What People Say About Dr. Lawrence Ross, PHD

Dr. Ross has been instrumental in helping me to figure out who I am, and sort through the problems of my past. He is kind and patient, and has a level of expertise to which I could find no parallel in my search for a counselor in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area. He was exactly what I was looking for in a counselor, and is able to diagnose and articulate with exceptional clarity. I would highly recommend him to a friend.

Dr. Ross has been incredibly helpful in my understanding of why for the first time in my life I was dealing with depression. In our conversations he was able to expose root causes, give advice on what was going on and give me tools to deal with my issues. Certainly I still have work to do but my sessions with Dr. Ross showed me the way. The path forward is very good. I wouldn’t be in my upbeat state of mind if it weren’t for him. Go see him!

Dr. Ross has been a “God Send” I appreciate the fact that I don’t feel like I am alone in this process. We have great conversations with good feedback. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Ross is truly a specialist in his field of marriage counseling. My husband and I have benefited tremendously from our recurring sessions. Upon seeing two previous counselors (before Dr. Ross), we were doubtful that counseling would make an impact on our marriage, communication, and ability to work as a team. Dr. Ross is flexible in adjustments for work/life balance and we will continue to implement his expertise.

Dr. Ross has been extremely helpful with both my personal and professional life transitions. Although kind, he is authentic and realistic. I believe he encourages a beneficial "give and take" relationship. Our conversations are never one-sided. Not only would I recommend him to a friend, but I encourage friends to pursue therapy, based on my experiences with Dr. Ross.

Dr. Ross is a very talented therapist who is able to provide long lasting and deep therapy to those who are willing to put in the work. My time with Dr. Ross has been extremely helpful both in my personal and professional life. I would recommend him to anyone who is serious about uncovering the truths and underlying causes of negative feelings and are serious about wanting to resolve behaviors that are negatively impacting their life. THANK YOU Dr. Ross.

Dr. Ross has guided me through an extremely traumatic experience in my life and I cringe to think of where I would be without his help. His wealth of experience sets him apart from his peers and I’m blown away by his capability to identify root causes of issues. Most important of all, I believe that he truly cares and seeks to help all of his patients. He’s a fine man.

Over the years I have been to a variety of therapists. Dr. Ross was the first to offer me a diagnosis that enabled me to put together the pieces of my past AND present behaviors rather than offering me a "band aid" or a way to "move forward" without dealing with root causes. He is friendly, insightful, and respectful.

He's a professional, not a quack, which is great. Sometimes quite frustrating because of the challenging approach he takes but I get it that's part of the approach.

Dr. Ross and his staff are wonderful, caring people. Dr. Ross is smart, easy going, and a great listener but will be stern if the situation calls for it. He genuinely cares about his patients and truly wants them to succeed. If you need a medical professional with this type of specialty, then you truly need to consider Dr. Ross to help you.

Dr. Ross is great. He has really helped me through a lot of problems I have had and is a joy to talk to. He is Stern but easy going at the same time. And huge positive is he is always on time. I have been seeing him for a little over a year and he has been late maybe once or twice
