I haven’t known Dr. Lott for very long, but I was immediately at ease with her. I have been in counseling in the past but I did not have a very good connection with my therapist. Dr. Lott is knowledgeable, personable, and very supportive. She makes me feel very comfortable and I look forward to our conversations each week.

Right from the start I started to feel better when I started talking about my problems and knowing that you don’t have to feel selfish when you keep talking about yourself is what makes me like working with Dr. Lott-Kamara.

I absolutely love having her, after being so hesitant about trusting a therapist again she got me to trust in them again. She has been so helpful and she always listens to me when I am having a tough time. She prioritizes my needs and I know as well for her other patients. I would totally recommend her and my experience overall has been extremely amazing.
