My experience with Nathan has been great. He has been real with me, he has set realistic expectations from the start, he is easy to trust, and he genuinely seems to enjoy what he’s doing. Working with him has helped me create immediate improvements in my life with simple techniques that are easy to sneak into day-to-day life.

I’m beyond happy working with Nathan. I’ve had other therapist (who have been incredible in their own way) and none have been able to put into words the way I’m feeling when I’m trying to explain how I’m feeling or what I’m going through. Nathan seems to get it and it really empowers me knowing I’m not alone and knowing I’m working with someone who understands.

BH is my 1st experience using a therapist ever and Nathan has been wonderful to work with. He is non-judgmental, is empathetic and authentic in his communications. He shares the appropriate tools with grace and compassion. I am very grateful for Nathan and he gives me hope for humanity. I highly recommend Nathan for therapy.

Nathan was very professional when needed and very down to earth when needed as well. I think that's very important in a counselor/therapist. No one wants to talk to a robot or someone that is very unprofessional. Anyway, I would recommend Nathan's services to any of my friends and family.

Nathan is a very down to earth individual who immediately made me feel comfortable and has been a massive help in turning my mental health around. I would confidently recommend him to anyone looking for therapy.

Nathan is great: not only is he an outstanding advocate for polyamory, but he is also extremely insightful about relationships and perceptive!

Written by P.E. on Mar 11, 2022 after therapy with Nathan for 6 months on issues concerning depression, addictions, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Nathan is the most responsive and action oriented therapist I have ever worked with. There is no other therapist I trust more.

Going in to therapy and joining better help I never anticipated finding someone like Nathan. I have tried therapy before and never felt like it fit me. Nathan has been one of the best things to ever happen to me. I was in one of the lowest spots in my life when I started with him and he has helped me every step of the way and celebrated all my wins. His flexibility and positive energy have made this over all experience amazing. I could not imagine a better therapist.

Written by P.I. on Feb 10, 2022 after therapy with Nathan for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship issues, grief, and coping with life changes

Nathan is an incredibly experienced, skillful, and compassionate and s therapist. He has helped me navigate through breakups, explore polyamory and my sexuality, come into my own as a creative and as an individual, and inspired me to develop my own roots. I genuinely look forward to our sessions doing work together. He makes me feel seen, held, validated, and encouraged to be better. He consistently reaches out outside of sessions and has taken time to schedule extra sessions with me in an emergency.

Nathan is the most selfless person I have ever met. He is a gift and I am truly so grateful to know him. I love who I am becoming with his guidance.

Working with Nathan has been an incredible experience. I believe he has changed my life for the better in a short space of time. His experience and knowledge is phenomenal, our sessions are always fascinating discussions and I take away so much from them. His support over the last few months have been amazing and I feel better prepared to take on new challenges in life due to his excellent coaching. I would 100% recommend Nathan to anyone interested in working with a therapist.

Nathan has been a great help to me in so many ways. He helped me navigate self esteem issues, anxiety, depression, work trauma, and starting a new relationship. He was willing to divulge some of his shared experiences as well as expertise. I’m very grateful for him and all the work he has put in to make me do better in my day to day life.

Nathan was always very helpful and supportive! The tools he provided me have helped with my anxiety, and he was always there to help when I needed extra support or reminders. I always felt better after speaking with him. Very grateful!

Nathan has been wonderful and so knowledgeable. Overall it has been an excellent experience. Nathan is friendly and creates such a comfortable environment. His way of listening is both kind and caring. The scheduling experience was great, too.

To Nathan: thanks for always going the extra mile. You are professional, helpful and yet careful. You love what you do, and it shows.

To future patients: If you are matched with Nathan, you are in great hands. I highly recommend him. He helped me figure out things that I never knew about myself, that helped me to grow.
