About me

As a Licensed Professional counselor and Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, I have over 35 years experience. I have worked with all age groups across many dimensions, including outpatient, inpatient, residential, and emergency hospital settings. Areas I have worked with include, but are not limited to are depression, anxiety, relationship issues, communication issues, addictions, dependency and anger management. I generally take a cognitive behavioral approach, but do not limit my approach, but tailor my treatment to the individual client needs. I am generally laid back and very accepting in nature, but I also will be direct when I feel it is needed. I also like to instill some humor in therapy, but only when appropriate and not at the clients expense. It takes courage to reach out to someone for help, and I will support you in your endeavor. I believe therapy is about change, and it will take motivation and action on the client's part to make that change. But I will be there to support you in the process.

Mr. Moore is great! Very relatable and has years of experience he freely shares with me as a client.

John has figured out what works best for me and rather than a bunch of “how does that make you feel” questions which I don’t do well with, we just talk. From the start it’s like I am just talking about good and bad things in my life with a friend. It’s really helped me find focus again with my work and the courage to do what I need in my personal life.

John is a great therapist who knows what he's doing.

Written on Feb 21, 2022 after therapy with John for 1 year and 6 months on issues concerning coping with life changes

John has so much professional skill, but additionally, he has a lot of wisdom and practicality. He's my go-to sounding board on all the curve balls and complex situations that life has been throwing my way. He helps me distill them down and figure out what's truly important - bringing me much peace!

John is a great guy. Great listener and offers actionable steps to move forward. He is a good fit for my style and I look forward to future sessions with him.

Written on Nov 25, 2021 after therapy with John for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

I have only had one session with John so it may be a bit soon to do a review. But I will say that I like John, I don't know how important that is in therapy or not. Before seeking help, I was wondering what kind of therapist I would get. One that challenged my assumptions and thoughts or one that advocated for me. John is more of the latter but as I said, one session is not much to go on.

I am reading the book he recommended, it's helpful. The research and studies he recalls are also helpful. I will continue with John as time and money permit.

Written on Nov 24, 2021 after therapy with John for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and coping with life changes

John was very helpful during the therapy sessions. He understood what I was going through and talked about things I need to work on.

Good listener and good advice

Written on Sep 10, 2021 after therapy with John for 11 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and career difficulties

John is fantastic! I've been with him for almost a year at this point, not because I need it anymore, but because it's really great talking to him. He's helped me work through anxiety and depression and he gives me realistic and honest feedback. He even remembers when I have big events coming up throughout the week, and he'll send me a quick message asking how things went afterwards. He is a great counselor and an amazing person!

John is excellent at making others feel heard by trying to relate to what they may be experiencing. He pulls a lot from his own experiences in a way that creates a sense of trust and honesty, making his input feel all the more valuable.

Smart guy. Personable. Good effort. Helpful

Written on Mar 01, 2021 after therapy with John for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and adhd

John was extremely helpful with my needs when I spoke to him. He is extremely understanding, easy to talk too, and has a great balance of listening to me/ offering some insight. I was extremely scared of using a male counselor but John has made me extremely happy that I gave it a chance. It’s nice to hear a males perspective on some of issues. I hadnt followed up with him like I said I would and he reached out just to check on me which meant a lot to me. I highly recommend John!

Written on Jan 28, 2021 after therapy with John for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

John is awesome. He’s a good listener and interjects when needed and recommends things based on our conversations. I have already told one of my friend about him and I’m looking forward to lore sessions with him.

John has been very helpful thus far.

Written on Dec 31, 2020 after therapy with John for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue


I started therapy with John in one of the most difficult moments of my life. At my lowest, John pulled me back up with his patience, kindness and wise advice. I can’t even picture what my life would have looked like have I not met him. John counseled me through a tough breakup, family issues, setting boundaries, self esteem issues, crippling paranoia and anxiety, friendship issues, dealing with events from my past and addressing questions regarding my faith that I’ve been too afraid to ask. John is very responsive, and always there to provide advice. I find him to be an excellent listener, a person who does not judge people but takes them as they are and tries to help them mend themselves. I find John to be very intelligent, well-read and a person who can see beyond cultural differences. He is a superb life-coach, and a very supportive person all around. After working with him for 6 months, I see changes in my life I never thought possible. I find myself having more moments of gratefulness and heart-warming laughs, I am getting so much better at saying “no” whenever I feel my limits being pushed, and I’m surprised at how I learned to enjoy my own company and like the things I do. I wholeheartedly believe John has been a blessing in my life. I would recommend him to anyone who needs guidance in their life. As I learned from John, things can get better, no matter how impossible it seems and it is in our power to make them so.

Written on Dec 21, 2020 after therapy with John for 2 months on issues concerning family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and grief

John is a great listener and engages well across all tools available via the application. He’s responsive to email and text messages and makes the most of any face to face/zoom type sessions. I found his techniques very helpful in working through family issues. Highly recommend John as a counselor. Demonstrates keen insight and empathy.
