Dr Fitzgerald brings scientific principles to my counseling sessions which works well with how I think and how I learn. She is easy to talk to and gives great ideas on things to work on between sessions.

She's been so great in explaining to me how to change what I want to change but also why I'm doing what I'm doing so I can not only change my behavior to get the results I want but can identify it. She's the best.

Dr. Fitzgerald understands what my goals are. She helps me to achieve them by using a scientific approach that is easy to understand. I especially appreciate her ability to reference journals and studies on the fly, and explain how the human brain contributes to my behaviors.

Had a great experience. I love that she doesn’t dumb down concepts or even terminology and adapts her style to the patient. She seems very intuitive and insightful. Wasn’t sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised.

Dr. Fitzgerald is insightful, patient, easy to talk to and thorough. She covers a lot of bases by combining real world, every day experience with her knowledge of neuroscience - i.e., the scientific explanation of "why" we act the way we act. I've gotten a lot out of my sessions with Dr. Fitzgerald.

Dr. Fitzgerald is extremely thoughtful and professional. She's amazing at breaking down concepts in a way that makes sense and providing information and context on what I'm going through that's truly helpful.

Dr. Fitzgerald is wonderful! Before our weekly sessions, I felt helpless and frustrated about my situation. She listens, understands your needs, and coaches you to make practical steps in order to regain confidence in your daily life. I’d recommend her to anyone and everyone!

Dr. Fitzgerald has helped me more in our 2 sessions than 6 months of therapy in the past. I love how she explains the way our brains work and why our bodies react to anxiety or trauma and how to work through it all. She’s compassionate and genuine and doesn’t waste any time trying to help. It’s been so helpful and I’m very grateful.

It has been a pleasure working with Dr. Fitzgerald. She has seen in me things that I didn’t see in myself. She’s a great listener and explains everything that you don’t understand. I definitely recommend her ! I look forward to our sessions and she doesn’t disappoint.
