Jon Cunha

Jon Cunha, LMHC earned his Master's from Lesley University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Jon is the Co-Owner of Riser and Tread, a company dedicated to helping young guys ages 9-25 "Step Up + Move Forward." Jon is also the Chief Performance Coach for Cherish health helping to optimize both company and individual performances. Jon's passion lies in working with athletes around issues of prehab (preventative care), injury, performance and identity. Jon was a three time All-American in Track and Field at Wheaton College, MA until injury ended his aspirations of pursuing it as a career. That experience helped motivate him towards wanting to support others going through something similar. Jon developed a training program for athletes, coaches, and organizations to strengthen mental fitness and resolve by focusing on prehab. Along with his clinical license, Jon also coached Track and Field for almost a decade. He combines the benefits of therapeutic interventions, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), with athletic coaching principles, such as goal + fear setting, purpose development, and breath training.
