My husband has suffered with anxiety for the past 4 years and thanks to Dr. Washam, my husband has learned how to manage and understand his anxiety. We continue to see Dr. Washam on a bi-weekly basis because we truly enjoy talking with him, gaining valuable life knowledge and to continue to work on ourselves. I highly recommend Dr. Washam and refer him to all my friends and family.

Dr Washam was referred to us by our family physician so we were already confident of him. We found him to be extremely knowledgeable about our problems with a blended family and infidelity. We are very pleased with our sessions and expect that our relationship will continue with Dr Washam.

When my husband wanted to give Dr. Washam more money for spending 40 more mins over our hour to help us, he refused the money, hugged us, and said we could write a review for him if we wanted. Dr. Washam deserves more than just a good review. Dr. Washam has counseled my husband and I for approximately a month. I consider our case a very challenging one and Dr. Washam has managed to take our baggage and lay it out on the table for us to plainly see (per say). He is very good at metaphorically painting a picture for us to better understand what he sees in us. He has shared personal experiences, insight, and education with us, which certainly backs up his knowledge and credibility. Dr. Washam is someone who we both love like family and whom we both highly respect. Words simply cannot describe the godly wisdom we have been so fortunate to soak in. Only 2 visits and we're convinced there is no one better (for us.) He's an animal lover too! Not to mention, his office is SO neat, very clean and comfortable.

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.
