I have been working with John for the last couple weeks and I cannot begin to describe how grateful I am to have someone that inspires compassion, change, gratefulness, and understanding. He is extremely responsive and from the very first few seconds of meeting he made me feel accepted, welcomed, and supportive.

John is a wonderful therapist with an abundance of knowledge and experience. In addition to his experience, I find what makes him special is his overwhelming empathy, and willingness to learn from your experiences to mold solutions that work for you. He listens and cares about those he interacts with and I think that's the most important aspect of his role!

John has been an incredible listener and adapts to what makes me most comfortable. He does push me out of my comfort zone is areas that are important, and really helps me focus on the tasks at hand.
