Percy is an excellent therapist. It’s so nice to have someone to talk with with a background in counseling, to whom I can present my inner self. I trust Percy as a counselor and also enjoy seeing him like a friend. I would say he offers 9 parts listening to 1 part advice, but I would also consider the advice to be more of a redirection/encouragement of goals that you present. I strong recommend him to anyone lucky enough to get him as a therapist.
