Ivan is not only an excellent psychotherapist, he's an excellent person as well. In the two years I've seen Ivan, I have grown considerably and gained a new perspective on life. Knowledgeable, professional, kind, honest and trustworthy are only a few attributes to describe Ivan. I would recommend him to anyone.

Very nice person BUT unfortunately there's Non-existent treatment and/or solutions for the issues you bring to him. To spend a 1-hour session asking about my weekend, my taste in movies, or telling me about his family history is a waste of time. Then ten minutes before the 1-hour session is over it's time to wrap up? So it's a 45-minute session for the price of a 2-hour session. The only advice given was something to ask my Doctor. For 5-expensive sessions, that's ridiculous.

How was your experience with Ivan Velasco?

About Me

The main characteristic of my practice is the relationship aspect between the therapist and the client. I usually follow up with clients even when they have ended therapy. Some people need this, some others do not. I tried to adjust to each client's needs.
