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.

Dr. Lara is more than a therapist - she is a guide, ensuring that you feel comforted, heard, and safe. I've worked with a number of therapists; so, I know it can be difficult to find one that resonates with you. Immediately, I felt a connection with Dr. Lara. She is warm and held space for me, through my tears, jumbled thoughts, and sometimes unsubstantiated fears. She is patient, kind, understanding, and well equipped to help anyone reclaim their power and internal strength. If you find yourself feeling lost or stuck, please do not hesitate to schedule your first appointment with Dr. Lara. I can promise you that just within the first session, you start to feel that proverbial weight lift and the fog clear. Thank you, Dr. Lara for your heart, expertise, and support.
