These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Ricardo Ortega. 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.

If your relationship is rocky and you're not sure what else to do, see Ricardo! I cannot recommend him enough. He gets straight to the point and is very direct in the way he communicates and maneuvers each situation. My boyfriend and I's relationship has improved tremendously because of him and the homework we get. Very thankful we got paired with him on the first try.
