Wayne is sharp, insightful, a great listener, and extremely knowledgable. He remembers important details about my life and connects dots between sessions. He develops practical solutions with me to combat some of my patterns of behavior/thinking. I look forward to my weekly sessions with Wayne.

Wayne has a way with his words that make me become more aware of my actions, thus causing me to have epiphanies and realization I would not have otherwise had. Wayne offers PERSPECTIVE, which is key in understanding a situation from an objective point of view. Wayne is teaching me how to value my qualities, know my worth and help me to understand that every action has an equal and/or opposite reaction, taking it one step at a time.

I've been working with Wayne for about a month now and he's been very helpful with whatever I bring to him. He knows the right questions to ask and when to ask them. I have seen positive changes in the way I'm handling my life even in just this short time. You're awesome Wayne. Thank you!

Wayne is a genuine empath and offers me better ways to frame the negative thought patterns I have had for many years. He has helped me regain confidence in myself and my abilities. I did not really see value in pursuing therapy until I invested time into seeing Wayne on a weekly basis. I would recommend him to anyone else trying to regain confidence and perspective in their lives.

Wayne is an excellent therapist. I feel very fortunate to work with him and highly recommend him. He has really helped me navigate through some rough spots but also helped me recognize ways to celebrate my strengths and achievements.
