She is very professional and is easy to talk with. I feel at ease with her. I’m a bit of a mess, but she is great with her input and concern. I look forward to developing a good relationship with her!
My sessions with Dorothy have been great. It is evident she is an experienced and skilled therapist/counselor. So far she has been helping me with my focus issues of anxiety and anger, and helping not only identify how these issues have surfaced but also helped me identify aspects of my personality that I didn't consider before. Our work so far has been very helpful for me.
She listens and gives great advice. Dorothy is very knowledgeable.
So far Dorothy has been extremely helpful and I look forward to working with her. She seems to really understand the issues and provides good resources and ideas to help correct problems.
