I can’t say enough good things about Gary. Speaking with him has helped me through a dark point in my life. He is very easy to talk to and never once did I feel judged. He offered me great guidance through my journey and motivated me to keep going. He never sugarcoated anything with me which helped me set reasonable attainable goals. When I slipped he helped me to get back on track quickly. I can’t thank him enough.

Written by C.A. on Oct 14, 2021 after therapy with Gary for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and bipolar disorder

After only a few sessions Gary has inspired me to be stronger. He offers me a new perspective on life circumstances. He provides a safe, non-judgemental place for me to share my concerns. After every session I feel more positively attuned and alive; filled with compassion and drive.
Gary has shown me true strength. That no matter what one faces - through inevitable fate, unforeseen circumstances, hardship and struggle - that it is possible to push through; and that we must ​keep on keeping on. While also showing a sense of humour and a smile!
I appreciate you
