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.

My family was pleased with the quality of service Dr. Peterson provided. She gave us a thorough assessment and realistic recommendations. I also appreciate the fact that she did not provide advice in areas for which is not an expert, rather made referrals to additional support.

Excellent therapist
I'm years late in leaving this review, but here goes. Dr. Peterson really helped me out of a hole when I moved to SC. It was a miracle that I found her during those 3 years. Dr. Peterson doesn't want to dance around issues or listen quietly as you talk about your week. She stays engaged, involved, inquisitive, empathetic, and relatable. I was suffering from a decade-old trauma without any understanding of what was happening to me or why, and she was able to unravel it by truly helping me dig deep into my psyche. Dr. Peterson helped me with life issues, relationships to my family and culture, depression, anxiety, and PTSD. With the knowledge I gained about myself through her, I was later able to effectively resolve my PTSD that had plagued me for so long. Highly recommended!

Dr. Peterson led me through a year of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to address panic attacks mostly related to social anxiety. While the therapy itself is not easy, Dr. Peterson was kind, compassionate and pushed me in the best way possible. She is excellent at incorporating practical ideas into everyday life. She is relatable, but very professional. I find myself recommending friends to her on a regular basis. I am grateful for her expertise--I wouldn't be nearly who I am today without her!
