Boesky helps me a lot with stuff that I can use inside the cage, but also with my overall life. He helps me understand a lot more about myself and where I’m at in my life. Having him in my corner and helping me through the psychological stand point of everything is definitely a blessing.

Thank you John, thank you for showing up in my life in such a authentic caring way. Thank you for showing me friendship and validation as only another man could have at a time I desperately needed that kind of love, friendship and validation. While I realize it’s your profession, I realize you stretched beyond and extended hope and light … for that I’ll always be grateful. My daughter thanks you, my future partner thanks you …… I thank you. I’m the man I’ve wanted to be, the man I knew I could be and actually was all along.

Finding the right Therapist is probably just as hard as getting over an issue. I was lucky enough to strike gold on my first try with John. I have been seeing John for over 5 years and I couldn’t be happier. He is honest, knowledgeable, compassionate, and a great listener. He has talked me through some rough times and even just times when i need to talk to someone outside of my circle. He has integrity and makes you believe in yourself and ultimately learn to deal with issues yourself. If you are looking for someone to talk to give John a try you wont be dissapointed.

I’ve been working with John for about three years now. I even left San Diego two years ago and have continued phone sessions with him because I feel so strongly that he has helped learn about myself and make great strides in personal growth. Choosing a therapist that is a good match for you can be a challenging process; I’ve met with others in the past that didn’t quite get it like John does. John has a keen sense for understanding the underlying issues at hand and gently guiding me to new perspectives that help me, my career and my relationships. I never feel judged or over-analyzed by John. He has given me “homework” or things to practice to change habits in thinking, which is great for me since I’m a “do-er.” He has helped me to honor my feelings, my personal truth and overall helped me to become a better, happier, healthier, more self-aware person!

John is an insightful and intuitive psychotherapist who is gifted in his skill level and is just as outstanding in terms of his compassion and caring.
– Len Genduso (Psychotherapist at Columbia University Dept. of Psychiatry)
I cannot express enough gratitude for the compassion, support and faith John has had in me and helped provide me with over the last 7 months since I began meeting with him. John has literally helped me turn my life a completed 180 (starting from the inside out) and I will be forever indebted to him. John’s enthusiasm, listening skills, and knowledge far surpasses any of the experiences I have had while being in ‘therapy’, and I value every moment I have with him. There are many ‘attributes’ that I love about John…I could literally go on and on…but what I love the most is how non-judgmental he has proven to be. I’ve encountered therapists who have tried to blame my ‘issues’ on this or that, but John never has. He has taken the time to really get to know me and has helped me realize my worth. Slowly but surely, John has guided me in bringing back my individuality …and as he would say my ‘free will’. John is engaging, asks probing questions and honestly cares about his clients. I feel so safe with him and can’t say enough amazing things about John. I HIGHLY recommend giving him a shot (if you’re on the fence)…believe me, it will probably be the best decision you will ever make for yourself.

Couples Therapy / Group Therapy / Individual Growth…
I have been a client of John’s for a year now, and I can say with all certainty that he has helped me improve the quality of my life like no other therapist has. I have been seeing therapists, psychiatrists, even dabbled in psycho analysis at a top notch Hospital in Boston, for over ten years. But the improvement I’ve seen and feel after having worked with John is truly unparalleled. He is a great therapist whose sole purpose is his clients well being. He is focused on creating change and does not dilly dally in the process. He is extremely generous with his time, in many cases exceeding the one hour session time. John has a keen sense of the mind body relationship, and utilizes this in practice. He is a great communicator, healer, and compassionate listener. He sits across from you as an equal, as someone who truly understands what difficulties you are experiencing. I am currently attending individual sessions along with my wife as well as attend a Men’s Group that he organizes on a biweekly basis. Together, I have grown as a person, a man, a husband and a father. I have more to learn from John, but I know that he is guiding me in the right direction to achieve all that I can in my life. I recommend John to anyone who is brave enough to take the next step in their lives. John will no doubt help you. He is that good.

Sports Psychology / Coaching…
As a coach of the some of the top athletes in the sport of Ultimate Fighting, I am always looking for way to improve performance for both them and myself. About 3 years ago I started working with John to help me understand and control both my anxiety due to being a public figure and anxiety due to competition. I have seem major improvements in my performance as a coach and in my communications skills with both my team and the public. I have sent numerous athletes to work with John and they have all been able to maximize their athletic potential by working on their mental game! Remember competition is 90% Mental 10% Physical so why don’t we train our mind to its full potential!!

Individual Counseling / Personal Growth…
John became my therapist during a time in my life, when turmoil and chaos were the best words that described my every day; at that time I really needed someone who could help me change things around and head in a different direction. John was one of the very few nonjudgmental people that I have met so far, who made me feel comfortable talking about what troubled me, and what I wished to change in my life. At this point in time, if I had to summarize all of John’s qualities into one word, I guess I would say FRIEND. Talking to him about my problems feels just like talking to a friend, who genuinely wants what’s best for me. He is a caring therapist who is determined to help his clients in each and every way he can. I feel very lucky to know him.
I understand that each of us has different issues that we deal with every day, but whether going through a rough time or if you just want someone who you can really talk to, I encourage you to give John a try. No matter from which walk of life you come, he can help you get to a better place. I promise you that after sitting down with John, you won’t look for another therapist.

