Dr. Bordisso is a kind, gentle soul, and the most enthused listener I have ever encountered! He is patient and consistent, caring and invested in your progress. You'll have a kind voice to guide you along, just as I have. A long journey is a long shorter with a companion and a story.

Dr. Bordisso has been absolutely amazing. I have had short stints with therapist in the past but I have never had such a great connection. He is easy to talk to, respectful and funny. I am so grateful to have such a strong pillar of support in these weird times.

Dr. Lou has been more like a trusted mentor to me than any other therapist I’ve ever had. His compassion for my fragilities is incomparable. I can not thank him enough for the services he provides for me. His wisdom is beyond what I can convey gratitude for!
