Dr. Atkins has become my strongest ally. She listens to me and helps me determine my true concerns and issues and then offers me realistic methods of resolving them. I often have doubts about making important decisions and she helps me to think my options through clearly and from all perspectives until i am confident in my decisions and then we make a plan of action to follow through with them. She is very result driven in her method of therapy and that is what i find most helpful for me. I highly reccomend her as a therapist.
