‘I like to be warm and welcoming. I have a very open and relaxed manner that I hope will allow you to feel comfortable in describing your situation. Research shows that the therapeutic relationship (e.g., how well you get along with your psychologist) can be just as important as the work we do together. I think therapy should not be rigid and I try to emulate that. I became a fur father last year and ‘Morty’ (a Hungarian Vizsla) will finalize his training as a therapy dog towards the end of 2021. Hopefully, Morty will soon help you feel warm and welcomed!’ – Andrew
