I found Tom to be extremely understanding, caring, nonjudgmental, and a great listener. He gave great feedback on group discussions, wonderful advice and I felt extremely comfortable around him. Great work.!
Testimony for Tom
Testimony for Tom
Tom is a caring, thoughtful person and a great listener. He understood what I wanted to get out of the sessions and asked thoughtful questions at the right time, helping me to gain valuable insights. He wasn't pushy, making appropriate suggestions at times providing me with questions to go away and think about. Tom provided a safe and comfortable environment for the sessions. I would definitely go back to Tom if the need arises in the future and have no hesitation in recommending him as a counselor
