John W. Hall, PhD, LP​​​​​​
clinical psychology & hypnotherapy​​​​​​​​​​
My name is John Hall, and I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of North Carolina.  I am a member of the American Psychological Association Mecklenburg Psychological Association , and North Carolina Society for Clinical Hypnosis .  From my practice in the Elizabeth neighborhood of Charlotte, I offer psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, clinical video telehealth, and consultation to a limited number of individuals and couples. 

My therapeutic style tends to be direct, blunt, caring, and practical. My professional interests include men's issues (particularly issues common to male survivors of childhood sexual abuse), issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity, medical and disability-related issues (particularly around HIV and chronic pain), death/grief, spirituality and religion in mental health, and ADHD. My therapeutic orientation is decidedly ecclectic, with a sound training in behavioral, cognitive, systems, and psychodynamic theories.  I am also trained in clinical hypnotherapy.  For a more complete background, you can see my curriculum vitae here .

If you are looking for a therapist to provide a comfortable space and simply ask you how you feel, you will probably dislike my style. Conversely, if the thought of sitting and being asked how you feel for the better part of an hour has kept you from therapy, you might want to give me a try. I am not a fan of therapy for therapy's sake and tend to work towards identifiable and attainable goals. Feelings, beliefs, thoughts, patterns of behavior, prior learning, and societal/familial pressures may all be considered as we work towards these goals. 

If you believe that you might be interested in therapy with me, please contact me. As I am usually in with patients, you will probably have to leave a confidential voice mail, or email can sometimes be an ok way to initiate contact. In our initial contact, I will seek to determine whether your needs and my skills are a good fit.
