I have been in therapy for many years prior, but he is hands down the best mental health professional I ve ever had. I ve never felt so comfortable and understood. He explained every question I had in a very understandable way. He never once made me feel like my issues were things that other people didn t experience; he made me feel like that while my symptoms exist, we can find a solution together to help.