Choosing a therapist or counselor is obviously a very personal choice and there has to be a certain degree of chemistry for the relationship to work. But even if you click with a therapist, you won’t get much out of them unless they are also good at what they do. John Boesky is very good at what he does. I have worked with him in the context of individual counseling and a bi-weekly men’s group for over 3 years and he has been instrumental in my personal growth and helping me weather the travails of a difficult divorce. Give him a call; see if you click.
– Brian B.
I have know John for over five years. He is a skilled therapist with an expertise across a wide range of therapeutic tools to help people both overcome their personal challenges and reach their goals. John helps his clients to become more authentic, congruent, emotionally intelligent, self-loving, and spiritually grounded. John is a wonderful traditional therapist and mentor and also has significant experience in working with athletes looking to achieve their best. I recommend John to anyone seeking a competent therapist.
– Jared W.
John Boesky is a brilliant therapist. The reason why he is so effective at what he does is because of his in-depth knowledge of the inner workings of the human psyche and his belief in wholeness and immeasurable worth of the human soul. He works with his clients on both levels, empowering them to heal and grow on their own rather than merely help piece and bandage together the broken parts. As soon as I enter his office, I can feel safe and secure to let down my guard and talk about whatever is on my mind without fear of judgement. His complete presence and insightful questions help me overcome a life long fear that has kept me from living life to the fullest. We accomplished this in one session. If you are looking to not only heal but thrive, John can help get you to that next level.

Group Therapy / Men’s Issues…
If you are looking for a therapist in San Diego then you should try John Boesky. I have been dealing with therapists for over six years with family members and I have recently joined his men’s group. We have found John to be the most insightful, effective and available therapist we have encountered. I would recommend John Boesky for any individual or family therapy needs.
– Jay N.

– Gail B.
I have been a client of John Boesky’s for over 3 years. During that time, John has done an incredible job of facilitating my personal growth and getting me through some very challenging times in my life. He is patient, compassionate and very insightful. I went to several other therapists in the San Diego area before finding John and he is head and shoulders above the others in terms of his professional skills. In addition to being a skilled therapist, you would have to search long and hard for a nicer person. I recommend him without the slightest reservation.

Individual Therapy/Group Therapy…
I have been working with John for over a year now and I can’t possibly imagine where I would be without him. John creates an environment that is safe to express and be your authentic self and he facilitates that authentic journey right by your side. I have been able to make so much progress and growth under John’s guidance and will continue to into the future.
His office is a very calming and comfortable atmosphere. John has allowed me to set the pace and he challenges you if you want to be challenged and is a voice of reason when you need to hear something. It’s not what you want to hear all the time, it’s what you need to hear that allows one to grow.
I have been on such a journey over several years and personal growth is at the top of my list. To be a better person today that I was yesterday, to be authentic and to realize my gift to the world is powerful. John has continued to reinforce our work together over and over again.
John is very good at recognizing my limiting beliefs and challenging those beliefs when they need to be challenged. I can’t continue to grow into the future without taking a look back into my past to see where some of those beliefs formed and now need to change going forward. You can change your map of the world if you want to. I have no doubt that John can help guide you to be your best self possible. He is a good man!
– Brett C.
John is a very attentive therapist with a wonderful way of working with patients. He uses a number of powerful intervention techniques matched to your individual needs. No cookie cutter approach here!
– Rick W.
I’ve been seeing John weekly for about a year now, and I have to say that he’s been wonderful. First off, I was skittish about seeing a therapist – I thought I could handle things on my own. After a while it became apparent that I couldn’t. After ‘shopping’ around for the right therapist, I knew it was a perfect fit. I was going through some personal crises in my life, and I felt immediately that I was in capable hands. He was/is insightful, caring, and articulate. He always goes the extra mile and his heart is in his profession. I would highly recommend John to anyone!

Group Therapy / Personal Growth…
I have had the pleasure to experience John as a counselor individually and as a group facilitator over the past 5 months. When I originally went to see him, it was because I felt something I wasn’t conscious of was holding me back from attaining a particular goal. With this in mind, John used a technique called Voice Dialogue. I became aware of a part of me, “the voice”, that was holding me back. I was then able to make a friend with that part of me and move easily forward to reach the goal. It was a great beginning to working with John.
John’s gentle, respectful guidance and leadership create a safe atmosphere – which is necessary for healing and growth work. He also has a way of presenting new concepts in a clear, understandable fashion. I feel comfortable and at ease when we are working.
I have found that those in the helping professions that are dedicated to their own healing and development, provide the best help to me. John is one of these healers. I admire him and look forward to future sessions with him!
