The creator and co-author of "101 Ways to Conquer Teen Anxiety" and the forthcoming book, "In Case of Anxiety... Anxiety Hacks for a Janky World," Hatcher pursued his alchemy of nonfiction writing devoted to assisting people with life-altering adversities through relatable, cathartic, and insightful content that tackles various hardships in an approach not utilized elsewhere.

As an active and gregarious guy who rebounded from 13 sports-related surgeries, anxiety, and cancer, Jon is an expert at sourcing the humor and meaning in lifeís trials, while helping others leverage their innate ability to adapt and overcome intense difficulty. He holds an M.A. from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and has spent years studying, utilizing, and sharing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) techniques, which he conveys in laymen flair.

Jon writes in an engaging style from the vantage of someone who continues to effectively manage anxiety and depression. Consequently, he is a huge proponent of the techniques he teaches, as he knows their effectiveness firsthand.
