I went to Dr. Forrest when I was struggling with deep depression. I found him to be very compassionate and knowledgeable. I'm not usually comfortable talking about my issues, but I felt quite at ease and not at all anxious as I usually am. After many sessions, he gave me the tools I needed to cope. I'm very grateful I went to this office, it changed my life. Highly recommend.

I went to Dr. Forrest for marriage counseling. I met with him on my own first to explain my issues. After some more individual and joint sessions with my husband, he told me my issue was a non issue and it was "case closed" because my husband already apologized. He should have said he wouldn't help me from the first session before he took a lot of money from us. He knew I was having trouble coping with these past issues, but didn't want to help. He told me I was rude for pushing my issue.
