Dr. Jonathan Mosko was trained as a counseling psychologist at Purdue University. Prior to joining the program at Johnson & Wales, Dr. Mosko worked as a full-time therapist for roughly six years at Ohio University and Virginia Tech in their university counseling centers. While there, he developed specialties in conducting group therapy, working with persons with eating disorders, and treating a variety of mental health concerns. While at Ohio, he also taught graduate-level classes in their Clinical Psychology doctoral program.

Dr. Mosko was thrilled to be able to come to JWU and teach full-time in the undergraduate Psychology programs, as well as the Counseling master’s program. At JWU, he teaches a variety of undergraduate classes, such as Intro Psych, Abnormal Psych, Human Sexuality, Group Therapy and Senior Research Seminar.

In the master’s program, Dr. Mosko often teaches Multicultural Counseling, Professional Orientation & Ethical Practice, Research, and Counseling Theories & Techniques.
