Dr. Burchard was my third therapist, and quite frankly, my best therapist. He was attentive to my needs, showed genuine concern about helping me, and most importantly - he asked the right questions. Working with him helped me process my issues in a thoughtful and positive way that I never had before, and I am immensely thankful for having met him.

Dr. Burchard has been very timely in his responses and has been very supportive and empathetic during my repeated dwelling on with the same issues. He’s been kind and patient.
