My name is John Knott, and I appreciate your giving me the opportunity to be of help to you.
I strongly believe you should feel comfortable with the therapist you choose, and hopeful about the therapy. When you feel this way, therapy is more likely to be very helpful to you. The type of therapy I do is called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, but I make liberal use of other treatment modalities and different approaches that I have studied and assimilated over the years. I view therapy as a partnership between us. You define the problem areas to be worked on; I use some special knowledge to help you make the changes you want to make. I have comprehensive training in working with marital concerns, domestic abuse, anger management, trauma, PTSD, depression and anxiety.
If you could benefit from a treatment I cannot provide, I will help you to get it. You have a right to ask me about such other treatments, their risks, and their benefits. Based on what I learn about your problems, I may recommend a medical exam or use of medication. If I do this, I will fully discuss my reasons with you, so that you can decide what is best. If you are treated by another professional, I will coordinate my services with them and with your own medical doctor.
I have a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and am a Licensed Certified Social Worker by the Arkansas State Board of Social Workers. I have been in practice for over 15 years and have experience in emergencies, acute treatment, out-patient treatment, and others. Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I spent eight years as a police officer and am well acquainted with the wide spectrum of problems and challenges faced by individuals and families.
