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 have seen a number of therapists in my 56 years, and Dr. Jeff Peterson is the best one yet. What’s different? In our first session I felt comfortable sharing things that I never told previous counselors for fear of feeling judged. It felt safe with Jeff. He is nonjudgmental. He is sensitive and empathic — yet simultaneously challenging to help me view situations in a different way. I’m extremely grateful for his knowledge, insights and most of all, his caring demeanor. It’s my safe respite.
