What People Say
"They are goal-oriented. I feel like I have something to check off. "
"We can talk through the issues and work on finding a solution."
" I liked the approach he is planning to use for me."
" I felt that my therapist did a really good job with talking to me about my negative thoughts. He was extremely helpful."
"I felt that my therapist did a really good job with talking to me about my negative thoughts. He was extremely helpful."
" Daren cut through the unimportant stuff and went straight for what was not necessarily apparent at first, but actually very important."
" Daren is always an engaged listener, and I feel like he truly takes time to process what I'm saying and takes time to gather his thoughts before providing insight into the situation. Also, feel like he is quick to ask for clarification if he thinks he might misunderstand."
" I like that Daren provides active guidance and interpretation, rather than passively listens. I liked that he has helped clarify activities for me and has been patient. I feel like I am actually getting something out of these sessions and learning more about myself. Also, even when discussing difficult topics, I feel like I'm leaving in a better state than when I started during a session. This has been a massively improved experience, compared to other therapists I've seen in the past. "
" So far Daren seems really diverse and not thrown off by me being people of color and same-sex-attracted, manic, addicted. He has never judged my lifestyle or shown contempt for it even in the slightest. The best thing I liked about our sessions is when he takes charge and slows me down when I'm off-track. There were a couple of particular sessions we had where my confidence in him built up but I can remember exactly what happened. All I know is that he seemed to be getting down to what behavior and lifestyle changes I need and what small steps to take to get to them. He also discovered that I need emotion regulation which I thought was "kids table" stuff at first. Also when he identifies with my brokenness that seems to help."
