About Me
John Brunty Headshot

Hello, I'm John, and I grew up in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  I am a certified peer support specialist and life coach. As a dedicated dog dad to Nell and Stella, I've learned the importance of compassion and responsibility.

My sobriety date is September 30, 2003. I see my purpose as being a guide for those who once walked the same roads I have. I relish one-on-one connections, introducing individuals to the gifts of sobriety and walking them through the various stages of sobriety.

I have a BA degree in English from the University of South Carolina. I have lived in Manhattan, Prague, and Charleston, SC, before moving to my current city, Columbia, SC. I have worked primarily in the restaurant industry, but also as a realtor, designer and on movie and television sets as a production assistant and extra.

My experience spans a wide spectrum, from supporting those battling substance use disorder with alcohol, drugs, compulsive spending and debting to those facing life's everyday obstacles. I am committed to helping people build self-esteem, overcome addictions, and tackle mental health issues.

Since getting sober, I have learned the art of unconditional self-love, a gift I aspire to share with my clients. My innate talent lies in listening with empathy and holding people accountable. I'm here to inspire greatness in those navigating their own unique journeys.

In my spare time, you'll find me strolling with my dogs in the morning and evening, MAYBE trying to cook or feeding my addiction to crime TV shows and action movies.
