Dr. Washam has mastered the art of active, compassionate listening. He skillfully employs insightful interpretations with gentle albeit direct confrontations. My wife and I have benefited beyond our expectations, and we are most grateful.

Dr. Washam provided a caring, supportive and safe environment for my husband and me to openly discuss our marital concerns. After just five sessions we have already developed a new appreciation for the importance of sensitive, honest, accepting communication. Dr. Washam is the best.

I have been a patient of Dr. Washam‘s for the past year. He is an excellent diagnostician, and has a keen ability to not judge or blame but rather understand and accept. Dr. Washam has been a tremendous help in my healing.

Nowadays, mental health has become all about medication and treating symptoms. However, Dr. Washam is a wonderful and refreshing alternative. He is caring, direct, insightful, humorous, and challenging, and his commitment to authenticity and transparency has been transformational. Throughout our therapy, I have felt safe and cared for (even during the most difficult sessions), and I encourage anyone who is struggling to contact Dr. Washam.

I knew something was out of control I just didn't know what. So I decided to give myself and my husband a Christmas gift and get some help. I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety when I thought I had depression. I was driving myself and my poor husband crazy after a few visits and finally agreeing to try a very small dose of anxiety medicine I know have control of my life and I so happy. Wow what a difference Dr Washam made in my life. I was terrified but I had to do something. It is ok to admit something is wrong and this man will help you to get better. Don't hesitate for minute on choosing him. He is absolutely awesome.

I began working with Dr. Washam in June 2017. I decided to work with him based on his many incredible reviews. I must say that with his help, guidance, and compassion, he probably saved my life. Dr. Washam is so different from most others because he cares and wants his patients to succeed in life and reach their full potential. After six months of his guidance and help, I am in a fantastic emotional place. I truly have never felt this strong and confident in all my life. Thank you Dr. Washam.

I am a 22 year old and have a child. When I was 19, my child was born and had been suffering from mild anxiety and depression. I have been going to Dr. Washam for about 6 months and its been such an enlightening experience. He is very intellectual and makes you feel like more than just a patient. I have truly found a friend in him and no longer suffer in anxiety or depression. By far one of the best and most informative experiences I have had.
