She is a wealth of knowledge and experience, and able to provide amazing insight on my issues. She listens well and remembers items from previous sessions that she ties in to future insights. Can't say enough how helpful she has been in getting through my problems.

Dr. Horton’s professionalism and approach has made a significant impact in my life. Her expert therapy has been an enormous help as I navigated very difficult and sensitive family issues. I would strongly recommend Dr. Horton to anyone who needs support with coping, major life changes, childhood trauma, and addiction. She’s a careful listener and incredibly compassionate. Following each session she provides thoughtful suggestions to continue our work in my daily living and keeps in touch between meetings. Her effectiveness is transformational. I cannot recommend Dr. Horton enough!

Such an amazing therapist.
It's been a long time since I've done individual therapy and Dr. Horton is amazing. I love how she gives you honest feedback, without being overbearing. And especially as I'm working through a very rough patch in my life, she's been wonderful at providing guidance when needed, but also letting me come to realizations independently. More importantly, she's really responsive. I use the journaling feature often and share my entries with her. She will usually reply within 12 hours or less. And even when I've been abroad, I've been able to message with her when I was having a hard time and she replies in real time, which is so helpful to have someone talk you down out of an emotional state.

Dr. Horton has been my rock. She is so professional but also so friendly. She immediately puts you at ease and makes you feel so comfortable to just speak your truth. She's also amazing at letting you know when you're not being honest with yourself and bringing you back to a healthy mindset. I don't know where I would have been these last few months without her.
