Dr. Wilson has been amazing to me, he lets me know that what I am feeling about certain things is normal and he listens to everything I say. His advice has been amazing and has helped me through a lot. I can not say enough good things about him. He makes it feel like I'm talking to a friend instead of a counselor and its so much easier to open up to him.

As a person with some pretty severe anxiety, Dr. Wilson was able to relate with his own experience and thus was able to effectively offer methods and advice that could help with controlling my anxiety. We've only had a few sessions so far, but his wisdom has definitely impacted me already and I'm grateful for his help.
