compassionate approach with his clients. His expertise in teaching self-care and emotional awareness are evident. Very thankful and happy for Jono's help!
Great practical tools to center/bend thoughts to better coping patterns. Lots of compassion, affirmation and encouragement. Answered my emails within the next day. Thanks millions!
Jono was extremely helpful for me getting a grasp on my situation. His advice to treat myself like a good friend was important for me to hear right now. I am thankful for his help and do believe he can many people. Thanks again.
Jono provided me with assistance in arriving at realizations that have allowed me to find understanding and peace. That assistance was invaluable. He also has provided me with knowledge of tools that I can use to maintain that peace in a sustainable and long lasting way. Knowledge of those tools is also invaluable.
More practically, Jono was always timely with responses and those responses were always compassionate. Those responses always managed to assist without imposing direct advice...which I greatly appreciate. Thank you, Jono.
Jono cares a lot. His approach and the tone of his messages are unique and impactful.
Jono is always supportive, calm and understandable of what's going on. He always provides solutions in every problem I've come across and works with me through it. He extremely timely with his responses too.
Jono Lee is a professional counselor. Through his kindly assistance, I find myself changed in the positive way. Thank you for your help.
Jono help me a lot during my struggles and was really considerate and professional.

Jono is very encouraging, insightful and easy to talk to. He is very helpful and responsive -

Jono is very patient, wise, compassionate, and eloquent. He did his best to work with me even though I was not very responsive and ready to do the work with him. I still gained from his insights. Responds promptly.
Jono is very caring and thorough with follow up, suggestions and information.
Jono is kind and supportive!
Jono has been very insightful and has helped me deal with many different challenges I'm facing in both my work and personal life. I'd highly recommend Jono.
Jono Lee has been the only counselor who has understood from day one exactly what I need to work on. The information is so valuable that I like to read it over and over again. It is very interesting. Jono has the knowledge and tools that are essential in life. We aren't taught these skills as we grow up for one reason or another. This is why I am very thankful for Jono to teach me these skills. Thank you Jono.
I am thankful that I tried to seek counseling wth BetterHelp. Especially to my counselor Jono Lee, he treats my statements fairly and guides me to find solutions to my problems step by step. He made some activities for me that helps me have a clear picture of the situation before making a decision. Thank you Jono Lee and BetterHelp.
Jono Lee offered great insight!
Jono is such an amazingly patient person, his heart is so full of love and concern it was a huge eye opener for me just to know someone like this actually exists. He was so easy to talk to, it felt like I was complaining to a wise friend the entire time. He responds consistently and even checked in on me when I got too busy. After years and years of feeling like my entire being was rotting from the inside, I finally feel like myself again. Thank you, Jono, I will always remember what you did for me! <3
Jono always wrote very thoughtful words that were very kind, nonjudgmental, caring, and gentle. Online therapy for me was a great starting point for me, since I had never shared my life or struggles with anyone before, so it was a great opportunity to start the process of healing. Thank you
I have found Jono's words to be what I needed. He is understanding, compassionate and has great attention to detail.
Jono Lee is a very knowledgeable counselor who offers exceptional advice coupled with exercises you can do to put your new knowledge into practice. He always responds quickly and makes me feel like I am his only and most important client, which is very hard to do over the internet. He speaks to me with compassion and understanding and is quick to offer solutions to any issue or problem I may be facing. I plan on having Jono Lee as my counselor for a long time. Counselors like him are hard to find. I am happy to have him in my cheering section.
A good listiner, advisor, and great at offering a few therapeutic techniques when applicable. I am very thankful for his help! I feel glad and assured thanks to his service.
Jono has been incredibly patient and helpful. In dark times, he has been a light, and his words are always kind and understanding. You really helped me and thank you so much for all your insightful and uplifting messages.
Jono is very kind and gentle. I appreciate the words of wisdom that he shares. Sometimes he could be more available -- video conferencing, for instance, isn't convenient -- but he makes up for that with his caring and insight.
He is amazing. He became one of my dearest friend. Before counseling , I was lost and desperate. He encouraged me. He helped me and taught me a lot of new things. Sometime when I needed more than counselor, he became one of my friend. He listened to me. He lighted my way. I'm glad to meet with him. It is such a gift. I recommend this platform to everybody who are seeking for better help. Thank you Jono. Thank you BetterHelp.
Jono has been patient and kind with his words. He has been trying to help me look at the world from a different angle.

At a very turbulent time in my life it was great to have Jono there to talk to and get advice from. I was very lucky to have been placed with a counselor of his caliber.
Jono has been great and consistent. He has really helped me.
I have only worked with Jono for a very short while but he has been very responsive and understanding. He does not give up even when I feel like we are walking in circles and he has to keep reinforcing the same principles time after time. Very patient. I look forward to continuing our work together.
Very quick responses. Though we are engaging from miles away I do feel comforted by his words. He doesn't pass judgement and is very considerate with what he has to say. It's nice.

But at the same time,
Provide insight through beautiful story,

He give me huge benefit
In shorter time and shorter encounter than other therapist ever done to me.
Jono has been wonderful to work with. He has been so helpful in his guidance - his compassion and knowledge have proven to be a catalyst for self growth, acceptance and change.
He is a profound individual that bases each occasion on a deeper level that makes the patient really reflect and understand and begin to recuperate regarding whatever that has been plaguing them. Definitely an A+ to me.
Jono is incredibly kind and supportive!
Jono has been extremely helpful. He is patient and does seem to genuinely care. I can comfortably share my struggles with him.
