Theldon is a great therapist! He was very helpful and a fantastic listener. After every session he summarized what I should work on next, and provided me with several resources that could be helpful to me including audiobooks, articles and novels.

I've found my sessions with Theldon to be very useful. I didn't know what to expect from therapy in general and have a lot to learn about differences in techniques between psychiatrists, psychologists, LCSWs, etc, but so far I think the sessions have helped direct me toward a way of thinking about issues that are positive and productive. I also feel like he is open and flexible about an individual's situation and has a combination of adapting to that as well as incorporating his own way of communicating.
