John works with a variety of issues including: Anger, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), chemical health, child and adolescent behavioral challenges, conflict resolution, depression, grief and loss, life changes, relationships, and self improvement.
John is a therapist with 25 years experience as a mental health clinician serving adults, couples, children, adolescents and families. His training from the University of Iowa and Simmons College in Boston offers a strong theoretical grounding in psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy. That is important, but more important is your experience as a client. Our work together will be built upon a helping relationship of trust and understanding. What would it look like? Identifying and solving specific problems; exploring aspects of your "self" and utilizing your strengths; making change that you set as a goal.

I see clients of any age, however, I focus largely on play therapy with children and their families as it is a growing passion of mine.
If you are looking for a therapist who is present, genuine, and offers a caring and therapeutic space, then we might be a match. I love working with clients who are brand new to therapy and might feel a bit nervous. And clients who have been in therapy previously and may already know what they want out of the experience. Wherever you are on your journey, my mission is to meet you right where you are and walk alongside you to achieve the goals and dreams you have, or perhaps work to develop them altogether. I am also trained in Brainspotting which can be especially powerful for clients with a history of trauma.

You can make the change you want. And I can help. I can assist you in transforming negative and destructive thoughts and behavior into more helpful and compassionate responses.

Then I design a program to help you change these behaviors and cope with your existing situation. This mindfulness-based therapy emphasizes working together to help you with depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, and chronic or emotional pain; resolve relationship issues; or recover from trauma and grief.
