Dr. Geerdes has been amazing to work with. I’m constantly taking notes through our sessions. I’m challenged for the future weeks to think and live more aware. He’s been an asset for my graduate school program, but also my own personal growth. It is not just the clinical piece I appreciate, but also the Christian. He brings both. You don’t find that a lot anymore

Dr Geerdes is doing a great job. I like his approach, and although we have only been thru one session, i enjoyed the conversations and recommendations.
