How did I begin the journey?
Jon joined Alongside You in Ladner in the fall of 2016. Andrew has been a friend of his since grad school and they have worked together on projects in the past. He appreciates Andrew’s commitment to excellence and believes in his mission to provide high-quality psychological services to the community.
How can I help YOU?
In today’s fast-paced world, everyone encounters problems. Some are relatively benign and easily solved, while others seem to persist or worsen. Some problems seem to continue, perhaps in various forms, for many, many years.
Unaddressed, symptoms develop that erect barriers to the life once imagined and hoped for. Ambition to realize dreams and goals have eroded and they now seem so far out of reach. Sometimes it’s difficult to determine where things have gone off track. Energy expended seems wasted when it’s having little positive effect.
Perhaps it’s time to take a break from spinning wheels – a sojourn – to reflect, reevaluate, and reorganize with someone trained to help identify root issues and find the way back to the path once envisioned.
It may be that a relationship, at one time passionate and energizing, has become stale or a source of stress. We’d like to help investigate where it got stuck and assist in rebuilding meaningful connection.
Perhaps somewhere along the way, a mole-hill has turned into a mountain resulting in anxiety or depression or post-traumatic stress symptoms. We can help address both the psychological and neurological foundations of the problem.
Jon works in collaboration with his clients to find the best method to address problems. His therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients successfully overcome personal life challenges. He integrates complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, he works with each individual to help build on strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
Why is Alongside You different from other agencies in Ladner and North Delta?
Jon believes all humans have intrinsic worth and therefore consider respect and acceptance among values most important. He loves to see people open to the richness of a fulfilling and purposeful life.
Jon loves how Andrew brings an energy to his work that is infectious and inspiring.
What is Jon like outside of work?
Jon loves to travel, read, surf, play hockey, exercise, play strategy board games, and go out for dinner with friends.
If Jon did not pursue the career path he has right now, he would likely be in some other people-helping profession, possibly working in some forgotten corner of the planet.
