John DeMarco, MEd, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Pompton Plains
ANGER MANAGEMENT and COUPLES COUNSELING are areas I specialize in. It is important to me that my clients know that I am caring and respectful of them. I have a practical approach to therapy consisting of two steps: insight and skills development. I believe that it is not enough for clients to develop insight into themselves and others, but that it is also essential for them to develop new skills. Having a focus on skills enables clients to more rapidly make the changes they want and to feel and be their best. (More details at
As a therapist I am friendly, warm, nonjudgmental, and I have a sense of humor. I use Imago Relationship Therapy and Family Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Psychosocial Education, Parent Coaching, as well as many other methods of therapy. I am the author of the book: "Desensitizing Anger: A Comprehensive Anger Management Guide."
My strengths are in treating anger, difficult marriages, and parent-child relationship issues. I am a published author of five books, which focus on adolescent intervention and prevention programs. I am a Hazelden author, and I continue to write on topics about relationships and emotional health.
