Just from my first session I can tell I'll be back. I felt that she gave me great dialogue at appropriatetimes while listening to me intently. The trust I've built with her instantly was more than enough to make me a loyal patient from here on out. I can tell with her I'm going to make alot of progress.

Unlike other therapists I’ve seen, Dr. Ray does not hesitate to answer questions you have. There was no beating around thebush trying to get me to ask myself the right question to arrive at an epiphany. Instead, I left her office with a solution that I was comfortable with to the imminent issue that brought me in, tools to use going forward and great homework for if I want to dive deeper. I will be a regular with Dr. Ray.
