About

John Gatto is a highly experienced licensed therapist, with a 35 year career in School Guidance Counseling, outpatient therapy and inpatient mental health treatment. John has a passion for sports, and has helped many teens and adults realize their full potential overcoming personal sports performance issues. John also leverages his diverse background in helping client's who present with issues related to anxiety, depression, relationships, or academics. John believes that empowerment is a key to successful living and focuses on enhancing a client's own abilities and problem-solving to adapt, adjust and overcome.
Client centered therapies including cognitive behavioral, reality, and Rogerian therapies are primary modes of treatment. Steering clients through gaining insight, empowerment, discernment, and independent decision making are the goals in counseling. Trust and unconditional positive regard are the concepts used to facilitate healing and closure.
Building positive relationships, trust, and non-judgmental approaches are effective ways of getting a client to open up and discuss conflicts and painful events (baggage) that continually block a person from being content, happy, or having a sense of peace each day. Resolving issues and increasing insight are the keys to healing.
