Robert is an incredible therapist. If you get paired with him then you are lucky. Robert is an excellent listener and provides excellent insight on problems you may be struggling with when asked, as well as useful tools and homework to allow you to look within and apply the best version of yourself in the real world. As of yesterday, I have achieved all of my therapy goals! If I needed to come back I would make an appointment with him.

I’ve been seeing Robert for well over a year now, when I needed help with my challenges, and problems that I’ve encountered. He’s very understanding, and supportive, and his advice has always helped me worked through the things that have challenged. He always appreciates his clients, and I’ve appreciated his help along the way, I’m not sure who I would be today without his help. When he says “better tomorrows, he truly means it”, so I’d recommend him to anyone that’s looking for a therapist.
