About me

I'm John Horsley and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Counselor both in the state of Indiana. I graduated from Indiana University with a Master's Degree in Social Work. I have worked extensively with individuals and families who have dealt with substance use disorders and complications from substance use disorders. I've also focused on working with individuals who have experienced trauma and secondary trauma. I've practiced in a variety of settings and seeing a variety of clients with various struggles.
I believe that the relationship between the client and the therapist is the foundation and essential component in the change process. I believe in meeting individuals where they are in the growth process and partnering with them to walk through change together. I have developed many tools for the toolbox and understand that each person has unique needs and requires unique approaches. Most of all, I want to respect the place my client is at and make sure they are feeling safe and motivated.
Congratulations on taking the first step on your journey. It would be an honor to walk it with you.

I've been using Better Help for half a year, and can't imagine I'd be in such a great healthy, headspace without John's guidance and support.

John has been doing an excellent job. He's so easy to talk to, listens intentively, uses experiences only you decide to share to shape the direction of each conversation in a way that makes sense, and helps me connect dots on more levels than I was able to on my own. The tools he's provided me so far seem to be working, and I'm excited to continue this journey of healing and growing with him as my guide.
