“As a single mother of a teenage boy, Mr. Johnathan Bennett has been a blessing and an answered prayer for my son and I. Growing up without his father present in his life has never been easy for him. As a young boy, I knew it affected him in a major way along with a close family member's death and other life issues. I didn't know the extent that it affected him until Sunday, June 30, 2019, when I discovered that my son had purposely harmed himself.
I felt helpless, hopeless, afraid, and sad, but I knew I had to get him help as soon as possible. He had been to counseling when he was younger, but I never imagined we would be facing this.
I prayed and asked God to help me find a man that my son would feel comfortable talking to, someone my son would listen to and would take his advice to change his life for the better, and most importantly someone who believed in GOD and would give godly counsel.
I started my search that same day on google and found several different counselors, but it was something about Mr. John that led me to call the office. I know it was GOD. The next morning I called the office and made an appointment for my son to speak with Mr. John.
Making that call was one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life for my son and I. Mr. John was very patient with my son and I. He was also very understanding, considerate, and an amazing listener. Not only did he coach my son on how to cope with his feelings, he also assisted me in ways to speak with my son when an issue occurs and work through those issues.
He was available to assist us with any issue that we could not handle and would work with us as an unbiased mediator. Mr. John helped my son to see the value of life, build his self-esteem, and most importantly the importance of a relationship with GOD.
As a woman of faith, I am beyond grateful for Mr. John because I know for a fact (without him even saying) that he prays for us and he genuinely has our best interest at heart. As GOD is the head of our lives, he also incorporated and reminded us of God's word, especially during those hard times.
I truly thank GOD for Mr. John and I highly recommend him, especially if you are seeking godly counsel. Not only did he make a difference in our lives, with GOD's help he saved my son's life. We are grateful!”
“During a difficult time for our family, we all struggled with anger, depression, and anxiety. We couldn’t take it anymore and needed to find help. That’s when we found Jonathan. He listened and provided us with strategies to help ourselves. As a family, we felt we finally had hope and ultimately are all doing very well.
If it were not for Jonathan’s caring heart and willingness to walk alongside us during that difficult time, we would have lost hope quickly. We cannot thank him enough for investing in our family and stepping into the mess to bring order and healing. Jonathan has been a blessing to us.”
“I started seeing John around 7 months ago for therapy to seek help for anxiety, grief and depression. Within the the first few video sessions, John and I were able to figure out a therapy plan and end goals. With the tools I’ve learned in therapy, it really has opened up my life to living a life that is not dictated by my mental illness.
Therapy is a challenge, but it’s the most rewarding challenge. I have been able to move ahead in life, and I’m incredibly thankful for John.”
