  • Sandra B.

    I felt very comfortable working with Alicia, as i felt as if she understood everything I am going thru very well. Ms. Frank was able to offer a step by step approach to helping me to understand why I am drinking as well as the effects I am having on those around me. I learned to talk about my feelings as opposed to swallowing them with alcohol. I would recommend Ms. Frank in a heart beat to anyone seeking a positive outcome.

  • Timothy W.

    This is a very caring place to gain more insight into my own issues. Everyone is very nice here. Ms. Frank, who is my therapist is very helpful to me, as she is keenly aware of the dynamics that take place within us and between us.

  • Stephen R.

    I liked the fact that i felt very comfortable in the warm and cozy atmosphere that Ms. Frank's office provides. Everyone is very nice. Ms. Frank is truly concerned about my welfare and helping me to become a better me.

  • Lorraine F.

    Alicia will always take my call or call me back as soon as she can, should she be with another client when i do call.. They are truly interested in ensuring that everyone feels welcome and very satisfied with their experience

The best advice is to speak briefly by phone in order to confirm if you are a good fit for each other.

The questions that customers should think through are basically, what are you seeking to gain via the therapy process.  It is important to not only work thru the pain; but to be able to state what your therapeutic goals are as well.
