Samuel is an amazing person. Over the last few months that I have had him as my therapist he has help me in many ways. He has help me find ways to look at my issues and face them with courage. As well providing me with tools and little assignments to help grow more comfortable with myself. Personally I never thought about doing therapy in the past but after how easy and how comfortable he has made it for me I definitely recommend him to anyone
