Jonathan Bannigan, LMHC

Therapy is a place where you can safely explore the difference between the life you want to live and the life you have. My approach is kind and thoughtful, but I do not shy away from directness. I specialize in helping motivated individuals who are interested in looking at old problems in new ways. Together, we’ll work toward you overcoming repetitive patterns of less-than-effective coping and practicing new behaviors that actually work. If you’re looking to feel more empowered and be more responsible for your life rather than see yourself as a victim of life and circumstance, then we can do meaningful and life-changing therapy.
My therapeutic style is eclectic and I draw from psychodynamic theory and control-mastery theory to help you with issues related to anxiety, depression, stress, grief, relationship dysfunction, and trauma.
At Peaceful Way Psychology, we believe that high quality therapy should be easily accessible to everyone. Therefore, when it comes to insurance, we do all the work for you—we check your benefits, submit your claims, and advocate for higher reimbursement rates on your behalf. Call or email my office to schedule an appointment, or if you have any questions.

Patient Testimonials

I had a wonderful experience at Peaceful Way. The matching process paired me with a therapist that had expertise in my initial areas that I wanted to address and had experience in areas that I grew to explore throughout my time with Jonathan. I created a strong relationship with Jonathan, who helped me achieve my personal goals beyond what I thought possible. Without him, I would not be where I am today. His approach, thoughtfulness, support, and accountability allowed me to achieve things that I never thought possible.

The office at PWC is also top notch – they would contact insurance on my behalf, call and email me to make me aware of any changes, ask for consent before any changes to billing and were proactive in their approach. For anyone looking for a therapist, PWP has some of the best in the business and has a top-tier operation. I would recommend PWP to my friends and family and would not hesitate to return myself.

The Lessons Of Autumn

There is a maple tree in the backyard that I have been admiring for weeks now. It is a verdant and bushy tree during the spring and summer months, but autumn has set it spectacularly ablaze.  At first, the maple combusted in a brilliant, ruby-red conflagration. I oohed and aahed,…
