"Rev. Held is compassionate and always has new ways of looking at problems to make them more manageable. He is a very good listener and takes in consideration the "whole" picture."

"Rev. Held was always flexible with our schedule and provided excellent guidance, through advice and resources provided, to work through challenges in our relationship. He is a dedicated listener, attempts to relate to the client, and we felt he understood our primary concerns. He realizes when to offer praise and when to offer constructive solutions."

"I've only had a few sessions with Rev. Held but I find him to be very receptive to my needs and he offers a tremendous amount of support."

"I was so unhappy when I saw better help matched me with a reverend... I gave him a chance despite my biases and I am so happy I did! It was the best therapy experience I’ve had yet. He is a kind and compassionate person and nothing like the people I associate with church and religion. I hope you give him a chance too."

"He really cares about my problems and sends helpful worksheets and tips to dealing with my issues."
