After three sessions with Julian I already feel I'm making significant progress on a long road. Julian is a compassionate listener, is straight talker, and demystifies the process. I'm so glad we were matched. Thank you Julian.

He is an excellent therapist. Very friendly, receptive and helpful

I'm two sessions in but I'm already very grateful for Dr. Cano's insight and assistance. Not only is he an expert in his field, working with people with my background, disposition, and particular problems on a daily basis, but he also uses a science-based approach that is hard to find when treating substance abuse problems. Some of his suggestions I am already familiar with through my own research, but having him affirm my findings is good, and some of his suggestions are ones I have never even thought of or come across. I have begun implementing them to success.

Im very thankful I was matched with Julian, he has brought a difference to my daily life. He has helped me challenge fears I wouldn’t be able to over come. He listens to my concerns, thoughts, and problems and helps me understand what can be done and how to deal with them in a healthier way to avoid negative feelings.
Julian really cares and shows it with his work.

Julian is an excellent therapist! He has given me the tools I need to succeed in my journey.

Written by J.A. on Aug 15, 2020 after counseling with Julian for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Julian’s style of counseling has lead me on a journey to actually figure out who I am and why. It’s been an experience of rebirth to understand and identify the “why’s” in my life and move forward with new perspective. Not only have I faced and addressed passes traumas, I’m learning how to identify & control the way my body physically responds to it. Julian is very solution based which sets a strong tone for the week in between sessions. Receiving validation & closure on things I’d normally overanalyze has lifted so much weight that has always held me down. The biggest lesson I’m learning through our sessions is to trust myself. Learning how to trust myself has been the biggest factor in building self respect & confidence. I highly recommend Julian & am grateful for his guidance.

Julian is a wonderful counselor. Julian has made me feel very comfortable in all areas, including being able to talk to him about the toughest situations for me and feeling no judgment, on top of clear, quick and direct communication aside from our sessions. Based on my counselor alone I would stay with better help a long time.
