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.

Negative reviews are accurate. She is very unprofessional, rude and impolite. She needs to take care of her own issues before trying to help others. After few sessions it seemed like I was the therapist. Horrible Provider.

Simply put: If you value a healthy growing relationship with your children, dont go near this person. Completely unprofessional. Horrible parental advice and only enables bad behaviour from kids. Has no idea how to properly foster healthy children/parental relationships. Shoots from the hip. Makes bad situations worse....and even if you dont believe these reviews...please err on the side of caution for your children's sake. Run from this person. Find someone else for your precious children to talk to.

Was not helpful. Charged an extra $25 on last session and when contacted about it, was completely ignored. Unprofessional and a complete hack and in this professional quite a dangerous combination. Will be filing a formal complaint with the California Board of Psychology.
