Elrick is a wise and compassionate individual. He has a unique ability to express his perspective in ways that even a best friend might not. He has helped me understand so much about my own psyche. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a therapist, especially with a similar background to me.

Polite and professional

Written on Jan 17, 2024 after therapy with Elrick for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, anger management, and bipolar disorder

I've spoken to Elrivk twice do far and have had great results both times. He's really good and bringing things into perspective and stopping a ruminating spiral. I love his real world examples and sense of humor.

Elrick is a kind and compassionate individual. But is not afraid to tell you how it is either. He is comforting when he needs to be and assertive when he needs to correct your thinking. He has strong conviction when it comes to Christian morals and principles in guiding his therapy sessions, but I would recommend him even if you are not Christian as well.
