My wife and I both really appreciate Brian's perspective and guidance while navigating through conflict resolution. We have both felt heard by him. Despite only having done two therapy sessions with Brian, we are both very happy with the outcome thus far.
Brian has been understanding and supporative
I enjoy working with Brian. In only two sessions, we were able to make significant progress. Looking forward to more sessions.
