Jason Thompson graduated with honors from Harvard University with a Bachelors in Social Science and holds a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from The California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University. Jason serves on the board of directors for the Glendale Area Mental Health Professionals Association as the Social Media Chair. He believes that no two people are the same and there is no one size fits all solution to life’s challenges. Jason works with clients to create a personal plan to overcome whatever issues they are facing. He works with current or past trauma as well as anxiety, phobias, depression, self-esteem issues or feelings of disconnectedness. Jason employs therapeutic techniques that have helped his clients quickly move from a place of chaos or confusion to a life under control headed in the direction the client desires. He is trained in traditional modes of therapy such as Experiential, Solution Focused, and Narrative as well as Internal Family Systems, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and The Matrix Model of Recovery.
Despite his current successes and prestigious education, Thompson wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Born in Medford, Oregon he spent most of his childhood moving place to place throughout the Western United States with his family. He was 16 years old before he finished a full year of education in the same school. Prior to embarking on his own entrepreneurial adventures and eventually becoming a psychotherapist, he worked in multiple fields including international operations, marketing and threat assessment for government and private sectors. He has been named an Honorary Marine by the United States Marine Corp.
