Wayne has been great in helping me to work through my internal struggles and develop tools to cope. Trying to sort through my problems on my own was going nowhere and just kept me running in circles. I'm starting to see a way out.

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!
