Jon serves as the Program Director at Soul Care Counseling at Bridgeway Christian Church in Roseville, CA. He received his pastoral and psychotherapy education at Western Seminary (M.Div., M.A.), and has served as an adjunct professor of Spiritual Formation at Western. Jon has been a licensed psychotherapist in private practice for 14 years and served in pastoral ministry for 12 years prior to becoming a therapist.
Jon has been offering spiritual direction and care for 20 years. He works with pastors and ministry leaders looking for spiritual direction and support as they navigate burnout, addiction, and difficulties in relationships. Another aspect of soul shepherding Jon enjoys is providing spiritual direction for executive leaders and entrepreneurs looking to explore their vocational life as part of their spiritual journey.
His connection to Soul Shepherding was through the influential teachings and spiritual formation influences of Dallas Willard and his wife Jane. Anyone in the spiritual care stream of Dallas and Jane is someone Jon seeks to connect and collaborate with. Naturally, for him, Soul Shepherding feels like home.
Jon and his wife Amy live in Fair Oaks, CA.
