Patient Comments (1)
San Mateo, CA |
She's very responsive and an active listener, but I find her to not be very proactive with your goals. There are often points in our sessions where there are long pauses of silence. I would also encourage her to be more time-sensitive as several of our appointments started late (10min). I'd consider her to be more of a clinician than a social worker. I'd see her for my meds but not general counseling.
