John Thacker's Care Philosophy

People come to therapy because they want to feel better. It might be relationship problems or anxiety/depression, but whatever the reason, life has become uncomfortable or painful. Most people want more understanding of themselves and their situation. That being said, change is what we all seek in therapy. Making your life work better is the goal. I focus on altering self-defeating ways, gaining perspective, and increasing insight that leads to change. The result is an improved quality of life.

Mr. Thacker is a great listener. In addition to office-time discussion, he had lots of resources and suggestions for furthering treatment outside of the office setting (e.g. suggestions for meditation apps for phone, videos to watch, websites to visit, and worksheets listing various self-help tools). I found that most helpful to continue my mental health journey on a day-to-day basis between appointments. Never felt rushed during appointments. Would highly recommend.

Best.therapist.ever. John is warm and compassionate and put me immediately at ease the very first time I saw him. He's very perceptive and helpful and you can tell that he truly cares. He is always on the lookout for additional resources and tools to aide in recovery in addition to his ability to listen empathetically. He is very supportive and has truly been a Godsend and I am thankful for the role he has played in my healing journey.
