Only saw her a couple of times, but I found it to be immensely helpful. I don't often go in for therapy, but things were very rough in my life. She gave me a fresh perspective, and without her help I doubt I could have made it through. She also took the time to go over some of the issues I was having after hours. All in all she helped me more than I expected.

During my visit with Dr. Unger I left feeling worse mentally. Her tone of voice was rude the whole time and made me feel very judged. The whole visit was unprofessional, she talked over me a lot and did not really listen to me. She gave me advice based off judgements she made about me and did not give me a chance to correct her. She just kept rushing me. I would not recommend her.

Dr Unger has helped me tremendously in only a few visits. She listens without judgement and provides a safe, comfortable space to be honest and a little vulnerable when opening up.

Dr. Unger has been an extremely valuable asset to myself and my family! She listens without any judgement and together she helps guide me through rough situations in order to find a healthy solution! Dr. Unger has opened her office for me on holidays, she takes her personal time for me when I need a quick phone call. I've been with her for years. My life is undoubtedly better because of her care and support. One of the best things she reminds me of is that she is here for me! Yes she is!
