About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. I have been practicing psychotherapy for over 5 years. The population that I have primarily worked with people severe and persistent mental illness. I have spent most of my career working with this population in different compacities from intensive residential treatment facilities, crisis services, day treatment and community support. I have completed the Duluth Model on Domestic Abuse. I have experience working with people with trauma and assisting them processing their trauma and how it affects their lives.

I focus on using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to assist the people I work with. I have experience in trauma informed care. I am a warm caring person, and it shows in my work. I enjoy finding what motivates people to change and being that person’s biggest cheerlead and as they work on themselves.

I enjoy hearing people’s stories and helping them meet the goals they set for themselves.

JonPaul was great. He listed to my issues and gave me great advice. The reason for leaving this service was because of scheduling.

I was always afraid to start therapy and find a therapist because I heard it took a few tries to find a good match but Better Help matched me perfectly with an amazing therapist. I feel so comfortable talking to him about anything and he always has the best advice. I’ve recommended Better Help to all of my friends and family and I always brag about how good my therapist is. JonPaul has offered so much help and I’ve personally seen a big difference with me in only the past few months. Thank you JonPaul.

JonPaul is a very good listener. Not judgmental. A great person to have my first experience with.

JonPaul is a great listener. I can tell he makes a lot of time in his busy days to care individually about my sessions, concerns, and progress. He gives me the affirmations I need & gets real with me when I’m kidding myself.

After just a couple months I am already seeing noticeable improvements in my mental health & wellbeing, as well as these improvements reflecting in my personal relationships. I owe so much of this to JonPaul.
I'm grateful to have been paired with a professional, intelligent, nurturing & motivating therapist. I honestly look forward to our sessions & end each of them feeling empowered & supported .

Thank you for always being non-judgemental, transparent & encouraging of my growth, JonPaul.

I was hesistant at first to try therapy. But after having my first session with JonPaul, I felt more relaxed. He was a patient listener, his responses to my situation were very thoughtful and encouraging. It is a pleasure to have him as a counselor.

JonPaul is a versatile therapist; he was able to relate and communicate to me despite having different backgrounds and experiences. He clearly knows what he’s doing; he is careful with his messages but makes sure that he gets a relative message across the conversation. A short session or a message from him gives me relief with what I am going through. It makes things seem easier and bearable, that I instantly think that there is a solution to my every problem. If I could personally thank him for his work, I would do so. I’m impressed with his work.
