Great therapist! Always remembers what you've talked about in the past and always follows up to see how things are going. Asks great questions to help get to the root of things.

Dr. Lone has been the most wonderful person to work with. He's an extremely good listener, and has very insightful perspective. It was very easy to have open, candid conversations and get at what I wanted to work on. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a therapist with a positive and relaxed nature.

Our marriage was hanging by thread before we started therapy with Dr. Lone. He was so easy to talk to and we were comfortable talking through our personal issues knowing there was no judgement. Dr. Lone taught us to communicate in a healthy manner about serious topics. Our marriage has never been stronger and I don’t think we would have done it on our own. Thank you, Dr. Lone for saving our marriage.
