Always ready to help!
My son actually was willing to talk to the therapist more than he would to us. It’s a new thing for him to be in therapy and we are hopeful to make some progress
Brian is an amazing counsellor. He listens to me and always knows what to say.
So far working with Brian has been great. We’ve only had one session together so we will see how it goes moving forward as it always takes time getting to know someone.
I feel like Brian is helping me piece together the issues that are really bothering me and not just the surface level feelings I may have day to day. I get a lot out of my sessions with him.
Brian was a great therapist
It’s only been a month, but so far I’m thoroughly enjoying my sessions with Brian. He listens very well, is respectful, conscientious, knowledgeable and provides a very comfortable sharing environment. I plan on continuing to work with him as my counselor.
Brian has already helped me and. after only 2 sessions I feel stronger. He has compassion, reassurance and gives me hope - all the things I need right now.
Brian is very reassuring and an excellent listener. He does radiate a calm energy which is helpful for those of us who suffer from anxiety-related issues. Additionally, he comes up with an individualized action plan for each specific client. I was also overseas, so it was really great that Brian made our time difference work for therapy sessions.
Brian is an extremely calm and peaceful presence who exudes wisdom and expertise. He is extremely warm and I cannot reccomend him highly enough!
