Dr. Smith is a genuine and caring person and has experience with the kind of issues I am dealing with. I have benefitted from just a couple of sessions with him, feeling more grounded, my mind is clear and I am much more in tune with how I feel. I would definitely recommend him as a counselor. He is professional and polite and felt safe to express myself honestly.
Dr. Smith is extremely understanding and respects where you are in your process. He makes it very easy to express your concerns. I also, love the fact that he can see where you have grown and where you are still in need; and offers wonderful exercises to help you heal.
Dr. Smith is very empathetic and thoughtful in his responses. Would definitely recommend!
