John McCabe is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 25 years of experience providing therapy to both individual adults and couples who are searching to change their lives.
In his practice, he has found that many people have histories of working hard over the years to build better lives and manage distressing psychological symptoms, yet remain stuck in frustrating patterns. John believes the problem is not in the effort they have put in to try and improve, but in the missing insights, and the lack of knowledge regarding the use of specialized change strategies.
There are blind spots, biases, and unknown blocks people have that act as the culprit in preventing desired change. Once a client starts therapy with John, he provides the insight-oriented interventions, and life coaching strategies needed, to uncover those hidden areas, and accelerate a process of self-improvement.
By creating a trusting environment, John supports exploration and understanding into the unique aspects of the person, and their set of problem areas. Key aspects of his practice involve helping clients develop the psychological strategies to reduce their symptoms, and improve their lives. Be it anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, career struggles, or poor self-esteem, John works to address the deeper causes of their unhappiness. This leads to enhanced well-being, and the unlocking of untapped potential.
