John E. Lothes II (MA, LPA)

John E. Lothes II, M.A., L.P.A. – I attended Shepherd University (Shepherdstown, W.V.) and received my B.A. in psychology. While at Shepherd I worked for the WV Children’s Home Society and continued with them after graduation. After working for the WVCHS for awhile, I decided to further my education. So, I attended UNC Wilmington for graduate school. I graduated with a M.A. in Clinical Psychology (concentration in Substance Abuse Treatment) from UNCW.

At Delta Behavioral Health I currently help run the Partial Hospital Program; the Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program; and I run Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) groups; as well as do some individual work. In our programs, we help many people develop a life worth living. Whether we are dealing with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse or just learning to deal effectively with the daily stressors of life, we can help.

I also teach psychology courses and do research at UNCW and I work part time at Wilmington Health Access for Teens (W.H.A.T) as a statistician. Some other programs at WHAT that I have been involved in; include a male responsibility program (WISE Guys) and a tobacco prevention program for public schools in North Carolina (TRU campaign).

I would say in my free time, I train aikido. But, who really has “free” time. I currently hold the rank of Shodan (1st Degree Black Belt) and am the founder and faculty advisor to the UNCW aikido club. Along with my training I have traveled throughout the country to train and teach aikido based self-defense seminars. Recently, along with my aikido training, I have become interested in looking into and researching factors involving mindfulness.
