John Hochhalter, LCPC, NCC, Counselor in Meridian
I view each client as a unique individual and realize that no matter what their presenting concerns are their life experience is distinctly their own. I believe we each have the ability to discover the answers to the concerns and problems that trouble us. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve the challenges you face. We will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing more fulfilling relationships and happiness in your life.
I have experience working with couples who are encountering unhappiness, including problems with communication, trust, and intimacy. Additionally, I work with individuals suffering from depression, anxiety, panic disorder, grief & loss, OCD and several other personal and mental health issues.I tailor counseling that meets the particular needs of each person.
Couples often find themselves emotionally distant from each other. Communication becomes strained, and one may feel that their partner will not be there for them or understand them. Intimacy suffers, in addition to other aspects of the relationship. Love, trust, friendship, and passion can be rediscovered through couples counseling.
