Exactly the individual I needed to talk to.

I appreciate the time Garrett gives and allows me to express how I feel and understand what it is I need help with and reasons and ways on how to approach my issues.

I have been in therapy with Garrett for 3 months so far. This time has been full of major life changes and challenges for me. I believe that his non-judgemental approach and positive regard have played an important role in me getting through those events with a clear mind and little losses. Even though at times I felt that he would not get the full understanding of my circumstances, that was mostly due to me not providing the whole picture. Garrett would catch up on that once I give a full explanation. I would also say he is a very empathetic person. My experience of work with him has definitely changed my opinion about therapy for the better. Garrett would be a great therapist for a person going through the wreckage of the past whether it was left from trauma, addiction or negative experience related to mental health treatment.

Garrett listens to me and helps me connect the dots. It hasn’t been an easy process to learn so much about myself, but I feel lighter inside. He challenges me to think about what I’m thinking, saying, and behaving.
