While I have just began working with Dr. Garrett, he is a knowledgeable and expert therapist. He is kind, thoughtful, brilliant, hard working, inquisitive and willing to learn about new things.
He helps me to feel seen; better understand my self, thoughts, & emotions; and identifies patterns that I am personally unaware of.
I have been in and out of therapy for a few years with different therapists. I finally feel like I can see the world with a brighter light thanks to Dr Garrett.
He sincerely listens to your concerns and has the best in formation to give. I’ve never felt more understood. He is amazing at his job!!
Dr. Garrett is an excellent therapist, goes above and beyond to make sure I am okay, and provides ways to better me as a person. I hugely appreciate his efforts to help me.
EG3. What can I say? I’m a mental health professional. I’ve benefited from therapy at times of difficulty. I’m so glad I found Ernest Garret III as I’m going through a divorce after almost 30 years of marriage. He’s smart. He pays attention. He’s punctual. Most of all he shows how much he cares. He’s challenged me at times and just supported at others. It seems like each session has a clear message by the time we’re done. I highly recommend EG3. I’m just hoping his schedule doesn’t book completely now!
Ernest and I have only had a few meetings so far, but he's been fantastic to work with. Very thoughtful - takes time to listen without judgment, and also confirms what I'm saying to let me know that he understands and that we're on the same page about how I'm doing. I was looking for a therapist who is steady, reliable, empathetic, and clear in communication, and Ernest has been all of those things. I'm very grateful and highly recommend.
excellent service all around when I really needed some critical support, worth the money.
