Dr. Amanda is awesome!! She listens to you and helps you in every way possible...... she makes you dig deep for answers, which pushed me to open up more. She is awesome!!
I really appreciated Amanda's insight and her words were very eye-opening and helpful for me. I would absolutely recommend her and this service in the future.
It's been a few months now with Dr.Veldorale-Griffin, and I can't begin to describe the amount of credit I give her for getting me where I am today. She's supportive, progressive, and just over all extremely helpful. I can confidently say that she's helped me finally begin to really put all the pieces back together that I was so sure were broken. Very excited to continue this journey!
Not only is Dr.Veldorale-Griffin extremely sweet, she's very real and knows how to handle the information that is provided to her. I feel very safe, and have developed a trust to where I know I can open up in the most honest way, which I haven't been able to do in a while. She knows what to say, what to suggest, and listens very well. Already seeing results in myself because of her. Glad I was provided with her help!
She was prompt in her responses, respectful and professional
Dr. Amanda is great, sweet, prompt, and comprehensive.
It's been about a month that I write with Dr. Amanda Veldorale-Griffin and she's been fantastic. She's very insightful. So far she been an invaluable resource and outlet.
