Seemed like he was doing psychology by numbers, didn’t really make any attempt to understand my issues.

I do not know who wrote this, so here, I take a flyer. In reviewing my schedule around this posting date, I saw that I had a first meeting with a quite intense person, who given the chance, might have talked the entire meeting. I took charge to ask questions necessary to make diagnostic formulations. Developing a working relationship requires time, effort and patience. After all, Psychotherapy is a process and not an event. It is sad that I could not connect, but I did work to do so. Be well.

DO NOT BRING YOUR CHILD HERE. Talked about himself the entire time and is extremely quick to throw your child on medication without even talking to them. It is heartbreaking to think this man is 'counseling' young people. He will tear down your child's self esteem IN FRONT OF YOU, to make a point...more

I thank you for your review and i am sorry that you feel as you do. I care deeply for the well being of my patients and because meeting time is limited, I must focus on completing first evaluations in 1-hour. Although I understand your complaint, I do not believe that your experience is indicative of my patient care standards. I would have preferred to discuss your displeasure than to respond via this HeathGrades review. I urge you to be in touch to discuss this matter. Dr. Peter Williams
