Octavius came at a time where things were very difficult. I lost someone I loved very much and it made me question many things about myself. Octavius listened and dug deep to understand me and proceeded to guide me. It was not like the therapy I was expecting where someone just listens and then you're left on your own to figure it out - Octavius was insightful and provided examples and scenarios. I feel great now and coming from a guy who never thought therapy was a thing, it certainly is! I highly recommend Octavius, thank you for all you did.

Octavius is attentive and thoughtful. He has guided me through situations of great nuance with lucidity and confidence, and I'm a better, stronger person because of it.
