About Jonathan Kaufman

I was born with a right hemi-paresis, a form of Cerebral Palsy. Having a disability has been a profound part of my personal, academic, and professional life. From hiking in the Ecuadorian highlands with my family, skiing down a mountain, and repelling down the side of a cliff in the Middle East, to the simplicity of tying my own shoes one-handed, I have pushed the idea that anything is possible if given the will. Embracing my own disability has given me greater insight into dealing with the challenges of everyday life and learning how to adapt in creative ways to find greater success no matter how big or small. Having a disability has been a gift for me because it has provided me with my calling to help others find the solutions they need to create a more fulfilling and richer life. As a psychotherapist I work with a wide variety of clients who are interested in creating a better life for themselves. I also have two areas of focus in my work. The first is working with individuals, families, and couples who are dealing with the daily challenges and struggles of living with disabilities. The second is in the area of corporate health and wellness, working with clients who are anywhere from C-Level executives down the ladder in areas of work/life balance, stress management, job design issues, and a host of other concerns dealing with workplace issues. My approach is to create a warm and comfortable environment for clients. The fundamental goal is to help clients on their journey to better themselves and continue to grow as individuals. Building on my anthropological background I utilize a variety of eclectic modalities from psychodynamic, motivational interviewing, CBT, logotherapy, and beyond.
