John Brolley is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor based in Frankfort, IL. John works with individuals across the lifespan, with a focus on those struggling with anxiety, depression, overall performance, including career, scholastic, athletic. Although many of his clients have found great success in their careers or academically, they often struggle to feel connected in their relationships or in finding comfort, peace in their daily lives. John enjoys working with clients who are facing moments of transition, which may include relationship struggles, career stagnation, athletic performance which often result in feelings of sadness, worry, and low self worth.
John’s approach is largely informed by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, an evidence-based approach which places emphasis on helping clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, so that they can begin to make targeted change.
John is focused on ensuring that his clients see real progress: his style is interactive, non-judgmental, and his positions clients as the experts on where they are now, and where they want to go. John frames his therapy in three distinct and fluid parts: 1. Exploration: where John works to establish trust and rapport; 2. Insight :where John helps his clients to connect the dots, enhance insight into how their past has affected their present thoughts and actions; and 3. Action: where John and his clients decide on specific change which typically involves treatment planning complete with goals, tasks, and parameters surrounding time frames.
John’s first priority in starting with a new client is ensuring that they feel safe, heard, and like an equal partner in the therapeutic process. As a seasoned telehealth provider, John offers the convenience of Zoom calls, phone calls, and Skype
