I have only had a few sessions with Pablo but it has already been very apparent that he is kind and caring. He is an excellent listener and makes an extra effort to tailor therapy to my background and needs.

Pablo is an amazing therapist, individual, and friend. He is a good listener who has taken the time to get to know me and help me understand much of my past, depression, and anxiety. I feel like I have the tools and ability to better grow from things that used to bring me down.
