Written by J.E. on Apr 07, 2021 after counseling with Stephen for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Today I had to end my sessions, and it is because Stephen got me to the healthy place I needed to be mentally. He was a great listener. We worked through some of the challenges I faced and the anxiety surrounding them. I can't explain what he did that was so miraculous, but I guess sometimes we just need someone to hear us, help us process things one crisis at a time, come to a reasonable solution to move forward so we can heal and deal. Stephen did that for me.

Stephen has been great he is always available to me by text and is very easy to schedule our phone meetings together. He listens to what I have to say and also sends me tips on how to get better at my opportunities.

Stephen was just great to work with. He created a comfortable and judgment free environment that made it easy to work through difficult issues. Even when I thought we’d talk about one issue, he seemed to gently guide me towards the real underlying issues. Would highly recommend him!

In the brief time I have been working with Stephen he has already been a huge help! He is responsive, approachable, and truly listens to understand what you are going through and how to help you. Working with Stephen has given me confidence that, with work, I can find my way through and that lifts such a weight off my shoulders. I highly recommend him!

Stephen is fantastic, he helped me manage different parts of my emotions and understand that I am allowed to feel what I am feeling. He makes you feel as though what your feeling is valid and cares about your mental well-being.

I have been happy with the progress I have made with Mr. Serrato. I was not sure about talking with a counselor, but after our first session I was glad that I did. He has been attentive to my goals and helping my identify things I need to change. We have focused on positive changes and my future.

I can't say enough good things about my experience. I have recieved great resources and support from this therapist. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with anxiety, depression, addiction, marital issues, etc. He will be there for you whenever you need help.

Stephen is a great therapist! He listens, is extremely knowledgeable, has immediate action plans and doesn’t just give advice right away without really hearing you. The best therapist I have worked with yet. Highly recommend! I am blessed to be working with him.

With just a little bit of help and support I have turned around the way I am working towards things in my life! Having a non-judgmental support is a wonderful thing to have! Focus on being positive, happy and mindful! Having a couselor to reflect back positive energy creates so much momentum!
