Across all of his work, Jon brings warmth, understanding, and patience…plus a healthy dose of humor! In his more than 30 years of experience as a therapist and presenter, clients and audiences have felt comforted by his ability to acknowledge that the challenges they face are complex – and often downright exhausting! In support of this, his work is grounded in delivering tools that can be implemented in real time. Jon’s most requested presentations are: “The Secret Lives of Teens and Tweens”, “Let’s Talk About The “A” Word” (Anxiety), and “QPR Suicide Prevention”. In addition, Jon has created many presentations in the past two years including “Teen, Tweens, and Quarantines”, and “Resilience Required: Supporting Student Mental Health”, and “Understanding our new norms and supporting our own and others’ mental health in the COVID era”.
Jon holds a BA from Clark University, and an MS in Counseling from the University of Hartford. He was the director of mental health centers in Massachusetts in Stoughton and in Needham from 1993 – 2017, and has operated his practice to offer presentations, consultations, and consulting services for 25 years.
Jon has been the Clinical Director for the New England region of Minding Your Mind since 2017. He creates up-to-date and engaging presentations for parents and caregivers, school personnel, community groups, municipal employees, corporations, and speaks at conferences, summer camps, and any other group that wants to support youth mental health. Jon also supports Minding Your Mind’s speakers in the Changing Minds: Stories over Stigma program.
