Christian therapists are few and far between, and it took me a while to connect with one. Rev Sergio and I have been working together for a short time, however both his insight and feedback has already helped me so much. Thankful for him and his work.

He listens to me attentively and offers sound advice for what I'm dealing with on an everyday basis. Yet, he helps me see the brighter side of myself and life in God. Thank you
