“Jon has had, and continues to have, the most profound impact on my life. He’s empowered me to believe in myself- both my internal and physical self- he’s empowered me to speak up, find my voice, and advocate for myself at work… and he’s challenged me when I down play myself, knowing that I was/am worth more than the credit I give myself.

To me, an ideal coach looks like someone who I know will be honest and upfront with me. Someone who will support me and make me feel heard and loved, and push me to be my best self- in every area of my life. So, what I appreciate most from our time together is his honesty and warmth… he’s genuine, and he gives and speaks the truth (even when it’s hard!). He’s helped me develop greater self love and belief in myself. I’ve taken away a stronger sense of confidence than I’ve ever had before… He pushes me to be my best self, and works with me through my doubts and fears. He has helped me to feel powerful and to conquer and let go of my fears by creating tangible plans and steps to help me physically overcome them.

After a conversation with Jon, I feel light, warm, powerful, happy, strong, and good about myself. I feel grateful to know him. He is always going to meet you at face value. He speaks the truth, and he shares his truth. He’s the most patient person I know. If you’re considering working with him, be willing to tell him anything. He doesn’t judge, he loves you, accepts you, and validates your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. He puts you at ease and makes speaking with him so comfortable.

I have had so many “aha” moments especially when it comes to my work. Whenever I struggle with work and we talk through it, he helps me to shift my perspective about what I’m feeling, and then reflect back on all the good that I’m doing. He helps me see the positive when I’m focused on the negative. He helps me lean into how I can shape my thoughts into actions and figure out how to accomplish situations at work… it’s usually because I’m not being direct enough, and he helps me seek that out and figure out the ‘why’ behind what I’m feeling. It’s shaped the way I think because it helps me get to the root of my issues, and reflect deeply on why I feel that way, and how I can reframe it in a more positive approach.”

Jon has had a *significant* impact on my life. One of my favorite things about Jon is that he practices what he preaches. He leads by example and that’s something extremely important to me as a coach. I also deeply appreciate how present he is—both inside and outside of coaching! Through his presence, he creates containers for people to express themselves freely and without judgment. Every conversation with Jon is enlightening and reflective. Since meeting him, he’s always held space for me with a curious and reflective mind—naturally guiding me to my own answers through a series of carefully curated questions. His natural curiosity showed me ways I could become curious about myself and the obstacles in my life, in time developing similar methods to carry on within myself and utilize as tools along my journey. He’s a great teacher, always open to feedback, and is great at connecting dots and noticing themes that I might either not notice or choose to overlook. There was no hiding things from him.. But at the same time, why would I? Working with Jon was choosing to show up as vulnerable as I could to truly allow him to help and guide me toward my limiting beliefs and areas that needed healing and attention. He has a very positive and gentle, yet firm demeanor—he would tell me hard truths and give me tools to help me remember who I was when I’d forget. He taught me lots of habits and techniques that helped shift my thought/behavior patterns and limiting beliefs. Our entire coaching relationship has consistently aided me in creating clarity for various parts of my life and taking large leaps forward. To get the most out of your coaching sessions with Jon, be ready to show up for yourself 1000%, and don’t hold back!!!

Incredible coach, mentor, and friend. Prior to working with Jon, I was lost, afraid, confused, experiencing depression and anxiety, and uncertain of where I was going next. I had an idea of what I wanted to do with my life, but it felt vague and unobtainable. Jon helped me dramatically in shifting my perspective, figuring out what my purpose is in life and how to attain it. Jon provided me with concrete tools and questions that allowed me to dig deep into reflection and introspection, harness and realize my gifts, and work towards sharing these gifts with the world in an extremely proactive way. I now know that I too am on my path toward becoming a life coach. So much of what he helped me with was shifting my perspective. Seeing all the pain I have experienced in the world as a gift, to help me grow, transform, change, and become the best possible version of myself. To show up 100%, live by my values, forgive and love myself. If one is ready to do the work every day for themselves, working with Jon will most definitely be a life-changing experience as it has been for me. I couldn’t imagine what my life would be like without him. Whatever goal, obstacle, or problem that an individual has, I have no doubt in my mind that Jon can help figure out a way for that individual to overcome and solve that problem and ultimately become more whole. Thank you so much, Jon. Love you brother.

A couple years ago I had the pleasure of working with Jon. He managed me as a creative and supported me like no other. I remember the night we talked about my project (this was before we agreed to working together), his eyes had lightened up, he was completely tuned in, absorbing every little thing I had to say about the far off vision I had for my career.

I can easily say that his nurturing personality and genuine fierce loyalty to seeing me grow was one of the key foundations that held me together during my initial years in Los Angeles. They say that the best of managers are like parents, and I wholeheartedly can say that Jon was just that and even more. He deeply commits to the people he believes in, especially when their faith begins to waver – I can hear his voice questioning the fear and patiently pulling me out of those momentary, yet internalized lies.

He has been that voice of reason when good ol’ doubt comes knocking and always that late night call when you don’t know what else to do.

I truly look up to him as someone that has understood adversity in so many layers, and has single handedly pulled himself out of the deepest of waters. His spirit to continue, and audacious need to question the negative is what makes Jon the friend that helps you find your next chapter.
