I only have had 2 sessions with Dr. Riley and I am blown away by the value that I have received from these sessions. I wish I have found Dr. Riley earlier. She is patient, compassionate and gives great insights to my issues and challenges. I always walk out of the session feeling refreshed and empowered.

Dr. Riley really listened to me and offered helpful and practical advice. She provided tools and homework that helped me to structure my thinking and clarify my problem and objectives. I was very impressed.

I've had two sessions with Dr Riley so far and both have been incredibly valuable to me. She listens and understands what I'm going through. Her advice has been spot on. I've gotten so much out of the first 2 sessions, I really look forward to my talks with her.

Dr. Riley is both very capable and very compassionate. She strikes the right cord between being a good listener and a wise sage with advice at the ready. She is extremely knowledgeable and I highly recommend her to anyone going through the difficulties of life.

This is good but be prepared to run through a few before finding the right one. This is NOT a replacement for face to face therapy in my opinion, but useful to resolve maybe smaller matters
