Pedro has been a fantastic counsellor - he's attentive and responsive, and extremely professional. He's helped me think through issues without me feeling overwhelmed or defeated. It's a gradual process but I feel really happy with how I can genuinely see things have been improving steadily over time. :)

Very personable, prepared, educated, and articulate. Also, Pedro is empathic, yet a realist. I sought out Pedro for his past experience as a probation/parole officer— and his Life-coaching skills. I heartily recommend Pedro!

Pedro is so great at listening and providing relevant and helpful feedback that is constructive and thought provoking. I have had many therapists before, and never have I felt so comfortable discussing any and all issues, even very personal issues. I would highly recommend Pedro to anyone looking for a caring, safe and knowledgeable therapist.
