This review has been some time coming, for the one and only one reason. I wanted to say how I feel perfectly. Jonathan is more than amazing. We all have problems, and I felt mine were no worse or better than anyone else's and I just needed to deal with it. Then past traumas started to get to me. I sought out therapy, my last resort to be whole again. I met Jonathan on Halloween (my favorite Holiday), he was dressed up as a King, looked like he was ready for a Burger King commercial! I loved it. Then in his office, I could feel myself wanting to clam up, I didn't want to be judged, or committed (it was a real fear). I answered questions and Jonathan was like that best friend from high school, I think at times he has a hard time shutting me up now. But he is so easy to talk to, I don't feel like he is diagnosing me with mental disorders (but he probably should, smile emoticon ), I don't feel like he psychoanalyzing me, or thinking less of me for my problems. He just listens, asks sincere questions and gives advice, insight, and helps you see other perspectives. Now sometimes I need another perspective, as we all do, I can get tunnel vision and can not honestly see what the heck is wrong with people. Jonathan helps bring out that understanding side of me, like he knows me too well, he takes me from absolute anger. [Which by the way I have learned there is no such thing as absolute anger, it comes from a deeper emotion. Right Jonathan!!? smile emoticon ] and he can get me to be sensitive to others and why they are acting toward me as they do. His talent and understanding and friendship has extended to my family. He has helped my husband and I through some very dark and trying times. I have imagine Jonathan after we leave, just needing a snickers and a nap!! But he has never made us feel like a burden or anything more than the best friend, always there to lend an ear and give us some very knowledgeable advice. And I hope he knows how much his therapy has done for us and meant to me. I have been sadly suicidal through the last few years, and quite literally would not be here if it were not for Jonathan and his thoughtful and caring words of encouragement and firm but understanding talks. He will tell you how it is, and make you realize you are loved and are worth being loved. If you want someone to tell you, you are perfect and it will all just be ok, go somewhere else. But if you want someone to listen and help you figure out what is wrong and how to fix it.. Jonathan Decker is the man! Everyday his words influence me and my husband. We are stronger, closer and better people thanks to Jonathan and what he helped us do for ourselves. That is a true genius of a therapist, someone that helps you realize how you become the best you can be. #welovejonathandecker
