About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida with 20 years of experience in the counseling field. I have worked with individuals and families on a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, postpartum depression, grief and loss, and relationship issues. I use an interpersonal, relational approach in the counseling process with the goal of facilitating change through improved and enriched relationships.

I have experience in a variety of settings including hospitals, community mental health agencies, and call centers. My counseling approach draws influence from Person-Centered Therapy and Object Relations Therapy, and I also use Solution Focused Therapy for very specific needs or goals. I believe there is always hope for a better, more fulfilled life regardless of past circumstances or broken relationships.

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

Written by M.A. on Jul 06, 2019 after therapy with John for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

John has been very helpful in helping me set realistic goals to understand and work through my grief. No loss is ever easy, but being able to talk to someone who understands that it's not easy has been helpful.

Work with me!
