Jonathan Kelly

My Philosophy: Jonathan wholeheartedly believes in the power of DBT to decrease suffering and help clients move towards a life worth living.

Working With Me: With clients, Jonathan strives to take an in-depth look at recurrent behavior patterns, explore their origins, and discover how to break free of them. With compassion, and the use of DBT skills, Jonathan seeks to guide clients to a life free of suffering.

More About Me: During the first year of his doctoral program in Neuroscience, three of Jonathans colleagues were hospitalized due to suicidal behavior. Each one was treated with Intensive Outpatient DBT. John witnessed firsthand their rapid transformation and improvement. Seeing the positive impact that therapy had on his peers inspired him to change career paths, leading him to pursue a career in mental health counseling.
