He's been fantastic through three sessions. He's checking on me, providing me with resources and is helping me become a better version of myself.

I am extremely fortunate to have been matched with Chris with my first therapy experience. I have a range of topics I wish to discuss ranging from LGBTQ identity to Asian familial background and I was afraid that it may all be too much, but he handles them all wonderfully and helps me break those down into smaller bits for me to understand. He has knowledge in a variety of different subjects, and just the fact that there is someone out there who has an answer brought so much relief to me. He’d also admit it very truthfully when he isn’t sure to something, and that strengthens my trust in him.
He responds to my concerns via both text and call, and it makes me feel relieved to know that he’s always there for me. Another common experience in therapy must be the anxiety you’d feel, especially during your first time—Chris eased that in a very professional way, acknowledging the accomplishments I haven’t recognised myself and providing encouragements. He is very friendly to talk to and our conversations during the session are genuinely enjoyable as well. A therapist and their client don’t always match well together, but based on my experience alone I’d say you’re in great hands if you are with Chris.
