We attended three sessions with her and they were horrible. She was judgmental. She made sarcastic comments if she did not agree with something we said. So if we told her how we were feeling she would literally ridicule us. It was so unprofessional. Do not waste any money or time on this person, she will not help you in any way. I do not understand how she still has a license to practice. I had to gone to therapy earlier in my life so I knew she was not capable of being a therapist. I worry about someone who goes to their first time with a therapist and think this is how it should be. It is NOT. Trust your gut when she tells you stupid things. And run, run as fast as you can to get away from her.

Wife – Sep 01, 2021
I would not recommend her to anyone. She did not listen to us. She hears a part of what is said & thinks she solved the problem. She doesn't talk about what motivates me and my husband when dealing with each other. She kept interrupting us and didn't listen. I am super excited we found a better counselor who knows how to listen. She always wanted to TELL us why we did something, with no self examination by us. We would leave the session wondering what she was talking about, cuz it wasn't us
