During his years of private psychotherapy practice, Jon worked with children, adolescents, adults, families and couples and, from it, gained an understanding of the importance of social space within a given community. For Jon, the Brooklyn Strategist represents the ultimate combination of a life-long passion for strategy games, promoting social responsibility and interaction within his community.
