Dr Garrisoc;arityn has not just basic skills, as listening, and leading me to insights. She is genuinely interested and open to sometimes tangential issues. I was very comfortable sharing.

This is my first time doing therapy and I am nearly 60 years old! So far it is going great. Dr. Garrison is very intuitive and thorough and understanding. I enjoy working with her very much. She provides articles and worksheets to explore on our own time. I would highly recommend this process to anyone trying to work on issues or trying to get to know and understand themselves better.

Although my time with Dr. Garrison was brief (due to my own work shift in scheduling), she offered a deep understanding of my current situation and provided me with excellent resources to help navigate through this difficult time. I wish I could continue with therapy and hopefully can pick up again with Dr. Garrison later on when I have more time.

Once I outlined the struggle I was facing, she immediately pulled together a few assignments to help me deal with them. STRONGLY recommend as she's very non judgmental and supportive.

Work with me!
