I have seen four psychologists since I was a teenager. I had really despaired that any had something to offer me. There is no question that I finally found the right person. I feel like past attempts were not helpful and, in some cases, may have been harmful to me emotionally.
Had a strong preference to see a male. Also had a strong preference for someone who felt in control with a broad and deep knowledge base. I have been extremely pleased with my treatment by doctor and staff. Highly recommended.
I went through three other psychologists before I found Dr. Adams. What is so great about him is that he doesn't just tell you what you want to hear. He is always kind, but can be stern when the situation calls for it. He is incredibly intelligent and that comes through in his advice and counsel. He never condescends or seems impatient, nor does he pretend to have first hand understanding of every situation. What has helped me the most is Dr. Adams' ability to help me focus my frustrations so that I can verbalize them to my partner more clearly and concisely. I am so glad to have Dr. Adams in my corner and highly recommend him to anyone.
Simply had spent a life of repeated failures, unable to determine why I repeatedly destroyed my chances and marriages. Wife insisted that I get help or she was gone. I did a lot of research, got well, relocated and have begun a new life...with my wife.
Referred by friend and co-worker, at the insistence of my wife. I have resisted dealing with some very deep issues. He retained all of my data between visits which, in light of the size of his practice, was startling and appreciated.
He is simply the best analyst I have ever met. I have made more progress with Dr. Adams in six months, than in 20 years of psychotherapy designed to make me "feel better" or "love myself". I am now learning about myself, and how to take charge of my life.
I have been a patient of Dr. Adams for almost a year, and I believe full heartedly that he is the best therapist I have ever gone to in all my years of therapy. He is patient, understanding, and a wonderful listener. He knows how to meet you where you are in your journey to healing and help you get to where you want to be. His "bedside manner" is relaxed, and I know I can trust him with anything that has been troubling me. I feel I have made more progress in this year than I have in the past 15 years with 5+ other therapists. I highly recommend him to anyone who's looking for a therapist.
My situation is a bit different. I moved here from the northeast. Mental health care was quite a bit different with a very formal setting with which I was most comfortable. I do not want (can easily read on my own) techniques and pop-psych approaches. I wanted a more analytic approach. Depth. That is his training and treatment approach. I am very happy.
