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.

Claudia is the best therapist I have ever come across. She is professional, warm and incredibly smart. She has gotten me through the most stressful times in my life. Her advice is invaluable. I was hesitant about getting a therapist for myself since I usually feel that I can handle things myself. Finding her was one of the best things I have ever done!
