I am a mental wellness counselor licensed in Ohio, Colorado, and Montana, currently residing in Ohio, with 20 years of experience working as a counselor in community-based settings. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, impulse-control disorders including substance use, and Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD. I also have worked with many people who have experienced physical trauma or 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, Solution-Focused, Motivational Enhancement and Rational-Emotive Counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for 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!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for John Engebretson. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
I like John. I can relate to the gentleman and he has good skills that I use in my daily life simply because I think he uses them himself.
John is great to talk with about masculinity, confidence and communication. He listens to what you want to work on and allows you to control the direction. He is well read and knowledgeable. Always seems to be able to recommend just the right piece of literature for self study.
Very friendly, helpful and always listens to my concerns and gives me solid advice! Would highly recommend John!
John is very understanding and has a soft touch, provides resources and works with you
He's very patient, very attentive, plants the direction and lets you take the lead.
John soothes my soul.
John is very kind and a very good listener, and I can talk to him comfortably without any worries, I gained new perspective of things in my life after a number of sessions. Therefore, I would recommend him without any doubt.
I value active listening with simple and effective actions.
Really good listener, and a really nice person!
