Dr. Lopez extremely helpful and a good listener. She always lets you complete thoughts but will have something to say or insight to reveal during discussions. She helps provide confidence in yourself and better understanding of the reasons that brought you here.

Me gusta el hecho de que busca una solución a como me siento y no exige nada sino me siento cómoda, me escucha y trata de entender lo más que puede.

Dr. Lopez

Is very professional and completely separates personal thoughts from assisting in your recovery, there’s a definitive focus definitely established from the beginning and you’ll be relaxed and feel a sense of relief in Dr. Lopez’s ability to educate you about yourself more than you came to know of yourself in the beginning; through the therapy sessions. Highly recommend the “Dr Lopez experience”, as I like to call it.

Dr. Lopez, gets straight to the core of the problem and also tackles issues in the best way fit, helping to bring personal development to your benefit.

She listens. You don't feel like you're speaking to a void and just dumping everything out onto someone. She acts as a sounding board and makes you feel at ease.
