Written on Sep 13, 2023 after therapy with Robert for 2 years on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and trauma and abuse
Robert does a very good job at analyzing me and finding the best ways to approach me as an individual. He has a very strong gauge on when to push you on a topic without overwhelming you. He is incredibly professional but has a warmth that makes the sessions personable and easy to open up. I strongly recommend him to anyone starting their journey or looking for something new.
