what our clients say

I was extremely apprehensive on my first visit because I was in a very bad mental state. Amanda was very thorough, very friendly, and made me feel very comfortable from the very beginning. As I recovered I looked forward to our visits but in the end we mutually decided that it was time for me to leave the nest and fly away. If I ever need her I can always call on her. There was something about the layout of the office, the furnishings, and the calming energy that always put me at ease. My first encounter with psychiatric counseling was definitely a positive experience and something that I'll cherish.
This practice has not only helped my mental health, but I have been treated in a way that is caring and thoughtful. I feel like I'm more than just the 10:30 client - there's a vested interest in my well being. Amanda Farrell is who I've been working with for a few years now and I highly recommend her! I also feel confident that anyone in the practice is trustworthy and reliable. Again, highly recommended!
Amanda is an absolute RARE find. My husband even agreed that she does….actually….. care about me and my health. I’m 50 and this might be the first time in my life that I’ve felt that my doctor/therapist really wants me to be happy and successful in life. Starting therapy when I was in my 20’s so there is a long list of docs/therapist that I’ve seen over the years. Highly recommend — especially if you’ve started feeling like you’re just another patient in the queue.
This is the best psychiatry practice I have been to. Everyone I have worked with has been empathetic and understanding. The office feels very warm and I feel very taken care of. I always know when I call or email, Riley will be super responsive to my needs. Highly recommend!
Amanda has been incredibly helpful. I'm much happier and more productive.
Wellness Psychiatry goes above and beyond. Everyone from admin to clinical staff. The team fosters warmth and are very attentive to your needs. Addressing mental health has felt overwhelming but this team makes it me feel comfortable and supported. Thanks!
