Written on Oct 05, 2022 after therapy with Eric for 1 year on issues concerning relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Eric is a great therapist and helped me get through a difficult time in my life. My relationship w my wife was in trouble and Eric helped me to appreciate her more and to unravel some complexities around my own issues in the process. In general, Eric is a great guy and he earned my trust quickly and I felt like I could open up to him easily. Thanks, Eric, I appreciate you!

Written on Dec 19, 2021 after therapy with Eric for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

I have improved dramatically over the last couple of months thanks to Eric's expertise. Understanding, compassionate and really efficient. All my sessions have brought me insights into what's going on in my head and how to deal with my life and getting closer to who I am. Thank you, Eric, for being good with words and very practical.

Eric truly cares. He checks in on me regularly, but more so if I don't schedule a session when I typically do. He remembers little details and follows up. He is so knowledgeable, eloquent and structured in his communication. He helped me get through a really really tough time. He got me to open my mind to things that I was not open to at all by helping me unconsciously see the benefits from a new angle. He is wonderful. I am lucky to have found him and plan to keep working with him for as long as I can.

I believe I have found someone who understands my needs and helps me navigate through my journey on my own terms. This was very important to me coming into therapy, especially given it’s an online platform. I’m glad I am able to invest my time into my mental health with Eric.

Work with me!
