Dr. Walters was super supportive and responsive. Her guidance allowed me to gain a perspective that I was lacking, which in turn brought me to the beginnings of learning how to love myself.

Dr. Walters has change my life in such a short time and I am forever grateful. She was very attentive and engaging with me throughout our sessions and always provided me with a sense of comfort and freedom to speak honestly without fear. I can tell that she is passionate about her work and only wants to see others succeed and heal. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a laid back, down to earth, great listener on their side!

She is truly a kind, genuine person who takes the time to get to know you and finds ways to assist you. I highly recommend her.

Only been with Dr. Walters for a few weeks now, but I'm confident this was a good decision! Dr. Walters is very warm, kind, and relatable. 10/10 would recommend. I'm here for career counseling primarily, but I would be comfortable talking about other things as well.

Dr. Walters has been extremely supportive and responsive. She is able to understand without judgment, while also challenging issues with a more positive perspective. It is a rarity that someone is able to join logic, hope, and understanding in regards to mental health issues. She is not over joyous, to the point of hallmark cards, but leaves a positive impression to carry with you day-to-day. She applies logic to things that seem unreasonable, without making it seem like an excuse. Her ability to understand situations she has not experienced herself, is remarkable. Though she is not hesitant to express things that she herself cannot imagine (i.e. the loss of a child, ect.). I consider myself lucky to have been paired with Dr. Walters.
