Dr. Esch is hands-down the least effective psychotherapist I've EVER encountered. He has zero people skills. I get the impression his experience before opening shop in South Bend was mostly administrative, not clinical. He comes across as cold, sterile, utterly lacking in empathy, highly academic, as having tunnel vision. I hope he finds a position better suited to his skills. He has no support staff so I can't comment on that.

Definitely. I have been to many therapists in town. Dr. Esch was the only one that got me immediately. He was very kind and supportive to me while I went through several serious health crises. I have resolved most of my emotionally paralyzing issues and see him sporadically for med, checks. I am grateful that I was able to be a part of his practice.
