Robert has gone out of his way to provide care that evokes one to develop their own lens to very view difficult interpersonal quams. I have great thanks for him.

Robert has been a very good counselor to date. He is the third counselor I tried and I like the way he critically listens to what I have to say and then provides thoughtful insights.
