Blake was my therapist for a couple years before I moved away from Atlanta. Finding a good match is always going to be subjective, but I tell you: Blake was almost eerily good at what he does.

With other therapists, I've felt as if I could observe them making decisions about what they're going to say to elicit a particular response from me, or they're long-winded in their verbal illustrations of personal anecdotes, in order to make some simple point.

With Blake, the nuts and bolts of his aims as a therapist remained amazingly invisible. It just felt like we were having these extremely illuminating conversations. Not always easy, but important and good.

Blake never made me feel lectured or condescended to. He forced me to do the thinking-work of therapy, to draw my own conclusions & reckon with my own unhelpful ways of thinking about some things. A good teacher leads his student to a point rather than just telling the pupil what it is and insisting that he believe it. I know, from teaching, that this is unbelievably difficult to do. Blake did it all the time, with seeming ease.

All this said, he was extremely kind. I know from my search for good therapists before and after my period with Blake, that professionals of this calibre are few and far between. Highly recommended.
