Don made a point of hearing and understanding the kind of help I was seeking. His approach was unique from others I’ve experienced not only because of his techniques that I could actively practice, but because he is a down-to-earth, genuine listener. The tools he taught me have helped me tremendously. His kind energy gave me to confidence to open up and try new ways to manage the stresses I was struggling with.
Don is very easy to talk to, he explains himself clearly and makes you feel comfortable. You get what you give and if you allow Don to listen he will give you ways to manage yourself.
Don is a wonderful therapist. He has given me great and very useful advise, he always responds in a timely manner, and he is extremely personable.
Don is attentive, empathetic and encouraging. I am truly thankful for him and the safe space he is able to create.
Don is a very wise man and gives me tools that I can use immediately which is great. Thanks Don for your help and guidance.
I feel safe and cared for when sharing with Don, and his listening skills are tuned to help me - even in places I was not previously aware of. I am very glad I took the time to reach out for help, and grateful people like Don are there.
Don instantly tapped into my past, present and future.
He urges me to stay in touch between sessions and he makes me feel understood.
I have enjoyed this method of therapy (tele therapy and dm-ing via the app) compared to my limited in person therapy experiences.
Don listens, pays attention and makes solid, practical recommendations to help you work through the challenges you are facing.
Don is a great help I recommend this therapist to anyone who needs therapy. :)
