Patient Comments (2)
Richmond, CA |
Dr. Gonda is the only therapist I've been able to stick with long-term. He is extremely open-minded, supportive, and really cares about his patients. He asks questions that lead me to greater insights, and provides encouragement and constructive, solution-oriented advice when I'm faced with issues that seem insurmountable. I've already recommended him to several friends.
San Pablo, CA |
Dr. Gonda has been the only therapist I've had who has truly been able to help me. He listens, and is able to help me come to my own conclusions about the troubles I'm going through. I've already recommended him to close friends and family.
