John is a Licensed Master Social Worker who utilizes a person-centered, behavioral, and sometimes humorous approach to help clients solve their problems. John completed his undergraduate degree at Middle Tennessee State University and his graduate degree at the University of Tennessee College of Social Work in Nashville where his area of focus was on trauma-related issues in civilian and military populations. Prior to becoming a therapist, John spent many years as a touring/recording musician and maintains insight into difficulties related to the music industry: divorce, interpersonal relationships, and self-identity. John also works as an outpatient therapist in community mental health treating mood disorders, anxiety, addiction, and trauma. He came to PSYCHē to co-lead DBT Skills Group with a fondness for Carl Rogers, and remains for his equal fondness of irreverence.  

In his spare time, John has very little spare time. However, he likes to play music, listen to jazz (and other music deemed “awful” by his wife), watch movies, hike, run, and most importantly, spend time with his wife and son.
