About me

Maybe you’re hitting up against some loneliness and isolation right now. Or maybe some old burdens are affecting your current life. Lets talk. I don't have any platitudes about positive thinking, but your story matters to me. The thing is, I really enjoy helping people cultivate resilience and self- compassion. Depression, Chronic Pain, Anxiety, Anger that’s hard to control, all these are adversities that we humans grapple with. I've been doing this for a minute. I can say for sure that there is no cookie-cutter solution. It's more about connection. My focus is to create the space for someone to know they aren’t alone in this.
A gentle, trauma informed journey into mindfulness ensues, and flows towards specific therapy concepts that work best for the individual. We go with what resonates. I enjoy drawing from IFS, Narrative, CBT, and Client Centered therapies to name a few. These paths can be informed by specific Ted Talks/Podcasts to augment the learning part of our work.
I love the metaphor of life being a journey, a winding path. Most of us have internal burdens we're carrying along the way. Processing some of those with a neutral and supportive confidant, one who has earned your trust, can be immensely healing. So if you want to share the trail for a while, I'd be honored. Either way, I wish you the best on your journey.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for John Kauffroth. 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.

John is a warm and empathetic person with plenty of experience. He has always responded quickly with well thought out messages. He has a great ability of listening and understanding which is a great relief as it can be difficult talking about my feelings as a first time patient.
