Welcome to my website. I hope you find it useful for learning the essentials about my practice as a psychologist. In these pages you will learn a bit about me and my  approach to helping people, as well as my policies and procedures. If you are considering organizational consulting and coaching services or seeing a professional for counseling/therapy, please let me know how I can be of service to you.

In my practice, I provide:

  • Organizational consulting and development
  • Executive Coaching
  • Team development
  • Counseling for individuals, families and couples
  • Psychological assessments
  • Presentations to groups or organizations on various psychological and wellness topics

Consultation, coaching or counseling can be helpful for most people at some point in their lives. People seek this resource for many reasons including:

  • Needing an objective person to help them work through thoughts about making a life change such as in their business, marriage or family
  • Dealing with bereavement and loss
  • Wanting to change something about themselves to improve relationships
  • Coping with a difficult situation
  • Healing from an emotional pain or trauma
  • Reducing negative symptoms such as those of anxiety or depression

We’re Here To Help

Making the decision to enter a helping relationship is important. It is not magic, but it is a useful vehicle for helping organizations, individuals, couples, and families find ways to change, adapt or heal. It requires a commitment of time, energy and effort to reap the benefits. While you do not have to have the answers to start , you do need to want things to be different enough to take that first step. It is also true that some clients already know what they want to change, but have not been successful yet, and are wise to seek help to achieve their goals. By reading the following pages I hope you understand that …

  • I am committed to practicing ethically and professionally, always concerned for my client’s welfare
  • I am dedicated to valuing each person for their individual differences, and embrace diversity
  • I view people holistically, with their uniqueness, and in their specific contexts.

Let’s Talk

If you are interested in working with me, please call to arrange for an initial consultation. Please leave a message, and I will call you back at the first opportunity (before 6:30 pm M-F). If PRIVACY is an issue, it is helpful if you tell me some times when it is most convenient for you to talk on the phone in private with me. This brief initial phone consultation is free and informational only and does not commit either party to a therapeutic relationship. If we both decide my services may be a good fit for your needs, an in-person consultation/intake will be scheduled. If not, I’m happy to try to provide a referral to other resources or professionals who might be a better fit for your needs.

If you need more information than provided here or you have additional questions, please let me know.

All the best

John Simmering, Ph.D.
