Only 2 sessions in but George has helped me really take a step back and look at life from a new perspective. I have look forward to both of our sessions and my light homework has been extremely thought provoking. Looking forward to continuing with him!

George is an understanding man. He greets you with a smile that comforts and softens any sort of apprehension. George is east to talk to, intelligent, and intuitive with his therapeutic practice which allows him to identify and help manage issues you may be dealing with. I highly recommend George to anyone dealing with external stressors.

George has had a lot of personal experiences that lend to his ability to provide helpful insight into my own self. Hes a friendly guy who genuinely cares when he speaks and is open minded.

George takes the time to listen to me and also shares struggles he had as a young man that make our sessions feel like I’m talking to buddy who’s skilled in asking the right questions and offering helpful feedback that makes sense to me. I definitely picked a good one with George!
