What People Say About Dr. Krista Roybal, MD

I've been to many psychiatrists in my life, most spend about 7 minutes with you (after weeks of waiting to get in!) scribble a prescription and send you on your way. Dr. Roybal is without a doubt the most compassionate and compotent dr. i've ever been to. She actually cared about getting to know me as a person. I saw her at True Life Center and it wasn't exactly cheap, but to me it was worth every penny to get a handle on my severe anxiety.

Dr. Roybal was the first doctor to actually give me the proper diagnosis, and take enough time to understand me. When I first started seeing her I was having so much panic and depression, I was in a job I strongly disliked, and I couldn't focus. I'm a completely different person. My mind and body are so much calmer. I left my despised job and started my own business. I'm the best I've ever been in my life and I attribute this to Dr. Roybal and the team at True Life Center.

Dr. Roybal took a fresh look at my condition, helped me re-label the challenges I faced, and started me on the path to self-acceptance. She introduced me to Somatic Experiencing techniques which over time has truly transformed the way I cope with having an over-active sensory system. I would highly recommend her.
