What People Say About Dr. Alan Downs, PHD
I found Dr Downs to be veritable and aware of pitfalls and common errors of mismanagement by other psychotherapists. Dr. Downs gained my trust by not playing on the power imbalance that is inherent in the therapeutic encounter. He was kind and went above and beyond in his care for me. He treated me as an equal and as a person worthy of respect and dignity (no shaming). Dr. Downs is aware of his own foibles which he shared briefly from his past.

Narcissistic and is not a good listener. Spend half if the next session reiterating what happened last time.
