About Me

I am a professional counselor licensed in Michigan with over 10 years of experience working as a counselor and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, LGBTQ+ issues, and career challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and humanistic counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

John listens, cares, and guides you to clarity and peace on your challenges and hardships. If you’re in between therapists, choose John. You won’t regret it. Thank you, John for bringing me to my feet again.

After my first session, I felt very supported, heard, and understood by John. I had a calming sense once we were finished talking and hopeful I can manage my struggles ahead of me

I look forward to each session with John. He’s down to earth, nurturing, sincere, and very helpful. In the past I’ve had experiences with other therapist where I did not feel like they wanted to help me as much as they wanted to get the session over with. I feel the complete opposite with John. I wish I was able to describe his value better.
