John Mitchell, LICSW
Helping people overcome life-altering challenges has taught me that with support and guidance the human spirit is resilient and strong. By building upon our strengthens, we learn to envision, energize and create our true life potential. Therapy is merely a process of helping people to enhance their emotional, cognitive, physical, spiritual and social health, so that they may achieve the lasting well-being and happiness which we all deserve.

John Townsend, LICSW
I approach my work at American Help Centers in a friendly and accepting manner. It is important to find the strengths in people and help them build on these parts of their personalities. Also, it is important that I understand what has helped the person cope with their problems in the past. Through this process, people's challenges and the options for change will become clear. Counseling helps to make these changes clear and realistic.
  • John has been a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker since 1985. He has worked in both private and public hospitals, clinics, and services for over 35 years. Thirty-three of these years in the Fall River community.
