I have worked with Carlos for 3 years since 2017. He is the first therapist I’ve had that I really click with. He understands where I am at in my life, and is able to help me see parts of my difficult situations that allow me to move past them. I have really been able to grow into myself, become more comfortable and confident with myself, and express myself more openly since working with Carlos.

He’s the best therapist I’ve had in my life. I feel like I’ve made major progress with him.

Carlos is a kind, compassionate, friendly person who has made me feel comfortable from the start. He’s a great listener and offers thoughtful, sound advice. He challenges me to grow and question my thoughts and habits. He has been my therapist for almost 2 years and I have grown so much as a result!

I absolutely love working with Carlos. He is just amazing at what he does. He knows just what to say to help you through any situation. He is a caring and compassionate person with some many great words of advice and just enough fun to keep you interested in coming to participate in counseling.

I came to Pride Counselling and to Carlos six months with issues on understanding myself as a gay man, my masculinity, and anger management.

Over the six months, Carlos has helped me work through each session one by one in a methodic and supportive manner.

Carlos speaks to me as a person, a gay man and as an athlete. He understands me and has helped me to understand that so much in our lives is intertwined: as we work one issue, we subsequently work on many at the same time.

I've been impressed with how Carlos has been very responsive to my needs and offered me various ways to participate in therapy. This has ranged from long and intense messaging through short-notice phone calls to video sessions.

If you are after a counsellor who can support you with any of the following, then from my own personal experience I cannot recommend Carlos enough:

- Relationship issues
- Anger management and stres
- Sports psychology

Above all, what I appreciate about Carlos is that I feel like I can tell him anything and he never ever judges me. This has meant that I've been able to open to Carlos and really work through my inner most concerns, safely and securely. This perhaps the key reason why I've made so much progress in such a short period of time.

Carlos is a good listener. I feel totally comfortable with him. He helps me work through my issues in the best way to see results. Love him.

I have only had two sessions with Carlos but I have gotten so much just out of two sessions than I ever imagined. He is not only very knowledgeable and has really great ideas for ways to accomplish a healthier relationship, but also doesn’t allow me to get in my own way. He’s sharp, funny, and I feel I can tell him anything and there’s zero judgment. He makes you feel so comfortable and I look forward to each session with him. I’m very confident that I have found the right counselor for what I need. He’s multi-faceted in his experience and that shows with the suggestions and concepts he asks me to try with my partner. Can’t wait till our next session.

I really don't have words to describe Carlos as enough as he doing with me, he's really a Good human I have ever met till now.

Very nice person. Seems to know what he’s talking about.
