Introduction: LOCATED IN ATLANTA, GA Hi! I'm Jon, and my motto is simple: You can get there from here! Located in the Atlanta area, offering individual counseling, premarital counseling, marriage and relationship counseling, and forgiveness coaching, I have 20 years of pastoral counseling, lay counseling and coaching experience. I help my clients work through challenges by deepening their awareness and giving them concrete tools. My goal is to help others improve quickly, rather than have them stay in therapy for years! I counsel and coach my clients in a way that utilizes both their heads and their hearts. I first learned about coaching when I hit a roadblock in my own life and was struggling to move past it. The techniques I developed were so successful that friends and family began asking me for help with their own challenges. This motivated me to turn my newfound passion into a career. As a result, I'm always looking for ways to get to the core underlying issues and empower my clients with the skills they need to succeed. I especially enjoy helping individuals, couples and families work through challenging dynamics. In marriage and relationship counseling and coaching, I enable spouses to voice their thoughts and feelings to one another in a safe coached environment. I consider it a privilege to help people with some of the most personal parts of their lives. It always amazes me how after just a few sessions, I have been entrusted with information which my clients have not shared with their closest friends and family over the course of their entire lives. If you have any questions about my methods, or would like to schedule a consultation, please get in touch today. I accept self-pay clients only at this time.

Therapy and Counseling

Jon provides a safe place to discuss your unfiltered feelings in a non-judgmental environment. He not only made me feel comfortable, but my partner as well. We look forward to using the tools and sound strategies he is providing to build a stronger relationship.

Marriage and Relationship Counseling

As with many people new to counseling, I was very skeptical. Without any reservation I can now say that having a counselor has been exactly what our marriage needed. John McKinney has been great to work with! He is knowledgeable and practical. John has taught us how to listen and better understand each other. He has a unique way of balancing accountability on both sides and helped us to meet in the middle. Marriage is not easy, but having a counselor like John has assisted us with continually building a great life together. James H

Jon is great! Very pleasant to talk to makes you feel comfortable and is very knowledgeable. I’ve never been to counseling because I didn’t think it would actually help and thought it was weird to speak to a stranger about your problems. But Jon has been working with my husband and myself and we both are extremely happy with him. Thank you Jon for helping us in these difficult moments.

Therapy and Counseling

I reached out to Jon and I wasn't to sure what to expect because this was my first time going to therapy. He is very professional and really knows what he is doing. Working together he has helped me to identify some root causes of my issues and ways to over come them. I highly recommend his service and will continue to work with him in the future. I think we all need therapy especially black people.

Marriage and Relationship Counseling

Liked it that he gets straight to the point but isn’t rude about it, no beating around the bush stuff. He knew what I felt before I tried to finish telling him. Looking forward to figuring out what we can do to save my relationship and I know he’ll be the one to help me since he has a flexible schedule.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Bridges accepts self-pay only, and does not accept insurance.

  • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

    Bridges is located in the metro Atlanta area. If you are out of town or out of state, video sessions are available for counseling and coaching. Time is of the essence: Often times people are on waiting list for a particular time slot and date. Consequently, I offer a 5 minute grace period of being late for an appointment. If you aren't able to make your appointment after 5 minutes, your session will be canceled, and I will move on to the next person on the waiting list for your time slot.
