Mental Health Counseling
John Wepner, MA, LCMHCA, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate, graduated in 2020 from Lenoir Rhyne University in Hickory, NC with a M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. He is a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a current member of the American Counseling Association (ACA). John has many additional years of training in body-mind facilitation and depth psychology with PsychoEnergetics.
John works with adults and teenagers with many diverse backgrounds and ages, who are dealing with anxiety, depression, family and relationship issues, grief and loss, life changes and stress. John explores with clients what is underneath troubling thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and to help understand how the past influences the present. He focuses towards increasing self-awareness, through the body-mind connection, and gaining insight into the self, which provides context and opportunity to make new choices.
John values genuineness, empathy, and unconditional positive regard in working with clients. He seeks to build a collaborative therapeutic relationship that honors what clients have lived through and he holds the possibility for the client to practice new life skills both in the therapy room and in one's life.
John specializes in psychodynamic psychotherapy and body-centered psychotherapy. Both help explore our unconscious processes and help to bring them to consciousness. Body-centered psychotherapy is the exploration of our inner feeling states and emotions that our bodies experience, often outside of our conscious thought.
Counseling, consultation, psychotherapy and body-centered psychotherapy sessions are available with John for individuals, couples, families, and groups.
