Hi -- I'm John Checkett (pronounced as in, Check it out!), a highly educated therapist holding degrees in several of the social sciences. I'm the first man in history to earn a master's degree in Women's Studies in Florida, an academic discipline which I have also taught on a university level. I also hold university degrees in communication arts and social work, as well as being an LCSW. I've worked in emergency screening, providing spot analysis for emergency mental health cases with no advance notice. I have also worked for years in the prison system, with inmates experiencing mental health difficulties. I'm an excellent listener and communicator, and I specialize in problems related to gender, problems between couples -- which are usually matters of communication -- and social justice. I employ an integrative approach, drawing especially upon cognitive behavioral therapy, Jungian and narrative therapy, addressing such matters as self-care, empowerment, self image, self esteem and conflict resolution.

Personable, knowledgeable, listens with care and offers solutions and valuable techniques. Very prompt to respond and has a great sense of humor. Highly recommended!
I enjoy speaking with him, great listener. Empathetic, funny, relatable and a kind person. He is a great therapist!
I can't thank Prof. Checkett enough for being a part of my recovery. The patience that he provides as well as the wisdom is most greatly appreciated. Hopefully, I can continue with Prof. Checkett in the future when I'm seeking help. Thanks again!
Dr. Checkett is a fantastic therapist with lots of knowledge. He’s also very fun to speak with, and likes to crack jokes, which makes talking that much easier
