If Jeff Hartwig becomes your therapist, you are in for a treat. Jeff is one of the most respectful and kind people I have had the privilege of interacting with. He does not sit on a pedestal ABOVE you. He helps you in the trenches. He is always there. He has even kept our appointment when he was sick with COVID. I know this because I could sense he was stressed one day and I asked if he was alright. He explained that he had COVID. He evidently did not want to let me down by canceling. I would have understood, of course! Things like this let me know that he values me and cares about well-being. Thanks, Jeff! You're the BOMB!
