Toby has been an incredible therapist for me over the past two years. He has helped me navigate through my anxieties, worries, doubts, and fears with his expertise in cognitive retraining and positive affirmations. His overall positive attitude has been contagious, and I always left our sessions feeling uplifted and motivated.
Toby's approach was firm when he needed to be, which challenged me to grow and develop in ways I didn't think were possible. However, he was also compassionate and empathetic, which made it easy to open up and share my feelings.
I am so grateful for Toby's unwavering support and guidance. He has helped me become a stronger, more confident person, and I know that his skills and approach would be helpful to many others as well. If you're looking for a therapist who is both tough and motivating, I highly recommend Toby. Thank you, Toby, for all that you have done for me.
