Thank you for your listening to me Gary. I know we can get through this together. I’m so thankful for your help. Talk to you again soon.
I've hear that finding the right therapist is always a challenge. Especially, when you are new to the whole world of therapy. I consider myself fortunate to have crossed paths with Gary. He truly understands and lends open ear and mind to my needs. When I'm in a rut, he is quick to remind me of the many paths to healthy living, thinking, and a well rounded perspective. I greatly appreciate his wealth of insight that continues to empower me.
I genuinely enjoy talking to Gary and I respect and appreciate his directness and insight.
I've tried multiple therapists and have not had near the amount of success I've had with Gary H. I feel hopeful, I have learned how to gain control of my life and Gary helped equip me with the tools. I cannot express how grateful I am to still be able to work with Gary. I'm finally starting to function again. Very knowledgeable.
Gary listens well and provides needed guidance,, even though it may be personally difficult to hear. All for the best!
Appreciate Gary big time :-)
Gary has made me look forward to therapy. I feel comfortable sharing my life without the fear of consequences or judgement. He listens and responds to me without actually making it feel like I’m talking to a therapist.
So far so good. Thanks.
