Professional statement

Jonathan Getz is a Licensed Professional Counselor from the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania. He specializes in working with people from adolescents to adults who struggle with emotional regulation. He has a lot of success helping individuals and families cope with anxiety, anger, and depression issues. Jonathan has extensive experience with school-age clients and their families and focuses on normalizing the student’s experience while helping the family support that student. While emotions are the focus of most people seeking therapy, Jonathan also likes to look at the client’s self-esteem, future goals, and resources.

Jonathan’s approach is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, an evidence-based approach that focuses on helping clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected so that they can begin to make a targeted change.

Jonathan’s main focus is to give the client their sense of self-control back. Along with hope and a better focus on their future, clients will begin to have confidence in their abilities to make smart choices and achieve better outcomes. Jonathan is focused on building a great rapport where each client feels comfortable and in control of their treatment. Everyone is respected as an individual with blessings and strengths that should be appreciated.

Jonathan has spent the past 20 years as a teacher, coach, husband, and father. He has found his passion is helping people accel towards their goals in school, work, relationships, and sports. He continues to grow every day from the experiences he has with his clients and appreciates all that this profession provides him.

Jonathan is sensitive to the world in the middle of a pandemic and offers several choices for remote teletherapy. He looks forward to engaging with you and finding a path towards your future goals.


Message to clients

I find therapy is an amazing tool for self-growth. I have used it in my own life to advance my understanding of my own relationship with my father who had just passed away from cancer. I have used it when life has become too stressful to hold inside myself and I didn’t want to burden my loved ones who may have been too close to the problems I have wanted to discuss. Most of all I have used therapy to find someone with an objective and educated view of how to improve upon life.

I encourage you to reach out to a therapist whose profile speaks to you. You are the most important person in the room during therapy. No one knows what you are going through but you. You need to find someone you can open up to, who you find encourages you to be an active participant in your future, and one who makes you feel safe. Maybe I can be that person. Maybe I am not. I keep an open mind about your search for a match and will encourage you to continue looking if you find that I do not fit what you are looking for.

I wish you the best in this personal search for self-improvement. I encourage you to never stop on this journey because the journey will be much more impactful than the destination.
