Dr. Thurston listened to me. She was very knowledgeable and kind. Just started with her.

Thank you. You showed our family how to communicate again. We had many issues with being open and Dr. Thurston facilitated communication when things were hard!!!! She is demanding, but fair and non judgmental. We appreciate the time she spent with all of us. It was not easy to admit when we were having issues, but the long rooted problems that undermine a family need to be discussed. She made our transition through tough times better.

Dr. Thurston provided me with the insight I needed to overcome my fears and insecurities as a father and a partner to the ones I loved. Working with her taught me to think about others and show empathy. Thank you Dr. Thurston for giving me my life back!!!

I've never had a doctor try so hard to keep me on one brand of anti-depressants when they clearly aren't working; she suggested that I would only get "worse" if I discontinued those anti-depressants, yet didn't want to prescribe something else. In all the time I've been seeing her, I've never once felt she actually helped me. Over and over she has blamed my "attitude" for my depression with her only advice being to "go for a walk". I'm surprised I haven't been told to "suck it up, buttercup".
