John Whitaker, LMHC, LLC is not currently accepting new clients.
We each face challenges in our lives and sometimes we may need extra help to cope with changes. I work collaboratively with you to help you successfully overcome your challenges and meet your goals using holistic, evidence-based techniques. My passion is helping individuals reconnect with their authentic, empowered selves in a healthy way and create positive relationships for a more fulfilling life.
One of my specialties is helping clients cope with and manage anxiety and other emotional stress using mindfulness training to address the thoughts that create their feelings as well as teaching techniques to manage related physical symptoms. My approach is tailored to my client's needs and comfort level.
While I have specific knowledge and training, my clients are the experts on their own lives. We will work together to help you find solutions that work for you. Each of us has an inner wisdom and I will help you to access yours in a safe and supportive environment.
