Adam has been a huge help and has been a pivotal part in my journey to self healing and self betterment. He’s been someone who feels like a good friend, who I can speak with about my issues and know that there’s no judgement. He’s given me a lot of great “phrases” that help remind me of things we’ve spoken about. And I always walk away with solid action items to take into the next week, meaning things to practice and implement while living life. Overall, this has been my first experience with therapy, and it’s been an extremely positive experience thanks to Adam.
