Mr. Crooks is a gem. He is warm, kind, considerate and fully present in our sessions. He provides meaningful and insightful advice. I actually write all of it down in a little journal because it’s so relevant and meaningful to me- never found the need to do that with a counselor before!
I always look forward to my sessions with Mr. Crooks!
