The provider is first of all professional. She inspires confidence and caring. She asks questions, doesn't assume, is an exceptional listener & communicator. Having seen another care provider when I lived in CA, I can say unequivocally that my current care provider is head & shoulders above my previous experience.

Always respectful, empathetic with great insight. I have been in therapy before. However, I have made the most progress EVER. I have learned to accept my diagnosis and look forward to our next sessions. We need more professionals like her.
