Dr. Torok makes me feel seen and understood. I truly look forward to our sessions because I know she has my best interest at heart. I can’t imagine opening up and learning new ways to surpass the things I have gone through. She makes me feel like I am more than what I have gone through, believe it or not, not many people have done that for me.

Dr Torok is a knowledgeable and approachable advisor. She listens and is easy to open up to. In the few months I have been working with her, she has already helped me a great deal. I appreciate her advice and support.

Dr. Torok has helped me TREMENDOUSLY. Her expertise can not be praised enough—she is always assessing and giving me feedback on how to cope, process, let go. World of difference in the quality of my thoughts, feelings, and peacefulness in shedding the past. Thank you doctor!

When I first started seeing Dr. Mary I was I was a mess and in a very dark place. I will never forget how on my first day of therapy Dr. Mary said "I can help you", but I was skeptical. To say that Dr. Mary helped me doesn't do justice to all the amazing ways my life has changed for the good. My wish for everyone who is needing help is that they can have Dr. Mary as a therapist. She is a treasure; if you are willing to do the work, she will help you.

She's very responsive, helpful and understanding. She listens to what I need and helps me with those needs. She has given me things to help me work on what I need outside of our sessions as well which is great!

Written on Jul 04, 2022 after therapy with Mary for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, bipolar disorder, compassion fatigue, and adhd

I appreciate Dr.Torok’s understanding of my way of thinking, while being able to bring in new information to me in a way that’s easy for me to comprehend and connect to! She’s always very kind and welcoming and that has made therapy so much easier as someone who was anxious at the start.

Written on Jun 07, 2022 after therapy with Mary for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I have only had 3 sessions with Dr. Torok and after each session I have felt a bit better. I have been in a really bad state both physically and mentally when I started my sessions. Dr. Torok told me she would help me feel better at the end of our first session and I felt a huge weight being lifted off my shoulders. No one has ever said that to me before and I’m 46! I knew at that point I was going to be ok. She is wonderful and I’m looking forward to feeling like myself again with her help. Thank you Dr. Torok! I appreciate you taking the time to listen to me and then to help me accordingly.

Dr. T is a great source of knowledge and support. She is an active listener who provides feedback and options to improve your therapy progress and outcomes. I would most certainly recommend her to any of my friends, family or acquaintances.

Dr. Torok was short of amazing. I have gone through a handful of therapists (all in person) and none of them compare to Dr. Torok. She has extensive training in many kinds of therapies and uses honest empathy (which is the best!). Whoever gets to work with her is fortunate. She’s not a therapist you come by very often.

Dr. Torok I appreciate everything you did for me. Even if it was a short time, you showed me what it’s like to receive real therapy. Because of you, I believe that there are therapists out there that really love what they do.. :)
Ps to reader:

I know online therapy can sound like it’s probably not for you but coming from someone who thought this, I suggest you give it a shot. Time to put yourself first and who knows, maybe you’ll be matched with someone like Dr. Torok. (: thank you!
