Benjamin Allen was excellent at listening and making me feel comfortable off the hop. He is very professional while also being very personable. I felt understood.
He was great at giving feedback and tools to help with any questions I had. Has good worksheets that help identify the thoughts and feelings I have at times that are hard to understand any other time.
If you have a chance to work with Benjamin, you will be good hands and taken care of.
