Linda Protzman Says:

Mental Health Therapy is not easy.  It is very challenging and sometimes uncomfortable. Helping individuals understand and accept themselves or make the changes they determine are advantageous may lead some to become discouraged and provide less than stellar reviews.  I am always open to suggestions for improvement and value feedback.
