The most important roles we take on in life, that of spouses and parents, come without instruction manuals leaving us ill prepared to face the inevitable challenges that arise. As a result, we face the erosion of the family system with an increased divorce rate, a decrease in those seeking marriage, and the rise in the number of children suffering from depression and seeking relief through drugs, alcohol and suicide. Our families are in a state of emergency. As a counselor my goal is to provide a lifeline by empowering individuals to change, break generational cycles and acquire the skills necessary for successful living.
Hi there! My name is John and I've been practicing as a licensed professional counselor for 6 years. I have two major specializations. My first specialization is adult males ages (18-50) dealing with depression, anxiety, purposelessness, relationship issues and/or suicidal ideation.

I have worked with clients in community mental health, schools, and also a residential substance abuse center. It is a privilege to help others work with anxiety, depression, trauma, substance use, grief and loss among many other issues.
You get up early and face the world. You have many people that depend on you. Perhaps you’re a mother, a spouse, a student, a friend, an employee, a combination of all of the above, or more. You know how to “keep pushing” to keep “doing what you have to do” because that’s what’s expected of you. That’s what you know. That’s who you are. You’re the problem-solver, the fixer, the go-to person for everyone. It’s a lot. Sometimes you want someone to just be there and provide a safe space where you are heard without judgement or expectations. Today you’re taking that first step in making that happen.

Identify the obstacles that have held them back, develop their goals and future visions of themselves and their relationships and design a unique plan to achieve this.
