Eric is calm and understanding. He was a perfect match for me because of his background working with families of addicts. I feel safe in being myself and communicating my concerns. I’m grateful I found him.

Eric has been incredibly helpful to talk to. He trusts my perception of experiences, but also provides helpful insight and new perspectives to consider. He's patient and an excellent listener. With his help, I'm gradually overcoming my beliefs that have held me back.

Eric is very knowledgeable and understanding about the issues I am facing and has been quite the lifeline for me while coping with some very difficult issues and learning how to respond to them in healthy ways. I wanted to reach for a drink to cope today but instead, I wrote in my journal and shared it with him. He reads those long journal entries and gets a really solid grasp on what I am dealing with so we can address the issues during sessions. I am so grateful for his kindness and understanding.

He’s fabulous and he’s knowledgeable in ways I have never seen in any other therapist.
