Thank you for connecting with Summit View Counseling. We’d like to introduce ourselves and tell you a little bit about the services we offer. As you well know, the past couple of years have taken its toll on just about everyone. Mental health struggles have risen to unprecedented levels. Anxiety, depression, grief, relational problems, and addictions have escalated all over the country. It is important to have professional help to turn to when life starts to feel out of control. That is what Summit View Counseling is all about.

John Parker has over ten years of experience as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. As a “person focused” mental health professional, we don’t believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach to therapy. Rather, we pay special attention to my client’s unique situation and tailor a treatment plan that fits their specific needs.

To provide the best possible care for my clients, we have four specific areas of specialty that we offer. We have specialized training in these areas, and are particularly passionate about helping with these types of concerns.

Couples Counseling

Working with couples is an area of passion for us. It’s important that each partner feel safe and supported while we collaboratively work toward your own stated goals. We use a mixture of the Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT) as well as the Gottman Method to help couples work through conflict and achieve the kind of relationship they want.

Trauma and PTSD

We pay particular attention to past relationship wounds and trauma. Having worked at The Meadows for over five years, we have extensive training and experience in the treatment of trauma and PTSD.

Sexual Addiction Treatment

As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) who has worked directly with Dr. Patrick Carnes, we are able to work with addicted individuals as well as their partners. We have a sex-positive, non-shaming approach to the treatment of sexual addiction and make it a priority to accurately assess and treat each person’s unique situation within a safe environment.

Spiritual Reclamation

We enjoy working with people from all different religious traditions and believe that religious faith can be a source of comfort and meaning for many people. We also know that some individuals have had painful and even abusive experiences from their religious community. We are a safe and experienced resource for those who are deconstructing their religious beliefs and want to find healing.

We’ll share a little more detail about each of my areas of specialty in some upcoming blogs. If you or someone you know would benefit from any of my services, feel free to contact me. You can give us a call at (602) 824-8312
