WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Kevin, from D.C.
"I started seeing Dr. Cal the summer of the pandemic. When I came to Dr. Cal I had already experienced a wealth of disappointment. I was severely depressed and had been for a while. Our sessions always started with roses and thorns. I probably had more thorns than roses. Thus, I was always in a dour mood. Nothing seemed to be going right. In fact, during this time I found myself really only anger twice within 6 months of our sessions. When I let it go, it was because of Dr. Cal who had spent a great deal of time coaching and teaching me to deal with and handle my feelings as I had put them away for the sake of others. Fast forward to late winter 2022. As I walk through my home, I realized it was no longer a safe place. It was filled with anxiety and stress. It was then I realized it was really ok to think about me and my needs and what the future looks like. I was finally able to make sound decisions for myself and my life moving forward. Through all of my sessions with Dr. Cal’s help, here I am today happy with life and excited about my future. Through the vision boards I have made during our time. The self-help books I’ve read. The exercises I learned to use with Dr. Cal’s help have helped me become a better person for myself. I now advocate for myself in areas I always found stifling. I will end on the note. I was at a planning dinner with 7 friends. We all laughed throughout the evening. Then one friend says, “I’m not sure who the Kevin was I met two years ago, but I absolutely love this Kevin.” This process has been the most fulfilling and life changing."
Evolving, St. Louis
"Before finding Quantum I didn’t believe in therapy. I had numerous therapists in the past who helped me obtain the resources needed to support my gender transition, but none who truly understood me. Until I met Dr. Cal, not only did he share similar lived experiences but has truly helped me in my healing journey and proud to say that his work saved my life. I am forever grateful to have found a therapist/healer that is honest, supportive, realistic, and keeps me accountable on my healing journey. I always recommend anyone I know that is seeking healing to Quantum because I know the quality of therapy I have received, I don’t know a better place."
Dr. Cal Spinks is an amazing professor and mentor, I have learned so much from him about counseling psychology in practice. Because of his expertise I decided to take four major program courses with him. He includes real life experiences in his teachings to help prepare graduate students for work in the field as opposed to just covering the required texts. He is also a sound supervisor and mentor who is able to listen in a non-judgmental manner and applies the discrimination model to assist his mentees to become strong, ethical clinicians. I couldn't ask for a better experience in graduate courses and supervision than what I have received from Dr. Spinks and would recommend him as a professor, counselor and mentor. Also, Quantum is a very unique behavioral health practice that is exceptional at providing culturally services to underserved and often oppressed communities.
Dr. Spinks is a top tier educator who works tirelessly for us students. He impressed us with his professionalism, compassion, and willingness to teach. Despite suffering a tragic and personal loss, Dr. Spinks used this event as a teachable moment. It was a humbling yet impressive experience. I hold his motivation and dedication to teach in the highest regard.
