Excellent counselor

Written by L.I. on Sep 25, 2020 after counseling with Keith for 4 months

Keith has been a wonderful support and sounding board, providing my daughter with tools, thoughts, alternate ways of framing thoughts and honest responses to my daughter’s statements and observations. Thank you, so glad we found Keith during this trying time.

Written by W.A. on Sep 23, 2020 after counseling with Keith for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, grief, and coping with life changes

Keith was able to recognize my needs promptly. I really didn't think a half hour was enough time for a session but I am amazed at what he can accomplish in such a short period of time. He makes concrete suggestions and we are making good progress getting my train wreck back on track.

Keith has been extremely helpful!

Written by S.H. on Sep 10, 2020 after counseling with Keith for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Keith has been an excellent asset in my mental well being since we started, and has made my start to therapy very pleasant thus far

Written by G.A. on Sep 08, 2020 after counseling with Keith for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

He is very nice and understanding. He is also good at listening to both sides.

Written by N.A. on Sep 02, 2020 after counseling with Keith for 5 days on issues concerning relationship issues, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

I started therapy with Keith by stating what brought me here and what I was currently struggling with. 3 days later, he replied with a "Ok thank you for talking about that". I let him know I thought his response wasn't helpful, to which he replied that he was already working 10 hours a day before logging onto teen counseling. That did not really help either.
If his schedule is making it hard for him to stay here, then he shouldn't be here, and I'm not paying to hear him trying to justify his life choices.

We appreciate that Keith listens to us, isn’t judgmental and offers several suggestions to help us learn how to communicate better. We appreciate that he treats us as both a couple and as individuals and we feel very comfortable sharing with him.

Written by M.A. on Jul 29, 2020 after counseling with Keith for 6 days on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and grief

I thought my counselor Keith was great. He really saw what was most important even though I lost touch of what that was. Just one session empowered me to do what I've needed to do. I only had one session because I can't afford this service and realized I need to go thorough my insurance. Thanks for your help Keith.

I was in a state of doubt, but I guess from my point of view he subtly helped me reassess my situation and look at myself in a different perspective.
