John Herrington MS, LPC

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have been practicing for 8 years. I have been a Clinical Therapist at Pine Grove Next Step since March 2011, where I currently serve during the day. Prior to joining Pine Grove Next Step, I served as a clinical therapist at Oak Arbor Transitional Recovery Program in Hattiesburg.

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology before earning my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology at The University of Southern MS in 2006. I have extensive experience working with clients suffering from addiction, severe mental illness and coping with life’s struggles. I have worked in various capacities with the local drug court programs, the Mississippi Department of Corrections, Vocational Rehabilitation, and the VA Medical Center.

Behind the Scenes

Practicing counseling has offered me a front row seat to see people change for the better. I am passionate about my job and look forward to helping you or someone you love. I live with my wife Lacey and in my free time I enjoy Southern Miss sports, running and spoiling our two dogs.
