I chose to do counseling because of family issues mainly. I was very nervous about my first counseling session. I have never been to therapy before and didn't know what to expect. I am very reluctant to disclose personal information to strangers but on our first session, Dr. Parisi made me feel very comfortable. He provided a listening ear and let me voice my concerns without any judgement.
I am from a different culture and I was pleasantly surprised to find that Dr. Parisi has knowledge about certain aspects of my culture which made our counseling sessions much more productive.
Within only two sessions, I was able to gain a totally different perspective on my situation and a plan to move forward.
Dr. Parisi is very professional, encouraging and also has a good sense of humor so counseling is never boring :)
