We are souls having our human experience is a life philosophy I've come to accept as a reality of my daily existence. I see my life as Jonathan as a vehicle I've chosen to grow through that contains all the conditions that challenge me to grow. Whether they're physical, mental, emotional, relational, or otherwise, all my conditions are meant to draw from me my greatest potential. My family and friends, acquaintances and strangers, are souls here to participate in my growth as I do in theirs. Those who challenge me and feel oppositional to my life are my dearest allies fulfilling their specific roles. When I focus on the intention we had set for their presence in my life I come to see their value, and find meaning and forgiveness.
I've had a private practice in Newton, MA, specializing in clinical and spiritual regression hypnosis & therapy since 2005.

In 1993, a beloved uncle of mine dying from cancer asked me the most profound question of my life, "Is this it?" I'm born, live, die, and fade to black? IS THIS IT?" I was thirty-one at the time and in-between careers as I was dealing with my own existential crisis of questioning the life worth living. My response to my uncle in that moment came more through me than from me when I said, "You know Uncle Ricky, if we're born, live, die, and fade to black, and there is NOTHING after . . . then I'm gonna live this life on the beach in the Caribbean, and I'm gonna have fun, fun, fun all the way to darkness."
My uncle and I laughed at the absurdity of that truth. If we're nothing more than our mortal selves then it's all about seeking pleasure and avoiding pain in life. If there's nothing more after my brain expires then Caribbean here I come. My uncle set me on my path that day.
My work reflects what I've found.
