In such a short time he has helped me, I've been able to dig deep in myself to see where certain problems arise from. His method and approach is strong and focused, the pain that will hit you while in session will subside, it's part of the process. He's the best therapist I've ever had, he really listens.

He never lets me down. He’s here when I’m not here for myself. He knows how to help if you’re open to getting the help, it’s important to know that if you really want to change in life then you have to put that work in as well.
