You're an amazing listener and that alone is an amazing gift. Sometimes the best help is sharing things you can't or aren't comfortable sharing with anyone around you. Thank you!

Written by S.H. on Feb 06, 2021 after counseling with Thomas for 2 weeks on issues concerning anger management, and coaching

Tim was essential for me to understand what was going on and to give me the tools to get better and improve.
He was so quick in assessing and understanding, defining the causes of my troubles and immediately counseling on how to try to solve them.
All of this basically at the first meeting.
He is also someone that is able to listen and let you elaborate.
A blessing that I had crossed him on my journey.

Tom is a great counselor, very happy I was matched up with him first signing up for teen counseling. It's been a great experience thus far, I'm glad I started counseling here.
