Joe is a very patient and understanding man. He listens well and has great input at appropriate times. I find him to be very compassionate and professional.

This is my first therapist ever so I don't know how he compares to others, but I gotta say he has to be a shining example of what a therapist does and he definitely cares about the people he is working with.
