Dr. Santoro is an incredible therapist. She has supported me as I navigate through some extremely difficult situations and has provided me with a safe place to process it all. I cannot recommend Dr. Santoro enough to anyone who is looking to begin therapy. 10/10!!

Dr. Santoro is a wonderful listener who works to genuinely understand before providing meaningful feedback and suggestions for self-improvement. I find my discussions with her calming and reassuring in the process of defining my next steps forward with confidence.
