Hello. Thank you for checking out my profile.
I have worked in the behavioral health field as a clinical counselor, addictions counselor and behavior analyst since the early 1980s. I am licensed as a Clinical Counselor by the US State of Idaho and am certified as a National Certified Counselor, Master Addictions Counselor by the National Board for Certified Counselors., in Trauma Therapy by the International Association of Trauma Professionals, and as a Board Certified Telemental Health Provider by the Center for Credentialing and Education. I hold an MS Degree in Behavior Analysis and Therapy from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale.
Certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT), and trained in EMDR, I am well prepared to help people with issues related to current and past traumas. I am comfortable working with people of all ages on issues including mood disorders, substance abuse, anxiety, sexuality issues, relationship issues, grief, parenting struggles, stress management, and poor impulse control.
The relationship between the client and the counselor is the most important element in therapy. I always keep that in mind. My primary approach is known as "Neuroscience Informed Cognitive Behavior Therapy;" this means that I use a brain-based approach to changing thoughts and behaviors. Cognitive Behavior Therapy is generally considered the fastest and most effective form of therapy, because the focus is on the present. I am certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, which is a particularly effective form of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, designed to meet the needs of people with particularly difficult issues, such as severe personality disorders, self-harm and addictions.
I am respectful of all beliefs, religious or otherwise, but do not take a spiritual approach to counseling. That is, I will respect your views, but will not try to force my own on you. I will not encourage us to start sessions with a prayer, and I will not tell you to go to church; though I will surely encourage evidence-based practices such as mindfulness meditation.
I am the father of a young a woman with severe developmental disabilities, and have had several "real-world" jobs, such as over-the-road truck driver and police officer.
I enjoy helping people reach their goals and resolve what is bothering them. My goal is to help you develop the skills to be your own therapist. I encourage you to start today to change your life for the better by allowing me to help your through your journey.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
I also have experience in Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Intimacy-related issues, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder, Depression

He's very reliable and a big help.
I have learned a lot from John, and he taught me a lot of things which where motivational. I really respect this person for how much he has helped me so far. Thank you!
I have checked in with John a few times now. I feel like he is a person I can rely on and have in my corner. Its pretty hard to share feelimgs with other but with John it is easy
Very helpful and supportive.
John Condron is a very nice counselor; I really enjoyed talking to him. He is very understanding and sensible. I strongly recommend him.
John has been working with me for the past 4 months and I am glad I downloaded this app and met him here. He might have saved me from some serious struggles!
John immediately knows what you are trying to say. He knows very well emotions connected to anxiety. I really appreciated the easy mental exercises that he suggested to incorporate throughout the day. They helped me understand the basis behind what I am feeling.
I had a very positive experience with Better Help and with my counselor John Condron. He’s very professional and a good listener and I immediately felt at ease and was able to express myself freely.
John is thoughtful, insightful and relatable. An excellent choice all around.
Very helpful guy. Understands you from first few words. Supportive.
What can I say- honest and helpful all in one. Thanks John
As this is my first experience with online counseling and John is my first counsellor I don't really have anything to compare him to however I think he's great at what he does. He checks in with me regularly which helps as I often forget and he does a mix of sessions and worksheets which has been fun and informative. John has a wealth of experience and always knows what to say. Thanks John and the BetterHelp Team.
This is my first experience with online counseling and John is my first counselor. I have not been as regular as I ought to be, so he initiates contact to check in and remind me he's there. It would be easy for me to blow off treatment if he weren't doing so, so I appreciate that. He reminds me that there are multiple platforms we can use for therapy when I tend to lazily just message at odd hours. He seems to hear what I *mean* even when I don't say it very well and comes back with positive suggestions, articles and resources. He's not pushy about anything, no personal agenda, no objection to whether I mention religious things or not, I really can't think of any constructive criticism at all, much less complaints. Thanks for connecting me with a good therapist, it's made the newness of this kind of therapy very smooth. In my physical location I have no access to therapists at all, so it's been nice to find a distance support system. Thanks again.
Exemplary, professional, personable. The perfect counselor.
John is amazing. Not only he listens to me very well but he gives me 'solutions' to try. Whenever we have a session, he DOES invest his time and effort as much as I want willingly. I am really satisfied with his counseling ways. It is so helpful for me to change my mindset in a positive way and to be a better person. I highly recommend him as a counselor.
John is really friendly and I really like to talk to him about my problems. He responds me in time. Every time I read a message from John it is a new perspective to life and my problems. I feel like I can solve all of my problems with the help of him. I hope to be keep in contact with him for a while. He is an amazing counselor. :)
I truly enjoy my time working with John; He was able to give me well-needed assurances, and set me on the path to happiness.
John is helpful and knowledgeable. He has helped me through CBT approaches, and helped me to get better.
