Testimonials

Hear directly from our staff and clients:

My style is pretty direct … I work with clients to help them understand their emotional suffering and develop the tools to address their concerns.

Therapist

I am happy with SPOP in every way.  Your help has been invaluable and your guidance has helped me over many rough spots.  I’m glad to know that you are there for me.

Client

I am warm and relational in my approach to therapy.  While I can be solution-focused, I also allow room for creativity for both the client and myself.

Therapist

I was afraid to join a mainstream bereavement group.  But I was in complete despair after the death of my husband, and I had heard that SPOP would be a safe place for a gay man.  I can’t say enough about how this group helped me – the other members were respectful and the group facilitator made certain that everyone’s voice was heard.  I’m in a much better place now.

At my core, I’m a family systems therapist.  In my work I build upon that framework to include insight-oriented therapy and a belief that we are all capable of emotional growth and self-knowledge.

Therapist

Thank you for providing telehealth during the pandemic.  I’m less anxious now and feel less isolated.  I no longer feel that I’m going through this alone.  SPOP cares for their clients!

Client

I’m grateful for the services I have received at a SPOP satellite near my home.  Telehealth has been a godsend but I’m eager to see my therapist in person again.
