Dr. Lugo cuts straight through to the issues of your problems with empathy and remorse. Yet opens your eyes to solutions that you didn't know were right in front of you the entire time. I would recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Lugo is very insightful and professional. She led me to uncover a lot of things I did not know were causing me to act and feel a certain way. I am new to therapy; therefore, a lot of things I am unsure of but Dr. Lugo has been superior in helping me along the way.

As a therapist my self I have to say Dr. Lugo is an exceptional psychotherapist. In my time working with her I have been able to gain considerable insight into my own issues and apply the concepts and skill sets presented in session. I am very appreciative of the work we have been able to accomplish and look forward to continuing. I highly recommend her not only as a patient but as someone in the field.

Sandra Lugo is simply amazing. She points you in the right direction to go .. sometimes by acknowledgement of the things you really don't want to focus on., But always in a way that is genuine.. she has taught me more about myself than I ever knew and enabled me to change my patterns of behavior and begin to leave lasting new ways of treating myself and others. My world has opened up and I have so much peace and happiness thanks to her advice and teaching me about myself...

Dr. Lugo does a great job of listening, and providing honest / insightful feeback to help one get to the bottom of their problems. As a patient, I never feel judged when presenting my issues (which is important when seeking to receive help). She is also open to providing help via skype or phone due to weather, or if either party cannot physically make it to her office.. I will say that sometimes our sessions don't start on time, but overall I would recommend her to a friend or family member.

She responded quickly when I asked about starting a new session, and emailed which made communication/scheduling much easier. She has helped me greatly and is an engaged listener with helpful ideas. Highly recommended.

Dr. Lugo has been very helpful with my anxiety issues, I feel a little better with each session. She is very professional, the office environment is comforting, and she gives me helpful suggestions of things to read on my own. I would recommend her services to a friend in need.

I have sent emails to many doctors who never replied, but Dr. Lugo responds to my emails right away. She's empathic, professional and reliable, and offers a beautiful, warm and peaceful office space. Unlike some doctors, she takes notes, a practice I find encouraging. The first session with Dr. Lugo is generally a thorough client assessment, and in my case, her summarized thoughts were on target. Over time, her counsel has made me more reflective, and improved the quality of my life.

She has a busy schedule, but once you are in her schedule she's committed to meeting regularly. I recommend a steady time slot.

Lack of professionalism. Double booked multiple times, wasted hours. Would expect a bit more sensitivity in scheduling given the nature of her job.

To put it simply, Dr. Lugo is a great doctor. Not only is she extremely patient and a great listener, but she is also very understanding. She listens to your concerns and addresses the situation with multiple solutions and is always encouraging during the process. You'll make a bad decision if you don't book an appointment with her.
