John Eckenwiler is a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and has been practicing since 1985. His work experiences include community mental health centers, the cancer center for a general hospital, school-based programs, a runaway shelter for adolescents, assistant program director of a psychiatric hospital, psychiatric ward of a general hospital and private practice.

John now limits his practice to online therapy sessions only for the specialties listed below. His work over the years has included work with individual adults for a variety of issues, marriage and family issues, men’s issues, adolescents and school-aged children.
What are online sessions? In a nutshell, counseling discussions are held via video over a secured internet connection, most commonly with your computer. You and the therapist log in at the appointed time for a private session. The beauty of this is the convenience. You can be anywhere as long as you have a private place to log in. If you have some privacy, you can conduct your session at home, work or anywhere with an internet connection. But how effective is this? Several studies show it might even be more effective than conventional face-to-face sessions.
In a four-year Johns Hopkins study that included close to 100,000 veterans, the number of days that
patients werehospitalized dropped by 25 percent if they chose online counseling. This is slightly higher than the number of hospital visits experienced by patients who used face-to-face counseling

By far, John’s biggest goal is to fully see you as a person. If you’re not convinced someone really “gets” what is going on with you, all the talking in the world will go nowhere. This is the first step in getting momentum going for therapy. Concrete goals for therapy will be established together, and a logical, step-by-step approach to finding solutions will be followed. John’s work is eclectic and strength-based, meaning he explores with you how your strengths can be used to create lasting solutions.
