John is terrific. He listens. He offers feedback. He doesn't always agree with me. He tries to find new ways to relate to my situation.

John really helped me through a difficult time in a toxic work environment that almost sent me over the edge. With John’s expertise I was able to develop tools to help me cope with the difficult situation until I was able to get into a better place. He has helped me see relationships in a new light and helped me develop goals and set boundaries in my personal relationships. I recommend John as a great therapist.

John is a wonderful person to talk to. He listens to what I have to say, and follows the ideas I have to help me see them through all the way. He helps me see the value in myself, by giving me a path to find that value on my own two feet, so to speak.

John has been so supportive over the last months we've worked together. There's never a time I question his expertise or advice, and I feel comfortable confiding my thoughts and insecurities with him. He's been very helpful with my mental health and wellbeing.
