These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for David Spellman. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.
David Spellman is soooo awesome love this guy true Top G for real Alpha male
I was always skeptical about if there is truly listened, but with David spellman I feel like he goes a little above and beyond. He does more than just listen, he makes sure that he understands you and what you are feeling. The site does send suggested journal ideas to me but David finds more personal and challenging homework for my husband and I than just a journal entry. Thanks David, for making us feel like we are being heard and helped.
I find David to be personable, friendly, down-to-earth, supportive, and highly skilled. Even if he is not the most punctual for our meetings, he has often gone well beyond the allotted time, which more than makes up for not always being on time. He remembers details about our past transactions which is helpful (partly due to taking good notes, but also likely because he truly cares about improving the lives of his clients. He is not the most formal counselor, which I find to be refreshing. I would recommend him with no hesitation to friends that are in the need of counseling.
We really really liked David. I marked the first question on the thing wrong. And it wouldn’t let me go back. He was personable and not creepy. He made sure to check all the safety and health information out and seemed very very easy to communicate with!
I wasn’t really sure what I needed, but I knew I needed something. David has helped me make huge improvements to my mental health. He provides the most relaxed environment with his personable attitude. David constantly offers insight and new research for the topics we are discussing and always makes me feel safe saying whatever I want. No matter how silly I feel, he always has a great reaction, making it easier and easier to discuss even the hardest of topics.
After only 2 visits with David Spellman, I am already impressed. He asks such thought provoking questions. He is helping me look at situations differently.
I'm not sure how long I'll be able to afford this service, but I think it is helping!
