I’m in such a better place then I was a year ago. His knowledge in what I am struggling with was vast and he gave me the space to laugh and cry, yet also grow and not be shackled by the past. Circumstances have not changed drastically for me but my mindset has; thank you John.

My discussions with John have helped me in ways beyond words. He is a great listener, and give insightful dialogue that is impactful and relevant. I was in a bit of an anxious and transitional period recently that was only compounded by the stresses of my own problems, and John helped me navigate through it. I highly recommend his counsel.
