Aldo is a passionate and joyful expert with a unique skill set for addressing underlying issues. He has helped me significantly in a short period of time offering me new frameworks of viewing the world and a set of ongoing therapeutic tools. Within a matter of months my sense of self worth, interpersonal and workplace relationships have all become stronger and bolder. I am grateful to have an experienced therapist like Aldo in my life. We also laugh a ton together and he allows me to not take things so seriously.

Excellent therapist, he speaks directly and clearly; he understands how you feel and he knows how he could help you rebuild yourself (reprogram your mind.)
