Hi, I'm John. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I've provided therapy to clients who have been impacted by many different diagnoses and symptoms, with an emphasis on those related to depression, anxiety, and trauma. I have experience being with people in their lowest moments, and have had the privilege of seeing them heal and grow to become more who they really are when not impacted by mental health symptoms. I'm here to listen, understand, and help. I'd be happy to meet with you for a free 15 minute consultation to see if we're a good fit.

Does the world seem chaotic and to not make sense? Does it seem like you should be able to do more, but just can’t? Does it seem like there are social rules everyone else knows? Does it seem like when things go wrong, it’s your fault, but you don’t know why? Are you exhausted from ‘playing the role' of yourself in your life, trying to ‘do it right'? All families want peace, all individuals want greater ease and understanding in their lives. With over 25 years of providing services to exceptional individuals, I know the importance of having the right support for the need at hand.

We often seek therapy when we feel overwhelmed—by depression, anxiety, relationship conflict, or a life transition. I create an empathic, non-judgmental space where you can gain insight, recognize your strengths, and become more confident and secure. I believe each person is the expert on their own life and experience. Together, we’ll identify the patterns that are holding you back, as well as your unique strengths. I tailor my approach to best meet your needs and abilities. Sometimes, that means I provide practical, active strategies so you can feel more calm, balanced, and empowered.

Marriage and relationships are challenging and it is even harder to ask for what you want. Often people believe they are broken or their desires are shameful and I work to create change and facilitate communication. As a licensed psychotherapist, specializing in sex therapy, I work to help individuals, partners, and couples to connect. It is my passion to heal shame, have the hard talks, and facilitate communication. Personally, I know the challenges of maintaining the passion in a long term relationship and I don't believe it is normal to give up on intimacy.

What type of Salinas mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Salinas?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
