Professional statement

Jonah Mishaan is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor, holding a Master’s in Psychology. With a deep-seated passion for facilitating profound transformation and self-discovery, his therapeutic approach goes beyond surface-level problem-solving.

Rather than relying on conventional models of information dissemination or behavior modification, Jonah's methodology centers on unlocking your inherent growth potential as an individual. He doesn't view his role as one of providing mere education or solutions; instead, he is dedicated to helping you gain a profound understanding of the intricate ways you've learned to relate to yourself, others, and the world around you.

Jonah's therapeutic expertise extends to individuals grappling with addiction, trauma, and young adults navigating the complex transitions of emerging adulthood. However, what truly sets him apart is his unwavering enthusiasm for forging authentic connections with the genuine humanity of every individual he has the privilege of working with, regardless of their background or condition.

Specializing in guiding clients through life transitions, addressing addiction and trauma, and offering support in psychedelic integration, Jonah empowers clients to create meaning and liberate themselves from negative patterns within a collaborative therapeutic relationship. His emphasis on nurturing creativity paves the way for enduring change, ultimately leading to a more enriched and fulfilled life for those who embark on this transformative journey with him.


Message to clients

In my practice, I embrace the power of the therapeutic relationship as a gateway to profound self-discovery and personal growth. My approach is rooted in the belief that the way we connect with others and ourselves is central to our well-being. I understand that your struggles and aspirations are deeply personal and unique to you.

Together, we will embark on a journey to unravel the intricate patterns of how you relate to the world around you and within yourself. Through understanding and exploration, we will create space for fresh perspectives to emerge. This process is your path to newfound freedom – the freedom to shape the life you aspire to lead.

I extend to you a warm invitation to join me on this transformative journey. Let's work hand in hand to unlock your truest aspirations and create a life that resonates with your deepest self. Your potential for growth and self-discovery is boundless, and I am here to support you every step of the way.
