John is a great listener and a wealth of knowledge and feedback. He will lead you to the answers and can also tell it like it is if that’s your preference. I’m new to therapy so Early on I used to wonder if there would be anything interesting to talk about at the beginning of every session and every time I was amazed how time flies when talk to John. He creates this non judgmental safe space to talk and we end up with a great non stop chat and exchange of feedback and all in all a great positive and rewarding experience. Thank you!
