John Sholar


About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida with 20 years of experience in the counseling field. I have worked with individuals and families on a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, postpartum depression, grief and loss, and relationship issues. I use an interpersonal, relational approach in the counseling process with the goal of facilitating change through improved and enriched relationships. And I believe in the call to, "Bear one another's burdens, and thus fulfill the law of Christ", whether in the counseling relationship or life in general.

I am thankful to have received my counseling degree from Reformed Theological Seminary, as the program focused on instilling counseling skills with a Christian world view. I have experience in a variety of settings including hospitals, community mental health agencies, and call centers. My counseling approach draws influence from Person-Centered Therapy and Object Relations Therapy, as I believe that aspects of those approaches mirror the gospel message. And I also use Solution Focused Therapy for very specific needs or goals. I believe there is always hope for a better, more fulfilled life regardless of past circumstances or broken relationships.

John is a good listener. He asks good questions. He has diligently helped me to have a conversation about my thoughts and emotions.
