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.

I went to see Dr Palmer for the specific approach he was trained in, yet I was significantly re-traumatized by working with him for early life trauma. After speaking with Senior faculty of this approach, I realized Dr Palmer bypassed the basic protocols for early life trauma, even tho he knew my core traumas were preverbal. When I initially expressed concern about working with him, Dr Palmer reassured me saying i could help him grow as a therapist and that he'd get plenty of consultation prior to termination. However, after saying he only got one consultation, he terminated me when my system split and fragmented as a result of his lack of skill working with early life trauma. He offered little support to help me integrate the fragmentation of my nervous system resulting from his having bypassed protocols, and took little responsibility for the harm he participated in causing. I was left feeling dehumanized and significantly re-traumatized, with all my unresolved traumas on the surface.
