About Me - Jon Mozenter
"Meaninglessness inhibits fullness of life and is therefore equivalent to illness. Meaning makes a great many things endurable - perhaps everything" - Carl Jung
I consider it an honor and a privilege to be a therapist and a facilitator for people's growth and healing. Therapy affords the participant an opportunity to engage a range of life's challenges with a curious eye and in a safe and nurturing environment. I value psychotherapy as a collaboratively creative process and hope to inspire that same attitude in whomever I work with.
I employ an integrated mind-body and relationship-focused approach that is creative and nurturing. Mind-body therapy stresses the connection between psychological symptoms and the body through attention to breathing, relaxation, and imaging techniques. Relationship dynamics demand attention so that individuals can resolve conflicts and find necessary support. I also utilize cognitive-behavioral therapy to treat a range of anxiety problems, including trauma, focusing on the distinctions between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Addiction or Substance Use treatment employs all of the above approaches and focuses on both underlying needs and supporting behavioral change.
I have a previous background in the creative arts and am uniquely qualified to work with creative types. In particular, I have had a great deal of experience working with adults with substance use/addiction issue and young adults and teens struggling with anxiety, self-esteem and identity issues. I also specialize working with men on relationship and stress-management issues and with couples on intimacy issues and parenting issues. I am nearly fluent in Spanish as well.
