Jonathan Kirkendall MA LPC


From the very beginning of my career in counseling, I’ve had a deep interest in helping my clients create a lifestyle that encourages wellness and in helping those clients learn tools that will enable them to take control of their own health and their own lives.

I have over 20 years experience working with people struggling with :

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Trauma
  • Grief
  • Life transitions

In addition to my counseling training and experience, I utilize expertise in the following areas to assist my clients:

  • Weight loss
  • Nutrition
  • Supplementation
  • Exercise
  • Meditation
  • Implementing lifestyle changes

What Clients Say:

I found Jonathan at a time in my life when I needed it the most.

What makes Jonathan a unique and standout mental health professional is that he is simultaneously a peer and a professional, and he walks this fine line with magnificence.

That is what allowed me to open up for the first time as a driven, busy professional: the opportunity to feel heard and be understood -- with no judgement or uncomfortable pauses.

Sessions with Jonathan feel very personal, relaxing and safe, and when you find someone you have an easy connection to -- like seeing an old friend every time you meet -- it makes all the difference.

I am interested in how a healthy body helps stabilize our minds. I’m interested in helping you overcome challenges to good nutrition and to regular exercise in order to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression, and to increase feelings of wellbeing. I’m interested in learning from you what “healthy” means, working together to establish long-term and incremental goals to reach and maintain your definition of healthy, and helping you reach those goals. To do this, I work to address issues of wellness within the context of mental health issues, not in spite of them.

Through the Gene SNP DNA Analysis, I can provide you with valuable information about gene expression and its impact on factors like diet, exercise, and mental health, enabling us to work together to customize a plan that works for you.

Stay in touch.
