"I have been a patient of Norma's and she has helped me to grow as a person and learn to stand up for myself. She has given me guidance when needed and just listens when also needed. She has helped me deal with the sudden death of my father 21 years ago who was a very important person in my life. She is also helping me deal with my mother's ailing health and reassuring me that all my feelings are normal. I am very thankful she came into my life and look forward to talking with her every two weeks."

— Sylvia

"Norma not only helped me through childhood issues, but also with self- esteem, marital and parenting difficulties. She has changed my life in such a positive way. Norma is professional, compassionate, and a positive support system in my life."

"About three years ago I had reached the lowest point in my life. I was depressed, hopeless, and exhausted by the emotional roller coaster I'd been riding on for several years .It was a Saturday afternoon and the moment of an important decision. I realized that either I get help now, or risk never having a future. Being shy and having social anxiety made me nervous just at the thought of calling someone for help, so I poured over profiles of nearby therapists until I found 'the right one.'  Out of over a couple of dozen profiles, Norma stood out to me as the most approachable. Her profile painted a picture of someone who was understanding, experienced, caring, and she was female, which I preferred. I felt like this was someone I would feel comfortable talking to, so I called and scheduled my first therapy appointment for the following week. It was the best decision I had made in a very long time. She helped me step out of my shell, let down my guard, and see my situation clearly. For the first time I could remember, I could start to see a future ahead of me and a life that I would be happy living. She helped me change from being so afraid of social interactions that my brain would lock-up and go blank, to having the occasional dinner after work with a group of co-workers. My self confidence is growing, I feel stable, unafraid, and happy in a way I never thought possible. Thank you, Norma, for helping me get my life back and on track!"

"When my husband was killed a year and a half ago, my daughter was devastated. One area that was severely affected was her academics. The social worker at the school gave me Norma's name and phone number and encouraged me to call her. I am amazed at the extent of healing I have seen in my daughter's life. She made an immediate connection with Norma, who in turn, helped her open up and learn to deal with the pain and trauma inside. Her school work has improved tremendously, and she is learning how to live at peace with the loss. I am so, so grateful!!"

"My husband and I have been going to couples' therapy with Norma. When we started, we were fighting constantly. Now we rarely ever fight and more importantly are more connected than ever before. This does not happen overnight, our regular visits to Norma provide the commitment to working on our relationship. During this time, I realized there were issues from my past that I needed to work on individually in order for our marriage to be successful.  Norma and I worked through some instances of trauma using EMDR therapy, which helped me greatly to accept and move on from those traumas. We have come to think of Norma as a friend."

"Since working with Norma, I can honestly say I would not be where I am today without her guidance. Through a combination of traditional talk therapy and progressive therapy, she has helped me work through personal challenges, milestones, and countless ups and downs.

"Norma is sincere, compassionate and respectful. She is the consummate professional and it is clear that her patients' health and well-being are her top priorities.

"Thank you Norma, for your endless patience, wisdom and advice. The progress and improvements I have made in my life could not have been accomplished without you, and for that I am extremely grateful."

"I have worked with Norma for a few years, and during that time, she has helped me change my life in the most positive ways. She has filled my toolbox with her wisdom, insight and helpful suggestions on successfully getting past life's obstacles. Norma is supportive, compassionate, easy to talk with and truly cares about her clients.

"She employs a technique that has helped me heal from past traumas far quicker and more effectively than traditional talk therapy. I am forever grateful that I found her and for all that she has done to help me get back on my path."

— Michelle
