Written by E.L. on Sep 25, 2021 after therapy with Nicholas for 6 months

Dr. Schweizer has been very accommodating and understanding with my son. I feel it is very hard to find a male therapist for teenage boys, and Dr. Schweizer has been able to help my son with coping and acceptance of the events from past and present. I would recommend Dr Schweizer.

Dr.Schweitzer has made me feel so comfortable. Even when I step away for a while he reaches out to make sure I’m okay and reassures me that he’s there for me. I finally feel like it’s working.

I am new to seeking therapy but I have to say that this councillor has been great supporting me and helping me figure out my mind. He takes a lot of time and listens to your concerns and also has great ideas on where is you can feel better or work towards your goals. I would highly recommend him.
