Dr. Spelgatti is a straight shooter, no BS kind of guy. I'm busy and appreciate that very much. He's super responsive, and just the right amount of proactive and pushing to keep me moving forward, which I might not do on my own. I couldn't work with someone I didn't respect professionally and he's got credentials for days.

Dr. Spelgatti and I have been working together for a few months now, but we were able to become comfortable and familiar with each other very early on. That has made the experience much more gratifying for me, because I feel encouraged to be the most myself that I can be.

I've never been to a therapist before, but Dr.Spelgatti has been a tremendous help! He doesn't overestimate or underestimate me. I set the bar. It's nice to enter a conversation without having yet another pile of expectations put on me❤ This has helped me to untangle the areas of my life that I can and not be afraid to ask him for help or suggestions when I'm feeling stuck. Dr. Sean is one of the good ones!

I have nothing but good things to say about my time working with Sean. He is a great resource for me; never judgmental and willing to listen objectively. He asks thought provoking questions that helped me to breakdown and understand my thoughts and emotions. Through open and honest dialogue I have been able to better understand myself and he provided me with the tool I need to manage my expectations of myself and those around me. I appreciate the open relationship we've been able to develop. I would highly recommend Sean to others working through the same struggles that I have had.
