I’ve had only a handful of session with Emmanuel and they have been very informational and insightful. He is very credible and understanding and has given me exercises and perspectives that have helped my overall communication and way of processing. I’m looking forward to continue my journey with his assistance.

Emmanuel has been fantastic to work with so far. He has been very professional and is easy to talk to. He’s a good communicator. For example, we both know sports and he’s used sports analogies to get some key points across and really hit home with me. I’d definitely recommend him, especially to other younger men like me

Emmanuel is in all honesty an amazing therapist overall an amazing person. He thinks about every perspective and it’s very helpful, he’s supportive in every way, so kind hearted and comforting to talk to. As someone who always had problems talking about their feelings Emmanuel quickly made me feel comfortable with talking about it wether it’s tough to talk about or about anything else. I appreciate Emmanuel for being who he is and I’m happy to know that when I reached out for help Emmanuel was there and ready to help me.

He is a chill guy. Knows how to approach a session and is not gone deaf. Great at hearing out what you want to convey. Would definitely see him again.
