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.

Paula was OK, but she's certainly not the best therapist around. Her sessions are unproductive. She really likes to ask "why" for everything instead of focusing on helpful advice. She also believes dreams have some sort of esoteric meaning, which is so ridiculous it's laughable.
