Written by N.I. on Jun 03, 2021 after therapy with Carlos for 2 weeks on issues concerning lgbt

Carlos has been very helpful to me in the short time I've been speaking with them, every time we talk I get insightful advice and it really feels like they hear what I'm saying. Having a counsellor who is familiar with my experience as an LGBTQ+ person has been incredible as well.

Carlos is a passionate and kind person with a lot of empathy. He's down to earth, and it's extremely easy to open up to him and start conversing about my life or personal struggles. His cheerful demeanor is infectious and makes our conversations shine with positivity.

Carlos is awesome!

Written by B.I. on Nov 14, 2018 after therapy with Carlos for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

Carlos has really helped me a lot. From helping me sort through some heavy traumas to just reminding me that I'm okay and doing well - I haven't been this confident and self aware in years!

He will help you to set short and long term goals, listening to any ranting and raving you need to do and is generally just a nice person to talk with.

Also - check out his YouTube channel, his videos are a winning combo of interesting and entertaining!

I definitely love working with Carlos. It feels like I was talking with a really fun friend, who's very understanding and empathetic, and at the same time, offers really great advice/suggestions to your problem. He also made me realized that I have more qualities than I ever give credit to myself for. Thanks for everything!

I really like the style of the help. Messages are sent in a timely manner, and replies are always non-judgmental and understanding.

Written by F.R. on Mar 18, 2018 after therapy with Carlos for 3 weeks on issues concerning lgbt, and relationship

Carlos is amazing. He is very organized and always reply very quick. Every time I had a live session he was very punctual and addressed all the issues I was concerned about. I completely recommend him.

Written by L.U. on Feb 28, 2018 after therapy with Carlos for 2 months on issues concerning intimacy-related, eating, and self esteem

Carlos gets to the point. Is it always comfortable (for me) to think about and seek answers to the difficult questions - hell no! [NOT saying Carlos is making me feel uncomfortable - NOT AT ALL!] Is it necessary, and more importantly...is it working? Hell yes! He is patient, encouraging and just a nice human being who I feel absolutely comfortable with. Thank you, Carlos.

Carlos, is an amazing therapist! He goes deeper into understanding what’s really going on and he gives the best advice. He makes you think a little bit which is also a good thing. He truly tries to understand and you can tell he really cares. We love him!

We haven't been working together long, but I already feel like we've got more of a rapport than I've had with any of my previous therapists.
