Dr. Forest has been very direct and informative. Thankful for her attentiveness to my "in between" appointment chats. She responds to them as promptly as can be expected, considering she has a life of her own, usually if I don't write I see that she has "checked in" to see if I did. You don't get that from a by local counselor!! Thank You Nancy!!

Dr. Forrest is attentive - even messaging on weekends. Her patients are always on her heart and on her mind. I've seen several counselors in person in the Phoenix area. Who would have known that my perfect counselor would be such a strong advocate and invested in my success and healing through text-based messaging from across the country. Thanks to Dr. Forrest, my psychiatrist has been pleased to update my status to "stable" in our last few sessions. I would recommend Dr. Forrest to anyone looking to find their self-worth, learn to set boundaries, and be the best contribution to society you can possibly be.
