You can tell Dr. Ward-Gravely really cares about her clients. She has really helped me from when we started. I had gone to 3 other therapists before her but really feel she is the best match for me because she is caring, transparent and good at giving it to you straight when needed in a way that pushes you in a direction to be the best version of yourself. HIGHLY recommend.
