Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

What a joke!
We went for communication, AGAIN, this giy just loves tearing me down. Don’t know why but he is quite arrogant and disparaging women. Don’t dare disagree or he’ll take you apart. Two appointments neith having to do with communication and left feeling horrible about myelf. I mean he just verbally shredded me. Caused huge fight with my spouse. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS …Therapist?

I have been to several counselors over the years, and Mark has been hands down the most helpful. He is a true genuine soul and I can’t thank him enough.

Going to Dr. Liston was one of the best things I did for myself. I had severe anxiety and I am so much better now. I did not realize how sick and angry and bitter I was till I look back now. Mark taught me many skills on dealing with my life that I can use on my own now. He is not judgmental. I highly recommend him.

Mark is refreshingly unconventional. I have been to a few counselors and never found the right fit, until I met Mark. He has a way of making me feel comfortable to speak unfiltered and always helps me get to the nucleus of my concerns. He has taught me some amazing coping techniques and helped me find ways to stay focused. He is not afraid to open up about his life which makes my sessions feel more like I am talking to a mentor or friend rather than a therapist. I highly recommend Mark.
