About My Clients
As a current post-graduate fellow at the Psychotherapy Institute of Back Bay (PIBB), I see individual and couples psychotherapy clients in-person at our office on Newbury Street in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston. I also see clients virtually in my private practice. My particular interests include psychodynamic psychotherapy, AEDP, ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP), psychedelic integration work, and pastoral/spiritual care.
My Background and Approach
Jonathan DeWeese is a board-certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP), as well as a board-certified adult-gerontology primary care nurse practitioner. He currently works in the psychiatry department of Massachusetts General Hospital, a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital where he has practiced for over seven years. He is also a current post-graduate fellow at the Psychotherapy Institute of Back Bay and at the Psychodynamic Couple & Family Institute of New England. Clinically, Jonathan has experience in inpatient, outpatient, emergency, correctional, and hospice settings. He works with a number of mental health concerns including mood and anxiety disorders, ADHD, and substance use disorders (including Suboxone/buprenorphine prescribing). He is also passionate about ketamine-assisted psychotherapy and prescribes ketamine lozenges for this purpose.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
My goal is to foster a therapeutic alliance with my patients. I start this by honoring patients as experts in their own experience, and approaching this expertise with humility, curiosity, and a tolerance for difference. I make myself fully available to my patients with deep presence and attention in order to co-create a safe container in which they can feel difficult emotions and explore their human experience. My patients and I work together to be authentic and compassionate, and toward the achievement of their specific goals. While I emphasize the therapeutic relationship and psychotherapy, not all patients require psychotherapy. I do see some patients for medication management only.
