Jon Parker, LAPC

Therapist & Life Coach


"I believe that people should seek counsel when life is going as expected and in times of emotional and psychological distress. Many times problems are obvious and on other occasions they are not.  Counseling allows for us to work through our blind spots, it helps us to improve or maintain good mental and spiritual health, and it helps us heal. How can I help you?"
