Dr Baylor has been amazing! So lovely to talk to and I’ve found it so easy to open up to her. I was nervous about starting therapy but even after the first session I knew I’d made the right choice

I’ve been with Dr. Baylor for over a year now. Over that time I have made so much progress. I don’t need as frequent appointments anymore but it’s great to have someone that helps you see the bigger picture on tough days.

Dr. Batlor is incredible! She is not your typucal therapist, but more like a life coach, which is what I need. She provides a ton of education, great excercises to do while you are on your own, listens well and has a very good instinct on addressing the concerns/personal challenges most of us do not see in ourselves. I really enjoy my time with her and have so much confidence in her ability to help guide me through my difficult times.

Dr Baylor goes way beyond what I expected. In a 30 min session so much is achieved and a lot of follow up messages, exercises, encouragement, follow up.. She's kind, caring, undetstanding,, straight to the point.I love her energy and approach, very knowledable and likeable. She makes me see things from a different perspective and has a lot of exercises, coping strategies, ways and techniques to overcome and accept things. We come from very different cultures which doesn't matter at all. Havent been seeing her for very long but IHighly recommend!!!

Dr. Baylor has been great. I get a lot out of our sessions and also have some fun! She understands what I want and need and knows when to push and when to hold back. I’m glad I was matched with Dr. Baylor.
