Patient and easygoing. No feeling of pressure on my side. He had great knowledge of the specific issues I was dealing with (substance abuse), and when I wanted to explore other issues peripheral/core to that initial issue Adam was extremely adaptable and accommodating. Good internet connection. Adam is also very good about allowing the session to flow slightly overtime, and so I never felt pressured to end a session on a hasty note.
