Written by D.A. on Jun 10, 2021 after counseling with Jason for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, and adhd

Jason was very helpful in providing support for my problems, had a plethora of solutions. By no means am I 'out of the woods', but I am on the right path.

I did find that Jason was hesitant/borderline unwilling to assist in finding the root cause of my problems which was something I was desperately seeking. But other than that he was awesome.

This has been my first experience of therapy, and it has been hugely impactful. Jason listened well, was empathetic and personable, and was able to reflect things back to me in a way that helped me see them from a different perspective. Can't recommend him enough.

He’s easy to talk to and very professional. He does an excellent job of getting to the root of your issues through careful listening, relevant questions, and making sure that you tie it together with a path forward. I think his style would work well with a large cross-section of people.

He's been a great help even with the short amount of time we have had together with counseling.

I love Jason. This is my first time taking therapy and I’ve always told it would be the stereotypical stuff. But he truly listens and helps me challenge my own questions and thoughts. Very honest and supportive.
