About Me

I've been privileged to work with and help people of all ages over the course of my life as a therapist, for every possible presenting issue and concern.
It has been so gratifying to know that I have helped clients who've been struggling with debilitating, crippling emotional problems and challenges.
I have been able to give my clients the strategies and means to help themselves deal with issues and concerns that were significantly and negatively impacting on their personal lives, their relationships, and their careers.

The areas in which I've worked most extensively have been:
struggles with anxiety and depression, negative self-esteem and self-image, issues of self-empowerment and transformation, problems with stress management, organizational skills, lack of motivation,, trauma and tragedy, relationship challenges with couples, and grief, loss and bereavement.
I have always had the most positive results by using Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy techniques with my clients. My deeper, philosophical and therapeutic approach is Holistic, with primary emphasis on the Mind/Body/Soul connection.
When it is appropriate, I also the use and teach Mindfulness training, and Visualization/ Relaxation techniques.

TEENS COUNSELING: I've also become recognized as having a sub-specialty with adolescents and young adults. Not every therapist has either the skills, personality or temperament to work with this age range.
With this age range, the issues I deal with most frequently are: lack of motivation, school performance, self-esteem, social interactions, relationships with parents and peers, and coping with ADHD.

Dr. Bearoff is fantastic. He really helps me focus on both my long term goals and any immediate concerns that arise. He is understanding of my issues and my personality and it is very easy and enjoyable to work with him because of this.

John is very reassuring and inquisitive in a way that helps me think about and articulate my issues better. He was incredibly diligent and thorough at reassuring me about my initial concerns related to scheduling and how the sessions would go in general. I felt very well listened to and respected. I love his sense of humor and the way he supports me in discovering things for myself.

I would very much recommend sessions with him!

His help has been constructive, giving me tools to start deal with my issues in a step-wise, self reliant manner, so nothing is overwhelming and everything is manageable.
