Jovens asks really great questions and guides our sessions and discussions with curiosity and care. He also takes time to provide insights where appropriate, and I've found the time with him very helpful.

Jovens is a very personable and intelligent therapist. He's great at listening to you and giving feedback quickly and trying to help you get to the point. I enjoy working with him and felt very comfortable trusting him right off the bat.

Jovens is a great therapist he is very attentive and understanding of my particular situation. He is a good listener very friendly I feel so comfortable talking too him especially being he was a complete stranger, Jovens always try's to make sure he's understanding things about me even if its unclear at first but takes the time and I think that is very important I would recommend him 100%
