You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Behavior Change • Digital Health • Emotional Intelligence • Executive coaching • Healthcare services • Organizational Development

Key Accomplishments

As a psychologist with a passion for business, I recognize that the current healthcare system is deeply flawed and resistant to change, and that digital health has tremendous potential for helping people change their lives for the better. Technology can erase the barriers that prevent so many from accessing behavioral health services.

As the founder and director of a growing behavioral health company, I can draw on my clinical and industry knowledge. I am looking to collaborate with designers and developers who want to apply their technical craft to a very human set of problems. I am especially interested in developing products that can either connect users to trained professionals (like eTherapi), deliver clinical content to users (like Joyable), or help users track clinically relevant data (like Pacifica). I am also open to other ideas.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Since my expertise is in the content of behavioral health (program design and evaluation, clinical assessment instruments) and the behavioral health landscape (insurance companies and other third-party payers), I would like to "own" those aspects of product development and business development.

I would like to collaborate closely with one or more developers or designers who would have the freedom and responsibility to create a technically sound, user-friendly product. I am open to remote collaboration, but in-person is preferred (SF Bay Area).

Jonathan would make a terrific advisor to a young company in the healthcare or healthcare tech space. He is a psychologist, but I have long ... known him to have a strong interest in entrepreneurship. He has built a highly successful stress and anxiety clinic, and he has experience helping tech company founders stay focused and build healthy organizational cultures.
