Steven Gares embodies compassion and kindness. In the first 5 minutes of our session he was able to connect with me on a personal level by sharing his own devastating loss. Steven's transparency about overcoming his own struggles, and willingness to ( put himself out there ), allowed me to be more willing to share my life's travails. Steven's empathetic nature made me feel listened to and not just heard. I highly recommend Stephen Gares to anyone in need.
