Written by S.H. on May 25, 2021 after counseling with David for 7 months

My counselor, David Growcock, has really helped me process through trauma in my life. I would recommend him to anyone who needs help. After therapy, I felt much stronger emotionally and mentally and feel I now have the resilience I need to face whatever comes my way.

I like David. He's better than the person I had before. More professional and better insights.
