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.

I've had a couple of bad therapists throughout the years but Dr. Bernard is the worst. She's difficult to speak to, she's not very knowledgeable and has very little insight. I would be angry and frustrated during and after our sessions because that's how bad she is. She was late to every single session, never even acknowledged her tardiness, and forget about her apologizing for it. She never said how long the sessions were. I asked her after a couple of sessions and realized she would end early every time. She charges more than most other therapists, which is strange because she's not very good. I tried for two months but finally accepted she's just terrible and I'm better off not going to therapy rather than seeing her. I found another therapist who doesn't suck.

I have been working with Andrea for a few months. I was in pretty bad shape when I started. She is very approachable, personable and open. She worked with me to uncover the root of my lack of self esteem. She showed me different ways to approach my view on life. She has a soft touch but is not a pushover. Exactly what I was looking for in a therapist. I will continue with her for many months/years to come. She works with my insurance as well. Well worth it!

Dr. Bernard took some time to get used to. She was knowledgeable but not approachable. She made suggestions and then I would do them and she would say she never made that suggestion... She also did not help me understand my insurance policy very well and I would end up with a $700 bill that she would expect immediately. When I asked for a sliding scale after, she offered to charge me 100 instead of 120. I felt like therapy was a sale and there was never formal treatment w no formal termination
