My husband and I saw John regularly for about 2 years at the time we were dating and went through one of the most difficult times of our lives due to a huge challenge outside of our relationship. Not only did John make us feel supported, understood and cared for but he even did his best to protect us in Court. I never imagined I was going to ever feel harassed and discriminated against in such a brutal way at that time, and John did all that was necessary to empower us and clarify all our doubts until the closure of that terrible time we had to go through. John helped me so much by looking into my eyes, empathizing and explaining everything I couldn't answer myself...such as the lengths of what hurt, malice or manipulation can get to...so I will be forever grateful to John and his wisdom, kindness and patience. I recommend him strongly to anyone who has questions and doubts about life, relationships, love, parenthood, and/or any emotional challenges at home/work you may have to endure.

Immediately, Dr. John acted like he was a real human being, not a stereotypcal therapist who stares quietly at you and occasionally asks, "And how do you FEEL about that?" He engages in a real conversation and he asks me questions when he doesn't understand something. He never assumes that he understands you just because he's worked with teenagers before. I was able to trust him right away. He never gave me more than I could handle.

I have been going to John off and on for a while now (several years). He has always amazed me with his attention to detail and insight. He is very easy to talk to and really listens to what you have to say.

It's always so hard to find a good therapist who you feel connected to, and who listens well. I found John online, somewhat by accident, and ended up seeing him for about 2 years. I was always so impressed by how attentively he listened to my (1st world) problems, and helped me to see patterns and make connections in my behavior that would eventually help me to pull myself out of my low place. I think back on his insights even today, although I've moved away and am doing much better.

John has been very effective in helping me improve my emotional life and to develop my emotional intelligence. Mr. Gingras has guided me and helped me uncover my fears and weaknesses and showed ways to identify poor communications patterns with my wife and at work. I have been in a much better position to deal with very stressful situation and rescue my marriage.

He was a good match for me. Other Therapists wanted to teach me about mindfulness. John asked me what I thought might work for me. He used a scientific approach asking me to keep track and rate my experiences of disturbances and in a few weeks he helped me realize that I can use my my own way of mental self coaching to lower my disturbances. I have been free of anxiety attacks for a month now!

He helped be by identifying what I was already good and the skills I had and start by using them more. My self-confidence shot up and I was willing to learn a few more skills to handle problems I had for a long time.
