I've only seen Pedro a couple of times, but he has proven in this time that he is attentive, trustworthy, and experienced. His regular recaps of our meeting by text reassure me that I am being listened to, and his sessions always feel to be at my pace making it easy to open up. I cab already tell Pedro is among the best therapists I've ever had.

My experience with Pedro has been insightful and has allowed me to find balance in my chaos and confusion about the circumstances that I am faced with and feeling in control amongst all of it. He listens and hears me. He responds with experience and compassion. I have come to trust him immensely through our conversations and video chats. I give him an 5 star rating.
