Getting help changed my life. I don’t why I took so long to get help. It took over 3 years saying I would talk to therapist and never did it, but I did it and I’m very grateful. Thank you DR. Joe Proctor

Dr. Proctor is an excellent therapist. He was quick to get to the root of my issue and was able to provide insightful support. He was empathic in his approach, and he was a great listener. I would recommend him highly.
