Luis has been extremely helpful in my better understanding of myself. Luis has helped guide me out of something that seemed unsurmountable at the time. I made progress thanks to him.

Luis and I had a good rapport from the start. We have only had a few sessions but have made great discoveries! He is real! I like his style and approach to our emotions and possible why’s that he lets you figure out. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a realistic approach to understanding themselves.

Luis is always there. He is not afraid to help you out of your comfort zone. He knows how to help without pushing you so much you quit. He responds within the same day to emails (sometimes within the same hour). He knows resources for you and there is honestly zero judgement.
