About me

I have been a counselor for over 45 years. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Mental Health Service Provider with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I have worked with couples regarding: relationships, domestic violence, and co-dependency. I find it important to briefly work on each partner's individual problems that they have brought to the relationship. Many individual problems were created in childhood. I have worked in several church settings as a counselor and as a minister. Even though I have been married to my wife for 50 years, life has often been difficult and confusing for me and family. I believe clients find me compassionate and non-judgmental. Perhaps you have issues that are overwhelming. I have discovered that it is never too late to change, to walk a more positive and happy life. Together, we can develop a plan and work through your stressful situations to recovery and healing.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. John Slate. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Regain might be different.

Only have had a couple of conversations so far and have a very good feeling about the help he can offer. He listens good to me, and i think we on the right track.

Dr Slate has made us feel comfortable to be open and honest. He has a gift in his ability to speak the truth in a non-judgemental way. He has a way of explaining things that make you see things in a different way. He has referred back to prior homework as well as appointments which makes us feel like he cares and knows how to help. We would highly recommend him for couples who are looking to communicate better.
