Joe, you are the BEST therapist I've ever had, and I've had a few. You don't just listen, you empathize, challenge, and coach. You give me hope.

Joe is an incredible therapist. I have made so much progress with him and our sessions have truly changed my life. I can't believe how many things he has helped me to either accept, overcome, get over, get comfortable with, build resilience around, etc. He is a great listener, gives excellent and often specific advice, appropriately shares from personal experience, offers a lot of flexibility, and more. I will forever be grateful for my time with Joe and all of the positive change and transformation he has helped me to cultivate in my life.
