While I have only had a couple of sessions with Dr. Palomino, her keep it real approach is what I appreciate the most. Deciding to go to therapy is hard enough; however, I find it very easy to talk to Dr. Palomino. I feel heard and understood. She gives great perspective to allow you to see a different way to view your situation while still being supportive. Basically, it’s like having a conversation with a close friend.

Dr. Palomino is an amazing counselor. I am so lucky to have been matched with her! She takes the time to read my journal entries and gives me great insight on them! I look forward to continue seeing her. She also helps by giving me journal prompts, worksheets, and suggestions to help me get better. Her suggestions are reasonable and I have been able to achieve each one. She does not push too hard , she helps take things slow while still making progress. I love her!
