Robert helped me through my situation wonderfully. Helped me realize things about myself after one session. I’m moving on to another therapist but he genuinely helped me with the issue I had at the time.

Working with Ron has been very worthwhile. I came to him with what felt like an overwhelming list of problems and he has helped me systematically work through things. We meet on a weekly basis over video sessions and he is also available on and responsive to the messaging system on BetterHelp. He is very welcoming, which made it easier to be open and honest with him about difficult topics. He does a good job of bringing both his clinical knowledge and his personal experience to our sessions.

Very excellent experience! I was honestly happy with my first session with Ron. He listened to me and was able to give me clear feedback about my difficult time in my current marriage situation. He helped me navigate through my emotions during this tough time.
I highly suggest and recommend anyone to book a one -on -one with Ron if you need a REAL therapy that can help you figure out your emotions and how to deal with them.
