He is rude and condescending. Instead of asking me about my feelings, he told me what I felt. It was crazy. He berated me and pressured me to come twice a week even though I told him I couldn't afford it. Then tried to manipulate me to do so by telling me that I was hiding from my emotions. I tried to give zero stars, but this site forces you to leave at least one. This man is an abusive and demeaning bully. He isn't good at his job. Stay away.
