Terry Surinsky, LCSW
"When someone really hears you without passing judgment on you, without trying to take responsibility for you, without trying to mold you, it feels damn good. . . . When I have been listened to, and when I have been heard, I am able to re-perceive my world in a new way and to go on. " Carl Rogers"
