I was in a really bad marriage and Dr. Boland really helped me cope with the divorce process. He was nonjudgmental and supportive, did not push religion and helped me become emotionally strong!

Dr Borland cuts through out of the psycho-babble that lots of psychologists use. He helps you find the root of the problem and then walks you through the way to get well.
