Ted is a great responded that seems to know how to tackle several complicated issues regarding relationships. He always listens to the problems and is really interested in getting to the bottom of why I feel the way I do. Honestly talking to him helps get a lot of negative energy out of my system and is often therapeutic.

Ted helped me work through a lot of different issues (anxiety, relationship, etc. ) that I had been struggling with for a very long time. He really took the time to listen which helped him pinpoint the underlying problems I was dealing with, and solved them. He is very good at saying the right things to help you understand and work through the feelings that are causing strain. I would highly recommend Ted.

I have been working with Ted for a few weeks now. I am brand new to counseling and Ted has made me feel so comfortable. He is very understanding and a great listener. I feel like after each session I gain a little more clarity that I'm seeking with my situation. I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about counseling in general. I feel like the whole experience depends on your counselor and Ted is absolutely great!! Highly recommend him!

Written by M.O. on Aug 10, 2017 after counseling with Ted for 2 weeks on issues concerning eating

I was not even sure if I was ready to seek help again, but figured I would try just so I could say I had exhausted my options. Enter Ted. I was weary of a male therapist but his immediate responsiveness and down to earth way of reframing the problems that are dogging me earned my trust. I have hope that I'll recover from binge eating; this never felt like a possibility to me before.
