He’s very to the point which helps me actually try and focus on what I need to talk about or what I need to do. He’s also a very good listener.

Active listener who intelligently responds in a way that challenges and supports the conversation. I like that he will not always agree and give credit where it is due, even when it seems difficult to grasp. There is a calm wisdom in the rapport he builds where there is zero judgment, even when you may feel like you’ve come undone. His decades of experience are clear.
