We love Seth, he is super relatable and offers really helpful perspectives.
Seth really helped us understand eachother at a deeper level. Thank you Seth!
Only two sessions in and Seth has helped my partner and I communicate are issues together in a safe space. I feel as if he genuinely listens to the both of us, without taking sides, guiding us in a way to understanding how the other is feeling. Seth is extremely understanding where both of are emotionally and is a very helpful unbiased opinion.
