John’s great. Very intuitive in determining issue root causes and adept at recommending different approaches to assist. He’s a great listener but is also focused on real outcomes and progress. John’s input has helped me grow my self understanding and awareness of different approaches to assist with my situation more in a few sessions than I’ve been able to do over a few years alone.
I’d highly recommend working with John if your looking for a seasoned professional that will help you make real progress on your goals.
