Amy Gorton has been unbelievably helpful in my journey through burnout and job changes. She listens well and offers thoughtful advice. Her schedule is flexible as well, so despite my hectic and sometimes chaotic work schedule, I can meet once a week and not feel stressed about missing appointments (because they’re at convenient times for me)! I am completely satisfied with the bedside manner and skill set of this practitioner.
