Meet the Team

Hello! I’m John

Someone much wiser than myself once said something to the effect that while we all experience pain at various times in our lives, it’s how we choose to respond that can define who we are. In other words, do we continue to suffer, or do we take that pain, acknowledge that it’s part of us, and forge ahead and use it to build something greater. Obviously you know that life isn’t a walk through the park (someone else said that, too) or you wouldn’t be looking for a therapist to help you move past the pain … and suffering … and help you make sense of where you’ve been and where you’d like to go. 

In over 20 years as a licensed clinical social worker and therapist, I’ve worked in a variety of settings, including a wilderness camp, hospitals, schools, behavioral health agencies, correctional facilities, and social service agencies, where I primarily worked with foster children. No matter what setting, though, my passion has been in working with people individually and helping them move past whatever they feel might be holding them back from becoming more of the person they would like to be. My approach to working with clients is client-centered, strengths-based, compassionate, and collaborative, as I believe there needs to be an explicit understanding of what we will be working on together. I draw upon years of using Cognitive Based Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness, and among my areas of interest are working with clients  hose lives have been affected by trauma, grief, and substance abuse. 

If you are struggling with issues that are currently making things difficult for you, I commend you for having the courage to reach out. If you’re struggling in your relationships, then undoubtedly it’s affecting things at work, or vice versa. That’s the way these things go. But just as things may have felt like they were starting to unravel piece by  piece, they can also begin to be put back together. Piece by piece. It’s a process, but things can get better. It would be my honor to be a part of your journey, but I wish you nothing but the best as you take these first steps.

John is currently accepting new clients in our Fuquay Varina office and telehealth.  John can schedule Medicare and Aetna members right away.  Members of other insurances including BCBS, UnitedHealthcare and Cigna may have a wait of approximately 4 weeks.
