ABLE TO GIVE ME HOPE
The sessions feel safe to be open. Dr. Lake connects on a human to human level with real world views and simplistic perspectives. Moreover, I enjoy the practical 'homework' that works!
Dr. Lake has been a breath of fresh air for our family. I am genuinely grateful to have come across him. He has been a tremendous help with our relationship-getting issues resolved that we didn’t even realize were “issues.” He has educated us on how to communicate effectively. I would highly recommend his services as he is very thorough. Thank you Doc!
