John Mohrbacher

My Background

I am an ADHD and executive function coach, tutor and therapist with masters’ degrees in clinical social work (LICSW) and education (M.Ed.). I specialize in helping children and adults with attention and executive functioning difficulties. Over the course of my career, I’ve developed a holistic approach that combines the services of a coach, tutor, and therapist to help clients organize and motivate themselves to perform more effectively at school, at work, and at home. Interventions typically focus on attention training, psychological adjustment, information processing, school/workplace accommodations, and relationship dynamics. Sometimes, I involve family members and significant others in the therapeutic process to maximize the potential for change and personal healing.

I have co-taught at Tufts University School of Education and spoken about my work to parents, teachers, students, and therapeutic professionals at venues in eastern Massachusetts.

I hold a Master of Education degree from Boston University (1998), followed a Master of Clinical Social Work degree (2001). Previous to my current work in counseling and education, I had a 13-year career in corporate communications in New York and Boston. I’m a father of two and live with my wife in Winchester, MA.

I see clients out of an office in my Winchester home on Mondays through Wednesdays and out of an office in Harvard, MA, on Thursdays and Fridays. Interested parties may contact me at 781-640-3509 or

I was fortunate enough to find John over a decade ago, when I was first beginning graduate school. I have seen him pretty steadily over the years. When I am going through difficult phases, such as major transitions in relationships or work, I see him more often. He has been terrific to work with!

The First Step

Our work together will start with a short intro call to discuss your or your child’s needs and my treatment approach. This intake process ensures that you have everything you need for our first meeting. I look forward to hearing from you.
