Dorothy has been a tremendous help to me. She really shows that she listens, understands and finds helpful ways for me to get through my problems. I’m so grateful to that I found her.

Dorothy is easy to talk to. She grasped my issues quickly. She offered guidance immediately. She is authentic and empathetic. I will definitely talk to her again when I need help.

I'm horrible with tracking time, but I think I'm on my second week with Dorothy and she's honestly been the best therapist I have ever worked with (and I've worked with a lot of therapists). I feel like I'm learning, applying and adapting all at once with her guidance and questions. Honestly a really great reflective approach on her part. Look forward to continuing!
