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.
