John Hawkins View Specialties

John is the founder of the Center for Life Design and Gateway Counseling Center. The Center was started with the belief that people have a special design given to them by their Creator. Unfortunately the reality of life is that most everyone has experienced some type of brokenness in his or her life that interferes with this design. We live out this design in the context of relationships. Life is about relationships. The problem is that our brokenness interferes with both our design and relationships, which then causes us to be emotionally unhealthy.

The Center is a safe place where John and the other therapists use the best of psychology and timeless spiritual truths to restore emotional health. The Center deals with addictions, depression, anxiety, martial and family issues, personality disorders, grief, and stress just to name a few of the common issues that complicate life.

John has 40 years of experience as a pastor, counselor, and therapist. He has traveled internationally and worked in a multicultural setting so he is aware of the various cultural differences among people. He has been married to his wife Charlotte for 55 years. They have four grown children and 13 grandchildren. He understands the family and the stress of life in today's world. He has a compassion for people and a desire to help them restore their life to wholeness and its full potential.

John understands that reaching out for help in counseling is a very difficult thing for most people He believes the most important ingredient for achieving success in counseling is the connection between the client and the counselor.
