One reviewer said, “She’s a caring great woman. Helped me with many issues. Addiction, depression, anxiety, and adult ADHD. I’d love to see her again just as my psych dr. She’s the best. My insurance companies changed and I had to find another dr. To this day it’s been unsuccessful. She’s kind compassionate as long as you don’t BS her she tells like it is even it may not be what we want to hear but we need it. Love her and want to see her again!!”.
