Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Quite pedantic, doesn't have much depth to her therapy practice, and cannot tailor her approach to individual needs. She sounds friendly, interested and optimistic, but really doesn't go beyond theory and mostly sticks to being politically correct and diplomatic during sessions. When therapy doesn't work after a few sessions, for obvious reasons, she's quick to prescribe medication.
