John enjoys exploring people’s stories and believes in the resiliency and potential that each person possesses no matter what they have been through. He loves when Brené Brown writes, “When we have the courage to walk into our story and own it, we get to write the ending.” He counts it a privilege to accompany clients through the therapeutic process of healing the past, overcoming where they are stuck in the present, and writing beautiful new chapters in their stories.

Personal

John worked in the business sector for years before leaving to serve in nonprofit leadership, where he spent more than a decade living in Central America working with an organization that serves street kids. As a result of his time in Central America, John speaks Spanish fluently, and currently serves as the Spanish- speaking chaplain for the Atlanta Braves. In his free time, John loves running, playing golf, traveling, and watching all sports. He also often finds himself dreaming of a day away trout fishing with his wife in a mountain stream, or hiking along a trail and enjoying the shenanigans of their two young children.
