Dr. Blalock is incredible! He is very welcoming, present and patient. He is highly empathetic while also calmly objective. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Blalock was paired with me when I was at the lowest point in my life. I signed up for therapy because I was struggling to get through things on my own. I can't express enough how encouraging and wonderful he has been. He has helped coach me to value myself and realize that though I went through some traumatic years, they do not define me. He is always kind, thoughtful and checks in regularly. I can't stress enough how grateful I am to be paired with him and how much just a few months of work have done. Excited to keep doing the work and finding myself with his help. 10/10.

I have just started with Dr. Blalock but I can already tell he is caring and compassionate and is a great fit for me. He checks in regularly and has been prompt and responsive when I needed a bit of support. I am already beginning to have a deeper understanding of the sources of my anxiety and I am excited to keep working with Dr. Blalock.
