Jonathan Levley, QMHP          He/Him

Jonathan is a Professional Counselor Associate who graduated with his Master of Science in Psychology from Palo Alto University, Pacific Graduate School of Psychology in 2019.  


Before joining the team at the PATH Center as a therapist, Jonathan had significant experience in research.  He worked as an undergraduate research assistant for the UC Irvine, School of Medicine, Traumatic Stress Program examining the interplay of attachment and trauma, psychiatric interventions, and brain imaging.  In graduate school, he participated in research groups that focused on self-help, computerized interventions, and personalized psychotherapy treatment algorithms.    


After seeing the shortcomings of relying solely on here-and-now therapy for a variety of mental health concerns (e.g., depression, anxiety, anger, focus and attention, intrusive thoughts, compulsions, relationship problems, addictions, eating disorders, sleep problems, etc.), Jonathan was convinced that many of these symptoms originate from early attachment and stressful events.  He found that revisiting these early life experiences helps people develop more adaptive emotional and cognitive responses to present-day stressors.  


Jonathan specializes in the evidence-based therapies of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Lifespan Integration (LI), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for ages 14 and older.  Most of his clients enjoy the eclectic elements of these therapies, ranging from mind-body awareness, insightfulness, brief exposure, identity, the unconscious, and practical problem solving.  His approach is a combination of humor and lightheartedness alongside patience and straight-forwardness. 


In his spare time, Jonathan enjoys spending time with his partner, pup, family and friends, listening to audiobooks, keeping up with the news, making whole-food plant-based meals, being physically active, and attempting to forage for mushrooms.
