When I first saw Tony, I was convinced he could fix me right up and I would be on my way. In reality, I had been living in a kind of detached survival mode for most of my life. My family structure was in the process of falling apart and I needed help to provide a good example for my children. Tony is such a patient, knowledgeable and skilled therapist that talking to him even about difficult things was easy. He has guided me to embracing a life I want to live; through therapy I have learned how to identify values, learned DBT and ACT skills and most important how to communicate better and recognize my emotions. My family is growing strong and I can envision a wonderful future.
