We went to Dr. Handley in a time of crisis with our family. She was very helpful and compassionate with us. She taught us a lot of skills to help our children and us cope with our tragedy. We would highly recommend her for counseling.

Dr. Handley is an exceptional psychologist. She has helped our family deal with difficult situations and given us advice and tools that have changed the dynamic of our family in a very short time. We originally began seeing her when we were 1st married. Fifteen years later, we are now seeing her again. Her genuine love and care mixed with her ability to make each one of our issues feel heard is something special.
