08 Mar John Briggs
Licensed Professional Counselor McKinney, TX
My name is John Briggs and I specialize in domestic violence and trauma issues with adolescents and adults. I am a graduate of Texas A&M University-San Antonio where I earned my Master of Arts in Counseling & Guidance. I was born and raised in San Antonio and have served in the military and with law enforcement, having served in the United States Coast Guard as a Corpsman and Aviation Medevac Specialist and I have worked with the Bexar County Hospital District Police Department and the San Antonio Police Department Family Assistance Crisis Team (FACT). I am currently working on a PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision through Texas A&M University-Commerce.
As a survivor of domestic violence, I believe I have a unique ability to connect with clients who may feel confused, afraid, embarrassed and alone. With my background in emergency services I can also help clients understand why they may face the hurdles they do with law enforcement and the courts.
I practice primarily from a Humanistic theory, believing that you can make the change you need and I strive to help clients find the strength they may not know they have. Your perspective is valid, you have value and you can overcome obstacles that may seem impossible with someone who believes in you.
