"Neal is my "go-to" guy when it comes to troubled teens. I heard Neal's story and knew he would be able to relate to the students I was working with. He has 100% helped everyone I have sent his way, I cannot recommend him enough.
He is non-judgemental and down-to-earth. Kids respond to him in an honest truthful way. He is great at building that relationship that needs to happen before a client will trust him. I cannot say enough about him and his character!"
"If the top rating was 10, I would rate him higher. Neal helped our family in all the stages of recovery for our son, and honestly recovery for me and my wife. From talking to our son in the midst of his issues to helping my wife and I reconcile major differences in our opinions on how to handle this extremely difficult situation. Neal helped us navigate the twists and turns. At times he helped us make extremely difficult decisions. Everything he said helped my wife and I work together to help our son break away from the terrible issues associated with addiction. Our son is in recovery now, and Neal played a huge part in that."
"As our family was struggling and in the midst of an overwhelming situation with our son, we were encouraged to contact Neal. I made the call and Neal never hesitated, he began offering encouragement and support immediately. He was genuinely empathetic to our situation. His approach is positive and empowering. Neal provides insight. Insight promotes action. Action promotes change. Neal has been a tremendous blessing to our family. If you think you might need him, make the call, you won't be disappointed."
"I believe one of the traits I admire most in Neal is his ability to keep his composure in any situation both professionally and personally. It shows a humble confidence and an open mind that are vital to personal growth. Neal’s demeanor and integrity are an important part of our friendship and work relationship.
Neal has a quality that exudes a calmness that every leader needs to aspire to. I have seen his mentorship pay dividends in the lives of those he helps through organization and logically thinking through events. Whether it be attaining his goals in a healthy lifestyle, reaching milestones in his professional life, or becoming the friend anyone would be proud to have, Neal strives for more. It is said those who can’t play, coach, but in Neal’s case, he leads and inspires by example, so integrity and character are at the forefront. I have personally had Neal help me through work and life decisions and can with whole heartedness say I am a better person for it. Thank you, Neal, for being a mentor and a friend."
“Neal's compassion for the struggles of addiction and his deep understanding of the patterns of substance abuse creates something spiritual between him and the people he works with. It's as if, every ounce of kindness that has ever been shown to him is being paid forward. This is not a job for him, it is his life's mission.”
"Neal was my family’s angel during a very difficult time! He was ALWAYS available to answer my calls and texts way after normal hours. He coached my daughter and was always there for her. He never gave up. Neal gave her space to reach out to him on her own and would check in with her letting her know he was there whenever she was ready. When she finally was ready for help, Neal moved mountains in a short amount of time using his abundance of contacts to get her what she needed. If I were to have done it without him paving the way, I would still be on the phone; he is well known and respected. While my daughter was in the recovery program, Neal would still reach out to me checking to see how she was doing and if there was anything else he could do!!
EVERYTHING Neal did was above and beyond!!! Neal wrote letters of recommendation, support, made phone calls or whatever was needed all within a moment’s notice!! There was never “give me a few days and I will get back to you”. Neal was even there for me as a distraught emotional mom! My own elderly mother was going through some serious health issues at the same time and Neal even helped me with some resources for her!! Neal is truly a great human being who genuinely wants to help. He has walked this path so my daughter finally had someone relatable that come out the other side."
