Jonathan Boye, LPC-MHSP, MBA, Chief Behavioral Health Officer

Jonathan’s professional journey began as a teacher/counselor at Magnolia Academy, a wilderness boot camp for misguided children. It was this adventure that would lead him to take a position at a more traditional wilderness program called Three Springs. During his tenure with Three Springs, Jonathan was promoted from a counselor to a supervisor of a short-term program called Leaps.

Feeling called to pursue a master’s degree, he moved to Waxahachie, Texas, to obtain a master’s in Counseling/Psychology at Southwestern Assembly of God University (SAGU). Upon graduating from SAGU, he gained employment at Adapt of Texas, a private organization working with consumers, family members and other providers to develop recovery-oriented services for those who suffer from psychological disorders. From at Adapt, he moved to Wylie Center at Holston United Methodist Children’s Home, where he became a director for a residential treatment center, and he now heads up Mercy’s Mental and Behavioral Health Services. He is a licensed professional counselor with a mental health specialist provider specification.

Jonathan is married to his wife, Rachel, and they have five daughters. When not at Mercy, Jonathan’s hobbies include karate (he’s a 4th degree black belt in Wado-Ryu), hiking, skiing and collecting old metal lunchboxes.
