Bio

John Ferreira earned his Ph.D. in Counselor Education & Supervision from Regent University. His current clinical and research interests are related to active-duty personnel and families, specifically, resilience factors related to successful overseas transitions for the military population. He actively advocates for individuals who experience relational type abuse and trauma.


Additionally, Ferreira has led a campaign and eventual signing of two military proclamations in 2019 related to domestic violence and child abuse. He also presents at several national and international conferences to help raise awareness on the various needs of the military population. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family in any capacity during his spare time.
