Eric is absolutely phenomenal!

This is my first time committing to therapy and he has made me very comfortable… He truly has a gift to carefully listen and provides great analogies that you personally can relate with, to convey a point.

Plus… I don’t write reviews, that’s how highly recommended Eric is in my book.

I am +40y and never had a therapy experience before. To be honest, I was quite skeptical when I started. However after just few sessions with Eric, the only question I had was: why it took me so long!?
Thank you for all the wisdom and the support!

My first experience with therapy was with Eric and I could not have found a more impactful individual. Eric listens but is also curious to help, we worked through addiction and confidence setbacks. I would recommend Eric to anyone as his treatment greatly helped me to improve my well being!

Eric, is amazing. It's obvious to me he's an expert at his craft. He has given me new perspectives on many of the issues I personally face. He really makes me think about how I feel about certain issues, and why I feel that way. He makes me look at the things that bother me, and helps me understand why they bother me. It's astounding to me how quickly I've seen progress in my mental state, just by willing to try and follow his suggestions. I'm really glad I decided to reach out to him.

Written on Dec 20, 2021 after therapy with Eric for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and anger management

Eric is very sharp. After a single session, we are already working through reframing my thoughts. Seeking help with trauma, but also receiving help about work. I will say other counselors have been more flexible with schedule.
