Dr. Nelson Byrne is an outstanding Psychologist and I'm so grateful to be his patient. He always explains things in a calm and professional manner; I always sense his deep concern and compassion. He puts me at ease and even though he has a very busy schedule, he always makes time to see me. Without doubt I have the highest respect and regard for him as I have benefitted tremendously under his care. Thank you Dr. Byrne; it has been both rewarding and a pleasure learning so many valuable skills that make life so enjoyable. After only 6 visits, you have enhanced my life in so many wonderful ways!

I have been seeing Dr. Byrne to help me with worry and anxiety, as well as trouble sleeping. I was a bit worried at first as I have only ever seen female therapists. However, I felt completely at ease after the first session and Dr. Byrne has been far more helpful than any therapist I have seen before. He really is someone who actually cares about his patients and I trust that he is always trying his best to help me. I am really very grateful to have met him. I can finally see light at the end of the tunnel as my anxiety gradually melts away.
