Kiel has been an amazing help to me. I feel that he has a good understanding of my concerns, not just in navigating my life but in improving myself and questioning my responses. I feel validated and challenged by his advice without being pushed. He's helped me to get clarity on some major life challenges and put words to experiences I didn't know how to talk about.

I really love having Kiel as a therapist. He is always there to be non-judgemental, he really cares, and he does his best to help his clients solve their problems in a healthy way. Kiel is really great about replying to messages and goes above and beyond to make sure that his clients are okay. I am so grateful to have him!

I’ve only had a couple of sessions with Kiel so far, but I can already tell he’s better than my previous therapist. He starts the sessions on time, and he asks questions that feel productive.
