About Survivor Support

 

With years of clinical experience helping survivors, and with a deep understanding of the unique challenges survivors face during their journey to healing, Survivor Support is a trusted resource for those in need of help and for those desiring to learn how to better help survivors.       

About the Founder

Jon K. Uhler is a Licensed Professional Counselor, whose education includes:  Epic Bible College (AA in Ministerial Arts), Biola University (BA in Christian Education), Talbot School of Theology (studies in Marriage and Family Ministries), and California State University, Fullerton (MS in Counseling). During his graduate work, he conducted unique research into the family dynamics of compulsive and/or emotional over-eaters.

Jon’s professional experience spans over 25 years, working in both clinical and administrative capacities, in outpatient settings with individuals, couples, and families, in hospital settings, in intensive day treatment settings, in residential treatment programs, and in secure (locked) facilities.

 

Jon has over 10 years experience working with adjudicated adolescents and seriously emotionally-troubled teens; as well as, over 11 years working "behind bars" in a forensic clinical capacity. Not only did he develop the nation's first-of-its-kind intensive residential treatment program within a long-term solitary confinement environment, but he also spent thousands of hours working within a treatment capacity with the full continuum of sex offenders (including many designated as Sexually Violent Predators). Additionally, he is certified through the PA Dept. of Corrections to oversee treatment programming for those wrestling with Co-occurring Disorders, and he is both clinically certified to assess and evaluate Risk Levels of sex offenders, and to conduct forensic assessments for Psychopathy via the PCL-R.   

 

Of all clinical populations with which he has worked, Jon's heart lies with those who wrestle with the effects of trauma, especially the trauma resulting from sexual abuse. He has extensive clinical experience working with those who suffer from trauma-related disorders, Dissociative Identity Disorder, and other effects of serious and long-term childhood ritualistic abuse.

If you want to fully understand all the facets of the grief process, then this unique presentation holds the key.  Follow the arrow to find out more...
