Dr. Lewallen quickly got up to speed on the concerns with which I was struggling. She asked all the right questions, and was compassionate and professional throughout each and every session. She also has reached out to me between sessions, to check in with me and send encouraging messages. Considering the limitations of participating in therapy through written communication and/or telehealth sessions, I would say Dr. Lewallen would be an excellent fit for anyone needing emotional support, guidance, and the wisdom of a seasoned mental health professional.
