"Does not like to listen. Likes to do most of the talking. If you want to go somewhere to talk through things, this is not the place to go, in my opinion. Mr.
" makes assumptions without hearing the details of what is going on. Somewhat argumentative and arrogant. I have seen other in the past that are kind and patient enough to listen to your story and give you good, practical advise as to how to deal with the situation, as it applies to you. Mr.
does not do this. He doesn't give a person a
, nor does he ask enough questions about the situation to give personalized and individual advice. Everything I was told was something I could just read on-line, or in a book. I DO NOT recommend this individual for personal counseling.

"She is very easy to interact with and to talk to. She has good availability and it always on time. The fee is very reasonable and I am getting lots of good help from her.

Lakeland Personal Counselors Provider Name Locked
is wonderful. They are awesome. It is kind of a small place but they do excellent work. I think per visit is like $110 but for me, it is covered by insurance. Otherwise I wouldn’t have gone because it is rather costly. As far counselors go, the lady I saw was extraordinary. She was very helpful. She was good. They deal with some of the things like depression, divorce, like hoarding issues, ADD, ADHD people, pretty much the whole gamut of why you would go to a go to a counselor. I have referred people there. The office is really nice and the staff is friendly. It is comfortable and they are very understanding. They are exceptionally good.

Dr.
Lakeland Personal Counselors Provider Name Locked
was appointed to do a forensic evaluation of my family for a custody change. Prior to this, I had compiled 18 months of abusive emails, phone calls and videos from my ex-spouse. Our children had also been seeing a therapist, picked out by my ex, whose opinion was that my children should be with me, that my ex was too emotionally explosive. My children were suffering emotionally and academically, as evidenced by videos and testimony of school personnel. My ex took one of my children to a behavioral therapist without my knowledge or consent and had him temporarily diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, solely based on the parental evaluation, of which I was given no part, as the therapist didn't have time to formally test him.

set up my appointment in the middle of my ex's parenting time, something my ex was obviously upset about. Dr.

had to call me because my ex never set up an appointment with her in the first place, so I made the connection for that to happen. My ex's appointment was after 2 weeks of time with my children, of which I was not even allowed to speak with them. Despite all of the hard evidence, and collaterals available, Dr

found in favor of my ex. It was as though she rushed through the interviews, and wrote a multi-paged report based on nothing more than

my ex had spouted about me. While I wasn't allowed to read the report, I was informed that it basically stated my assessments were inconclusive because they were "too perfect." I was informed it was clear she did not use any collaterals, and it was as through she did not even review on shred of hard evidence I provided her.
For this bogus report, I had to front $1700. And now, two years later, my ex is flexing the beer muscles Dr.

has provided and

me for full custody, and inappropriately altering the law guardian's opinion of the situation only speaking to my ex, and not me, favoring my ex. Not only was this report expensive, but the court fees involved in this entire escapade has surpassed tens of thousands of dollars, which all could have been quickly avoided had Dr.

My biggest complaint is that by making the dog the focal point of "my hour" and letting it take over both rooms she was supposed to be doing therapy in was both unprofessional & truly
Lakeland Personal Counselors Provider Name Locked
to the level of negligence of the patient, which of
Lakeland Personal Counselors Provider Name Locked
in this case was myself. Most of tthe "Talk therapy" of my sessions she spent telling me about herself. I cannot speak to her ability to administer nor evaluate nuerofeedback therapy, which was my ONLY reason for going to see her, mainly because I only had a few sessions which made me feel exhuasted & nauseated, however, the so called therapy dog was being allowed free rein so who knows if the "therapy" was the true cause of that reaction or was it my allergy to the so called therapy dog. I largely suspect the dog is her pet, which she coddles at the expense of her clients/patients! My last scheduled appointment I did HAVE to cancel at less than 24 hours because of a sudden onset of dizziness which is a known symptom of my illness & made me fearful of driving and I had no one else to drive me. For this I was SEVERELY reprimanded and told if it happened again I would be charged for the whole hour. Her words to me were harsh, unsympathetic & her concern seemed mostly about the money she lost! I doubt many people are actually helped by this person, her ONLY interest seemed always to be her pet dog. I will add that I am an RN myself who has extensive experience in communication with at risk families secondary to my Neonatal Intensive Care career plus some experience at an in patient mental health facility.

He's wonderful. He was worth every dime for me. He saved our bacon in a lot of ways. Apart from ADHD, one of the twins was diagnosed with Artificial Defiance Disorder. He helped me understand how to deal with this whole situation. It was a temporally condition and the doctor was very helpful.

She is awesome. She has a special needs child and she has been down the road. She had the experience herself of being depressed and being under stress. She can totally relate to you. It is not something she read out of a book. She has life experience with it. She understands.

hosts an annual planning session that has been very beneficial to my business. In addition to helping us to plan the year she also brought up a lot of good points regarding business practices. As a result of that day of planning and listening to guest speakers, I ended up hiring the attorney at the event to help me through the corporation process. Prior to that, I was a sole proprietor. It's one more better business practice that I am grateful to have in place. I am so glad I went to that event. Thank you

makes me feel extremely comfortable, and she genuinely cares about my over all well being. Every appointment she emails me a recap of our time together. She has really opened my eyes to all of the possibilities available to me in my life. I would recommend everyone use her services.
