Great service

Written by K.Y. on Jul 05, 2022 after therapy with Eric for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Eric is someone that even if he wasn’t a therapist, you know you would feel good just to have the opportunity anytime to speak with him. As a therapist he gives the best advice about how to deal with situations as they come. He listens and remembers what you tell him about your life and always has a positive way of letting you know how to overcome. In my opinion, there could be no better therapist someone could have, and feel lucky to have been assigned him as my therapist

Eric is a great listener and has excellent insight. He always leaves me with at least one good point to ponder and reflect on between appointments and always helps me process difficult situations. I highly recommend him, especially to middle aged men.

My sessions with Erick have been great! He is a great attentive listener and helps you feel understood. I’ve had breakthrough moments during our sessions that have offered perspectives that I needed to hear in order to organize/understand my thoughts and feelings. Most importantly, I didn’t feel shamed for my feelings or thoughts.

Written by E.R. on Jan 08, 2022 after therapy with Eric for 3 months

I very much appreciated my time work with Eric. He has helped me to reframe some of the aspects of my life and understand them in a more mature way. The key thing about our experience together is Eric having opinions, i.e. having his own personal human take on things as opposed to coming at everything from Therapy Space. To work with somebody that values the Genuine and Authentic as Eric does is a joy.

Eric is a very knowledgeable counselor. He can easily interpret your own understanding of the feelings you are going through and help you put them into more meaningful terms that you can do something to work on. He knows a variety of different ways that you can do things to help yourself, and he applies them to you in an integrative way. He is also understanding, and will always listen to what you have to say. I definitely recommend him.
