Jonathan was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec. As a young adult, serving alongside his father in an Italian/English speaking congregation, Jonathan began to observe the pressures placed on families in vocational ministry. After years of working in the mental health field Jonathan began his own clinical practice in 2020, Foundations Counseling & Consulting, to communicate the belief that lives may be lived in a variety of ways but any life worth living starts with a solid foundation and that foundation is faith in Jesus Christ. In addition to his own private practice Jonathan works at Focus on the Family as a marriage intensive therapist leading private intensives and group intensives. Jonathan is a licensed minister and served as a worship leader and pastoral care minister for many years in churches in Missouri and Massachusetts. Jonathan met his wife Dusty in college, they've been married for 25 years and have 4 children.
