Jon draws from Contemporary Psychoanalytic and Attachment Theory(s) to help individuals better understand themselves at a deeper level and how their past experiences influence their current relationships. As the therapy deepens, he finds the therapeutic relationship grows and individuals begin to find relief from emotional distress, improve personal relationships, develop insight into observed behavioral patterns and symptoms, and address concerns that initially brought them to see him.
Jon is a classically trained chef turned therapist, bringing a great deal of personal and professional experience of the arts into his practice. He graduated from culinary school at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas with an Associates of Applied Science after completing two years of apprenticeship under James Beard Award-winning chef, Celina Tio.
Jon completed his undergraduate and graduate studies at MNU, earning a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degree (with honors) in Counseling. During graduate school he completed a two year fellowship of Psychoanalytic Thought through The Greater Kansas City Psychoanalytic Institute while working under Jessica Almond, Psychoanalyst and Licensed Professional Counselor.
Jon continues to dedicate himself to advanced post-graduate training through research and clinical work. In January 2021, he will pursue additional training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy through The William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, and Psychology located in New York City.
