Ken has a kind manner. He is a considerate and patient listener who has helped me with his thoughtful insights. He instantly made me feel comfortable. He was open to my thoughts and adapted his approach to suit my individual needs. I am grateful to have him guide me through my journey.

Ken is thoughtful and gives me an opportunity to share my feelings. He understands what I’m going through. I appreciate him very much.

Ken is always caring and listening. He provides me great reassurance and listens to me when it’s well needed. Ken also stays on topic and makes sure to ask if I’m comfortable before talking about something heavy. 10/10 in my book.
