LPCC, LPC

About me

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!

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.
