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

I can not say enough good things about Richard. We have made more progress in our couple sessions with him than anything previously. He brings in personal experiences to validate your feelings and make you feel not alone.
