I never had a therapist lined out what going to on before trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy. I made I feel comfortable in the first time meeting him. I m very grateful that will help me find a good therapist to be with. Words can t describe how I feel. Thank you

Dr. Preston made me feel very comfortable about discussing my feelings and insecurities about my family and myself. Dr. Preston makes me and my wife feel as though we can talk about anything. We have many insecurities and often feel threatened to speak about certain subjects with most therapists, bo not with Dr. Preston. Thank you so much.

Preston is very in tuned to what I need help with, he knows how to approach the specific treatment models that will benefit me and he actually listens and shows me that he cares. So far in my treatment with Preston he has presented himself as a kind, caring, judgment free clinician that s genuinely interested in helping me heal from traumas I don t understand and don t know how to get through. And he s rolled up his sleeves and has started navigating me through some troubled waters.

Preston s approach to providing and wanting to provide trauma-focused treatment support comes off as genuine and that he actually cares. After only a couple of sessions, Preston still seems to be the right fit for me, in helping me work through my complex trauma and experiences I need help with.
