So Far Luis has been great at asking the right questions to creat a bit of self awareness in us both, his knowledge of ADHA has been very interesting and useful too.

Luis was the best therapist my partner and I could have hoped for! I was really scared to try couples counseling, but he made every session engaging and even somehow kind of fun while getting at the root of all of my and my partner's issues with the relationship and how we could come together as a unit. Definitely recommend Luis to anyone looking for a therapist!

In a short time, Luis has helped us so much. Almost every time a sessions ends we talk about how good it was and how much we needed it. He gives us small and manageable suggestions every week that are adding up to making a big difference in our marriage. So grateful for all of the process we’ve made to strengthen our marriage and our family.

I really worked, and made some great progress on being better while getting therapy through Luis.

Mr. Puertas listens well and asks poignant questions for couples (in my case) that cause in-depth reflections.

Most, importantly, I trust Luis. Their ability to listen is very nurturing for going into a group therapy scenario.

Luis doesn't beat around the bush and gets right to the root of the matter which is great to cover so much ground in just an hour. He is knowledgeable on many facets and so far has helped us move toward the right path. He pushes our thinking with his intentional questions. Highly recommended.

Luis made me and my husband feel comfortable right away. He listens and genuinely wants to help. I haven't had the best luck with therapy, I'm so glad we found Luis.
