About John Anderson
Are you feeling sad or depressed and wondering if you will ever be happy again? Do you experience worry and anxiety that interferes with your ability to live a relaxed and productive life? Do you get so angry that it negatively impacts your relationships? Are you feeling hopeless about ever losing weight and living a healthy lifestyle? Do the overwhelming demands of work cause you so much stress that other areas of your life suffer? These are some of the questions clients come to me with when they are experiencing significant distress in their lives. As a licensed clinical psychologist with 15+ years of experience, I provide psychotherapy for clients experiencing a wide range of problems including depression, anxiety, anger, health related problems, stress management, work-life balance and life transition issues. I believe that therapy is a collaborative experience, in which we work together as a team to set agenda items, priorities and goals. My approach to working with you will be straightforward and practical, as I believe a problem-focused, solution-oriented perspective best enables improvement to take place as quickly as possible. We will work together to better understand how your thoughts influence your emotions, which in turn may impact your behavior in unproductive ways. We will also work on developing alternative ways of thinking, feeling and acting to help you deal more effectively with the problems in your life. In addition to focusing on the problems you face, I will make sure that we incorporate your unique set of strengths and abilities into our overall therapeutic plan of action.

Patient reviews for John Anderson, PhD
Totally comfortable experience with ample time to outline desired problems to address, provide context and receive feedback on how we could proceed. Highly recommended.
Very helpful and insightful
I have been seeing Dr. Anderson for a year and a half now. During that time he has helped guide me through a variety of issues - a painful break up with my partner, losing weight, anxiety at work. He is very insightful and offers practical tips for navigating life's challenges. He's compassionate, without letting you wallow too much in pain or grief. Instead he is always asking questions to help you move forward and live a richer life.
Dr. Anderson cares deeply about his patients and takes a unique, well balanced approach!
Dr. Johnson clearly explains his approach and makes sure it is a right fit on a case by case basis.
Highly professional and solution oriented therapist. His approach is grounded in proven techniques and patient led self-insight. Highly recommended
Super informative. I felt my meeting with Dr. Anderson was efficient in that we were able to lay out specific goals by the end of my first visit, which was what I had asked him to assist with beforehand. He is calm and clear in his communication which helped me logically connect the dots in my brain as to what next steps made the most sense for me. Absolutely would recommend.
My first section with Dr. Anderson was pretty good. He opened up the session with his approach towards therapy, "practical and solution oriented". After a long hour of talking, he summed up my situation very well, and gave me next step. He has shown great control of the whole process, making me feel at ease. I appreciate his ability to be caring but in a very rational way, and also to put pieces together in a very organizational way. But I do feel having hard time to expose emotion when your doctor is more on the rational side instead of the empathy side.
My appointment started right on time. He knew a lot about my specific condition, outlined a detailed plan for treatment and provided plenty of opportunities for me to ask questions and seek clarity. Looking forward to my next appointment!
John is simply the best. He wants to help you help yourself, and ultimately fix/mitigate the problem. This is what we all should want both in physical medicine and in psychological therapy.
I felt extremely comfortable with Dr. Anderson. He was very patient and understanding in regards to my concerns.
John is a very caring and nice guy. He listens well and gives great feedback. It's nice to hear someone else's point of view.
Very professional and forthright. Very smart.
