Jonathan Papas, M.A., L.M.F.T.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
Hello, my name is Jonathan Pappas. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist at The Circle of Life Counseling Center. A little about me, I received my BA in Psychology from the University of Massachusetts in 2007, and completed my Masters in Counseling Psychology from Argosy University Los Angeles in 2011. The majority of my internship hours were done working with at risk youth in Ventura County. I specialize in the field of child counseling with a focus on family systems and am currently working with adolescents struggling with mental disorders and substance abuse. In the past, I have worked and counseled at drug and alcohol programs in both Malibu and Ventura, CA. For the last two years, before moving back to Ventura county, I was living near the city of San Luis Obispo. Throughout that time, I worked with adults in the community suffering from different psychotic disorders. Through my training, I have gained valuable knowledge and experience in the field of addiction, child/adolescent and adult psychology. I am passionate about the work I do helping others. I get a great deal of satisfaction from engaging with and empowering individuals to connect with themselves and others, to work towards creating the life they envision, one that is both meaningful and satisfying.
