Louis is a very wise therapist and has helped me navigate the craziness of college and growing up. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to get to know him and learn from him.

Louis has been a fantastic resource. In the brief time I've been talking to him (4 months), I've climbed most of the way out of depression and rearranged my career and life goals to be more in line with my personality. He listens attentively, validates my perspective, and personalizes his advice. Top notch!
