Personal Bio


Do you find that the challenges of day-to-day living prevent you from reaching you highest potential?

Do you feel as though you could improve your relationships, achieve more in your career and personal development but find that you often encounter roadblocks?

Are you overwhelmed with life’s responsibilities and want to find healthy ways to cope with the pressure?

John’s mission is to help you remove those obstacles that prevent you from reaching you greatest potential.  He provides you with opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of these pitfalls, which will ultimately lead you to greater fulfillment.

 John Kovac, M.A., RMFT, is a psychotherapist and counsellor working with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. He is a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist with the Ontario Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and received his Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago. He is also a clinical member of both the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT) and the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists, and Psychotherapists (OACCPP).

John has been working in the field of Marriage and Family Therapy for 8 years seeing men, women, children, adolescents, couples and families. Some areas of specialization include:

·    healing of couple and family relations

·    marriage enrichment and preparation

·    separation adjustment

·    adjustments to major life events and orientations

·    decisions

·    grief and loss

·    parent/child relations

·    remarried family issues

·    addictions of self or significant others

·    family of origin issues (e.g. sexual abuse, adult children of alcoholics)

·    intergenerational issues

·    assertiveness issues

·    depression, anxiety and worry


John takes a holistic approach to counselling and psychotherapy by gathering information, which gives him a full picture of who you are within the context of your environment.  Because your perceptions form your reality, his purpose is to help you become aware of those perceptions that hinder you from achieving your goals whether they be a desire for greater connectedness with your spouse and family or redefining your career objectives.

Once you become aware of that which stands in your way, John works together with you to develop a deeper understanding of why you have these self-sabotaging beliefs. Once you take ownership of a situation it then empowers you to make much needed positive changes and enables you to acquire that which is most important to you.

Paradoxically, you already have much of what you need to achieve your goals.  John simply helps you remove obstacles so you can learn more about yourself, the challenges you face and how to create solutions that will lead to greater peace and well-being.

John has a full playroom for children and uses attachment based approaches, sand therapy, art, and play.

Clinical services are provided in four languages including English, Serbian, Hungarian, and Croatian.

John has been married for over 30 years and has two children.

He is currently providing counselling and psychotherapy to clients in Durham region (Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa).
