Therapy was something I've always had on my mind for the accumulated issues I've collected to life. However, it was a step I had a hard time taking for some reason. But when I finally did, I'm so glad I did.

Shahriar has been an amazing guide through my mental growth over the past few months. He helped me identity feelings and Issues I didn't even know I had. Which in turn, helped me understand myself more. I also felt everything Shahriar suggested for me was very purposeful. I'm really happy with the growth I've gained working with Shahriar. Thank you!

Thank you again shah!

I recently started therapy with Shane and it’s already been so incredibly helpful. He always makes me feel supported and I truly trust him. He is a very engaging and attentive therapist and I can’t recommend him enough. I have tried so many therapists and none have genuinely offered solutions the way that Shane does. He’s great!!

I can’t speak highly enough of my therapist Shahriar aka Shane. He’s warm, attentive, and very experienced working with clients with anxiety and depression. I recommend him to anyone looking for a progressive therapist who can help you work through issues and towards your best self!

I'm getting great value from my time with Shahriar, he is articulate and understanding when it comes to relationships both with ourselves and a partner. I'm very thankful that betterhelp paired me with him and I've found his help to be invaluable and I continue to work on being the best version of myself, that I can be for me and obviously, ultimately for my relationship.
