From the front desk to behind the door, the past five months have been nothing but positive. I haven't had a single bad experience and for that, I'm thankful. Rose and Ashley, thank you.

The mobile teams are awesome. The crisis line could use some work but overall they will do their best to help you.

Waited two months for my appointment. During my evaluation, it felt like the woman was trying to speed through the process to make her next appointment on time. There were a lot of problems that I wasn't able to address and in the end, I was essentially told ' take some Prozac and this antihistamine and I think you should feel better.' when I asked if I would be seeing a counselor or therapist anytime soon, I was told to wait another month to hear about an appointment, despite the fact that I scheduled for one 2months in advance. 'We had some people quit on us so you might have to wait a little longer but I'll email my boss to see how soon we could get you in.' If my psych evaluation was rushed, I hold little faith that that email will be sent with any urgency. However, I've read positive reviews, and am still starting up here so time will tell. But if you come here, I hope you receive a more thorough treatment than what I experienced.

My 11 yr old son started out here after transferring from another place. We went to his intake and Merna was very aweet and nice. She assigned us a therapist for counseling. That is when we met Alvaro. Let me tell you, he is absolutely awesome at what he does. He tried to relate with my son and he was very good with him. My son really enjoyed his "visits" with him. In the past my son had a hard time opening up to anyone and dreaded therapy sessions. Alvaro really helped alot with things and I have definitely seen a change in my son. We have relocated to Fl, but if we had stayed there he would still be working with Alvaro.
