John is great, he truly wants to give help to those who seek it and does so in a very laid back yet professional way. This makes it easier to communicate without fear of ridicule. He is great at switching gears during the sessions to ensure that no statements made go untouched with discussion either topics of discussion or random things I bring up. I highly recommend John to others who suffer from anxiety, depression, or PTSD. I finally feel like I am getting to know myself better because of him.
