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 worked with Dr. Shaw for years. I like to joke that I’ve known her longer than I’ve known my husband. She has helped me navigate so many life changes, and gave me the tools to move on independently. I don’t see her regularly anymore, but I think that is more a testament to her care! She was supportive and caring, but also challenged me when needed. I miss petting her sweet dogs during our sessions. I cannot recommend Dr. Shaw highly enough!

I met Dr. Shaw at a very difficult point in my life. I was desperate for help and Dr. Shaw was truly my savior. She scheduled our first session within a day of my inquiry and her investment in my wellbeing has been evident ever since. Dr. Shaw identified the issues I have been struggling with all my life and patiently but firmly guided me to find solutions. The areas I worked on with Dr. Shaw were self-compassion, interpersonal and romantic relationships. Dr. Shaw is an experienced and compassionate clinician, and I highly recommend her services.

Overall, Dr. Shaw helped me in areas like work. When it came to dating/relationships, she was very judgemental and shaming. After discussing this topic, I left feeling worse. I felt criticised and blamed for very serious issues. I did not feel emotionally safe with her. Very upsetting and would never recommend her to anyone

I started seeing Dr. Shaw almost 7 years ago. Looking back over these years, some of the biggest decisions and challenges I have successfully managed have been with her guidance and support. Her flexible schedule (evenings and weekends!) and calm empathetic style make her a perfect fit for doctors or other professionals. I would highly recommend her!

Dr Shaw is a wonderfully kind, compassionate, smart therapist who has a knack at both supporting the patient and challenging them to analyze their thoughts and the validity of some assumptions that may be contributing to suffering. She has helped me immensely and I am so grateful for the work we have done together. I can honestly say my life has been changed by doing therapy with her.

I've been seeing Dr. Shaw on and off for 5 years for ongoing help with PTSD, depression, anxiety and addiction issues. She never ceases to surprise me with perspective insights and little tidbits of advice that stick with me long-term. I've been in therapy for almost 30 years now, and she is by far my most trusted confidante and effective therapist I've ever had.
