What People Say About Dr. Kathryn Shafer, PHD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Cold and inauthentic—her therapy was average, but when I reconnected with her to sign and fax a 1 page form so I can return to school, I was met with a plethora of simply unbelievable excuses and extensive out of office time, leading me to believe her entire service was performative with exclusively monetary motives. Her staunch unwillingness to help a recent client readmit into their university to continue their life and reintegrate into normal society demonstrates her ironic lack of empathy

Dr. Shafer is amazing! She is extremely educated. Not only in the academic sense of the word, but also in life experience. Her knowledge, wisdom, quick wit, positive energy and genuine effort of making people feel at ease is so enjoyable. She listens carefully to issues brought to her and even after the first appointment can help turn negatives into positives. I also highly recommend her EMDR expertise. She is truly a healing professional with a beautiful burst of positive energy.
