My style and methods involve being there in the moment in the most sensitive way for a person who is sharing and experiencing their concerns. I am open to what people have tried so far and encourage growth while drawing from their natural resiliency and strengths. Each session is an opportunity to find support, enhance awareness, and explore potential.
From recent patients in his private practice:
"He is very easy to talk to, and a very intelligent person. He naturally shows genuine concern, which I needed, and empathy, and he is just a kind guy...a good-hearted person."
"Thanks Troy! I could not have found my way without your help!"
"I found someone who I could trust and in a way you seemed like a valued friend I could turn to!"
"Intelligent guy. He knows what he is doing. He knows his stuff."
