He understands my situation very well and he listens to everything that I have to say with very much care. He dives deep into my brain with examples from his experiences and implements it into mine. Very good therapist, if I need therapy again I would definitely recommend him! :)

Marcus is a very thoughtful, supportive, and patient counselor and therapist. He was very responsive to my concerns during our sessions and offered great advice—or, even better, helped me get to the answer I knew was correct just by being a good listener. He’s great!
