About Me

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.

Sincerely,
Jono
