“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.”
" John is not only compassionate, but he is also an active listener. He creates a non-judgmental environment for his clients; he also brings biblical truths, which I truly appreciate. John challenges me to be the best husband and father that I can be. When I moved from Memphis, I looked for a black male therapist who could help me navigate some of my past struggles, traumas, and wounds. Since working with John, I have seen a complete change in my identity. John has created a space for me to be okay with some of my past mistakes and some of the shame and guilt I once had. John has done a good job of pushing me towards understanding how I can be a better man. I appreciate John for showing me how to navigate this world authentically and unapologetically. John is going to help you do a lot of deep work that will help you be better."
" John has been a blessing to find. He has made a huge impact on my teen son. My son has made a true connection with John. John provides my son with a safe emotional space to process his racial traumas he has endured
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."
