Jonathan Bannigan, LMHC

I strive to create a safe, comfortable, and supportive environment for individuals who are confronting issues related to adjustment, anxiety, depression, grief, stress, relationships, and trauma. I specialize in helping individuals who find themselves caught in repetitive patterns of less-than-effective coping and bewildering self-defeat.

My approach to therapy is primarily psychodynamic. I will guide and support you every step of the way as, together, we generate insight into the basic structure of your personality, identify and push past defenses, and achieve lasting and deeply rooted change. Our work together could integrate elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness-based therapies, depending upon your individual needs.

I understand how difficult it can be to pick up the phone and make an appointment with a counselor or therapist. But if you have reached a point in your life where you are simply willing to release old hurts and relinquish counterproductive patterns, you already have everything you need to make a good start. Call or message today to schedule a phone consultation or appointment.

For many, the holiday season is a time of rejoicing with friends, family, and other loved ones. But while we celebrate for many of us there will be painful reminders of loved ones who have died.  Grief has a particular intensity at this time of year. It is possible, however,…

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,…
