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 just had my first session, and gained so much insight! I am annoyed that I didn’t go to therapy sooner!

Rachel was always so kind and accommodating. She does EMDR as well. I feel overwhelmingly comfortable talking with her. It is like talking to your best friend who is very knowledgeable and compassionate and professional. I would recommend anyone to her. My children see another therapist in her office and I was surprised how much she has helped. Christina has made a behavior support plan for my 6 year old and has been increasingly helpful the more I adhere to it. —— 10/29/2020

Rachel was very rude and judgmental when I attempted to arrange sessions for my ex and I to help us learn how to work through coparenting issues. Asked for reasonable accommodations considering our circumstances just to met with attitude and snide comments about our situation. She even went as far to say that they couldn’t help bc they only help parents who want to work together for the best interests of their children. Very unprofessional and demeaning considering the whole reason I was attempting to do therapy was so we could work together for our child.

Everyone is so nice and warm. The office is really warm and cozy, and the therapist we saw helped us so much in the first session alone! I feel so hopeful now!

Rachel is so warm and comforting, as is her office enviroment. Right from the first meeting, I felt like I could tell her everything, and she never judged me, I had been to counseling before, but never felt comfortable enough to let it all out. I honestly felt so much better after the very first meeting I almost cancelled the follow up appointment. I am so glad I continued because she helped me to stand up for myself, and not feel guilty.

Rachel was probably the worst family therapist I have ever met. She was insensitive, rude, and condescending. She was also extremely bias. She encouraged my significant and I to separate while I was 7 months pregnant and stated hormones were not a real thing. She was uneducated in her responses and used preschool descriptions of how to communicate. I felt worse every time my partner and I left her office.

Thanks to her help, I have resolved many issues I have struggled with for many many years. She is compassionate and empathic and all of the women in the office are so incredibly warm and friendly! I was so nervous the first time walking through the doors, and the entire office environment felt safe, warm, in addition to being a very classy office, it calmed me before even meeting her.

Rachel McDermott lacked compassion and caring. I found her to be extremely blunt and rude and she shamed me. It was not a good experience, in fact I felt worse everytime I left her office so I stopped going. The other therapists I met that are working there are friendly, and seemed very genuine.
