“John has helped me in both my relationship with my partner and individually. With his coaching, I’ve been able to identify patterns in the way that I communicate and internalize my emotions that often lead to my lashing out and expressing myself in a non-productive way. His method of listening and commitment to understanding during our sessions have allowed me to open up in ways I never thought possible.
As you age, it’s difficult to break long-standing cycles or behaviors; but, John has exhibited patience and works intently with me to ensure I get what I need from each session. He doesn’t take the usual “therapy” approach by writing down everything his client says and refers to notes from previous sessions as his primary way of recollection, which makes me more willing to delve into the session. More importantly, John is not as concerned with punching the clock during a session. There’s been a few sessions that have run over out of necessity and he’s never made me feel as if I was being rushed.
I’ve enjoyed working with John over the past six months and look forward to continuing.”
"I have been working with Mr. Granger for a few months and I can honestly say that he has been instrumental in getting me through the struggles I have had through this pandemic and past struggles. He’s supportive and challenges me to think and believe in myself. He also provides great support for my spiritual journey which you do not find often. I look forward to our sessions and continued growth and healing as I continue to work with him!"

Some of the changes I have noticed in my son are:
Better control of his anger and anxiety, able to use coping skills with minimal verbal reminders from my husband and I, willingly engages in family activities, engaging more with his father on a one on one basis, but most of all, I am very happy to see that my son asserting himself positively when needing to express his feelings."
"As a young Black, male professional, it was crucial for me to find a Black male mental health professional, in-network, of course. After doing much research I stumbled upon John Granger and figured I’d give therapy a go, as it is all new to me. His approach, which is a combination of casual conversation intertwined with introspection and retrospection which makes my sessions both pleasurable and cathartic. With his assistance, I have been able to gain insight on how to be a better husband, father, son, brother, and more importantly, a better self. I look forward to my sessions, even when he aids me in seeing and understanding some of the road-blocks that have served as a hindrance to my growth and betterment. John’s assistance has impacted me greatly and has added intrinsic value to my life and those I share it with."
