I love Dr. Kirk! He had a huge impact on me growing up. I am beyond sad with my phone call I just made. I wanted to make my husband an appt. and I asked the receptionist about my insurance. She rudely said "it doesn't matter because they are closed tomorrow and that they weren't excepting new clients." I hope she was just tired.

I have recommended many people to Dr. Kirk, because he is a great therapist. He is kind and compassionate, but is firm when he recognizes that a patient is sabotaging their own therapy. Dr. Kirk is an intelligent man who genuinely cares about his patients.

I would not be where I am today, without the help and expertise of Dr. Kirk. He helped me through some pretty traumatic events. I had been to several counselors/therapists before him. From my first visit with D. Kirk, I knew I was in the right place, and he was the person who could help me, and that everything was going to be ok. He is so professional, knowledgeable on many levels, and has a great sense of humor...when appropriate, of course! Just an overall positive experience!
