Allen Gholston responds in a timely manner to all questions, is open and accepting of all lifestyles and identities, and is compassionate towards their patients and their problems. Gholston's approach towards treating patients is oriented towards mindfulness, patient accountability in helping themselves with advice received through therapy, as well as general Cognitive Behavioral Therapy style treatment. Overall, they are an open minded, accepting, and caring therapist whom I would recommend to anyone who fits their treatment style and areas of expertise.
